Pizza with a Quinoa Crust

21 Day Fix Approved Pizza with Quinoa Crust

Saturday nights are pizza and movie nights in our house. We like to order a pizza, put on a movie and enjoy an evening of hand-tossed crusts, gooey melted cheese, and Pixar characters. Since the Fix, we’ve stopped ordering our weekly pizza, which has led me to all kinds of clean eating pizza-making attempts. I frequently make my own homemade crusts (which are 21 Day Fix approved), but I was completely intrigued when I came across this quinoa crust recipe from QueenEydie. This crust cooks up like a dream. It’s sturdy enough to load up your favorite toppings, but still folds nicely like a good hand-tossed crust.

  1. This crust sounds delicious! Do you need to grease the cooking sheet when cooking the crust?
