  • 3/4 cup cup quinoa
  • 3 cm covered of water
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tbsp olive oil


  1. Soak the quinoa in water, covering it by at least 1 inch, for 6 - 8 hours or overnight.

  2. Once you're ready to make the crust, preheat the oven to 220° C. Line your desired baking forms with parchment paper and drizzle with olive oil in the centre. Spread around with a brush until evenly coated and set the forms aside.

  3. Rinse quinoa thoroughly, then add to a blender. Add remaining ingredients and blend on high until smooth and creamy. This should resemble a thick pancake batter.

  4. Pour the batter into prepared baking forms and bake for 15 minutes. Remove, flip and return to oven baking for another 10 - 15 minutes until browned and edges are crispy.

  5. Top with sauce, cheese and any other toppings you'd like and bake for 12 - 15 minutes or until cheese has melted and started to brown. Remove, let cool for a few minutes and serve immediately!
