Ingredients
For the base:
  • 2 cups cooked quinoa
  • 1½ teaspoons kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 eggs
  • oil, for frying
For the pizzas:
  • ½ – ⅔ cup tomato sauce (ketchup would work in a pinch)
  • ½ – ⅔ cup shredded pizza-style cheese (or the shredded cheese of your choice)
Instructions
To make the base:
  1. Heat a frying pan to medium heat.
  2. Combine the quinoa, eggs and spices in a bowl and stir to combine.
  3. Add a bit of oil to the pan, then form patties and fry until golden brown on both sides.
  4. Note: At this point, the patties can be refrigerated for until you are ready to finish the pizzas.
To make the pizzas:
  1. Heat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and place the patties on the sheet. Spread a small amount of tomato sauce on each patty, then top with shredded cheese. Use more or less cheese, depending on how cheesy you like your pizza.
  3. Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes, depending on how dark you like your pizzas.
  4. Remove from oven and serve hot.
