Author's Notes

I divided the toppings for this pizza into three sections and spread tomato sauce as the base under the toppings:

Section 1: soft goat cheese, sliced zucchini, thinly sliced red onion, grape tomatoes halved.

Section 2: grated goat cheddar, nitrate-free pepperoni

Section 3: grape tomatoes halved, burrata cheese and fresh basil (added after baking)

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Place the Quinoa (2 1/2 cups) in a large bowl. Add enough water to cover the quinoa and let sit overnight or at least 8 hours. After 8 hours, drain the water and rinse the quinoa thoroughly with a wire mesh strainer, or pour it into a nutbag to rinse. Do not skip this step even if you are using 'pre-rinsed' quinoa. It won't work unless it's soaked for a long time to absorb water and soften.
Step 2
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Step 3
Add the quinoa, Water (1 cup) , the Baking Powder (1 Tbsp) , Garlic Powder (2 Tbsp) , Italian Seasoning (2 Tbsp) , Sea Salt (1 tsp) and Nutritional Yeast (1/4 cup) to a food processor. Blend until a smooth batter forms.
Step 4
Pour the batter onto the baking sheet, using a spatula to spread evenly across the sheet.
Step 5
Bake the crust for 15 minutes. Flip the crust, removing the parchment paper, and bake for 10 minutes more, or until golden brown.
Step 6
Top the crust with your favorite toppings and then put back in the oven for another 10 minutes.
Step 7
Cut into squares and serve!
