Quinoa Pizza Crust

Scripture To Live By:
Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another. No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us. Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit. And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world.Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God. And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him. 1 John 4:7-16
Recipe Post:
 I am trying to eat  more healthy these days. One of my favorite foods is pizza.  The crust that I make is not very healthy, so I searched to find a healthier recipe for the crust.  I found this recipe at Tasty Eats At Home using Quinoa instead of flour. I was a little doubtful if I would care for it, but I didn't want to do with out my Friday Night Pizza, so I thought I would give it a try. I was truly surprise at how well it turned out.

I adapted the ingredients slightly to suit our taste.

Ingredients needed:
2 cups of Quinoa
1 cup of water
1/4 cup of olive oil
1 teaspoon Kosher salt
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon garlic powder

Topping
1 medium Onion
Mixture of green, orange, and  red peppers (one of each)
1 Tablespoon Butter
Chunky Ragu Spaghetti Sauce (1/4 cup per pizza)
Feta Cheese as desired
Mozzarella Cheese as desired
(add your favorite toppings)

Directions:
Pour 2 cups of Quinoa into a bowl and cover with water and soak approximately 8 hours.  If you want to have it for dinner put it in to soak in the morning.

When ready to make the pizza crust, drain the water from the quinoa, set aside.  In blender, add  salt, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, olive oil, and 1 cup of water.   Mix with blender and start blending in Quinoa a little at a time until all Quinoa is blended. If it is to thick add a little more water until the consistency is similar to corn bread batter.

  
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  Coat the bottom of cast iron skillet with cooking oil and place in oven and heat until hot.  (I used an 8 inch cast iron skillet. I have only one skillet so I had to repeat the steps as each pizza cooked. (You could use what ever size skillet you have but your yield would be different than mine.)

Pour 1/3 of the batter into hot skillet and return to oven.  Bake 20 minutes on one side, then remove from oven and flip Quinoa Pizza Crust over and bake an additional 20 minutes.






While the crust is baking, cut up onions and pepper and place in a skillet with 1 Tablespoon of butter and fry, over low heat, until tender and caramelized.  



When  Quinoa Pizza Crust is done, add the toppings you desire and return to oven for an additional 10 minutes. (I used Chunky Ragu  Spaghetti Sauce (use sparingly so it doesn't soak into crust); caramelized onions and peppers; Feta and Mozzarella cheese.)



 Remove from oven and serve immediately.  There is enough batter to make 2 thicker 8 inch crusts or 3 thinner 8 inch crusts.  I cut each 8 inch pizza into 4 slices.  





I was a little skeptical as to whether or not this would be any good, but I must say I was pleasantly pleased with the way it turned out.  I am sure this is one recipe I will make over and over again.  My husband enjoyed it as well.  It is definitely a keeper.  Give it a try and see what you think.You can eat this pizza without the guilt.  I can hardly wait to make it again.  


Blessings to you,
