Quinoa Pizza

Robust Recipe: Quinoa Pizza!

I’ve made Quinoa Pizza a few times for different guests we’ve had over for dinner and these individual sized pizzas have been well received. I got the idea for these from a couple different pinterest sites, however have tweaked this particular recipe to my liking.

Being made with quinoa, they are obviously higher in protein and fiber and much lower in fat than your traditional pizza. Therefore are a great alternative to take out! I highly recommend giving them a try!
