- 1 cup of dry quinoa or quinoa flour
- 1 sweet potato
- 1 tsp salt
Pizza is my weakness. If it only were healthier! … Well, wish granted. Not only is this one of the healthiest pizzas you’ll come across, but it’s also one of the tastiest and easiest recipes for gluten free pizza.
- Grind up one cup of dry quinoa (using either a spice grinder or food processor). If you don’t have any of those ingredients you can also simply use quinoa flour. By the way, any kind of quinoa works perfectly fine.
- Chop up one whole sweet potato or yam and steam until tender.
- Peel and mash (hand masher works well) the sweet potato.
- Mix all ingredients, adding a dash of salt.
- Using your hands, flatten ingredients on a bake sheet (best to lay down parchment paper first, so the dough doesn’t stick). Flatten and shape into a circle (may make two pizzas, so don’t force all onto one bake sheet). The circle will be about 6″ in circumference and about 1/2″ thick.
- Bake in oven at 350 degrees for about 18 minutes, or until starting to brown at the edges.
- Take out the oven and place onto a cooling rack and let cool for at least 5-10 minutes before eating.
Any kind of topping works on this pizza crust. You can try fresh tomatoes, a dressed salad, garlic and olive oil, freshly squeezed lemon, or tomato sauce with your topping of choice. Note: you can also use this recipe as a more traditional flat bread or crouton.
