photoI’ve been experimenting with gluten free pizza bases for a while now. Many have been ordinary, but finally I have come up with a delicious pizza base that is easy and versatile.

Quinoa has superior nutritional properties. It has a high protein content and contains all the essential amino acids which helps control insulin and maintain healthy hair, skin and nails. Quinoa should be soaked first to make it more digestible.

 

Quinoa Pizza Base

3/4 cup water (for soaking)

1/2 cup quinoa

1/4 cup water

pinch of salt

1 teaspoon dried oregano (or herbs of your choice)

1/2 garlic clove (optional)

Directions

Cover quinoa with water and soak overnight.

Rinse quinoa with cold water until liquid runs clear.

Add quinoa, 1/4 cup water and other ingredients to the blender and blend.

The mixture will resemble batter. Pour the batter into a greased frypan.

When the base starts to set and bubble, flip over. Add your favourite toppings.

Makes two 16cm diameter bases.

You can also cut bases into triangles, grill and serve with your favourite dips.
