You saw my last quinoa pizza recipe right? Did you try it? Cause how much easier can it get to make pizza dough? I mean, just boil some quinoa then process with water and bake. Easy-peasy. I have wanted to make a sweet pizza for a very long time, but I just never wanted to break out the flour and rolling-pin for crust. It was just too much trouble. But quinoa crust? So easy that I knew it was time. And it’s the perfect pizza that can be enjoyed for breakfast or dessert for an elimination diet! Hope you get to enjoy some vegan, gluten-free, and sugar-free Sweet Quinoa Pizza – Elimination Diet Recipe.
I love pizza like any other person … and sandwiches. How do those two things correlate? Well crusty goodness and sweet treats. Meaning you are going to take the awesomeness of a sweet sandwich and slather that all over a pizza crust. Not just any pizza crust, but a quinoa crust. I made my own sweet almond butter for the “sauce” and sliced apples super-thin with my mandolin – carefully I might add. No cuts please. Then it’s super easy. I just can’t get over how easy it is to do this crust. Again, I spread it out super-thin on my smallest baking sheet covered with oily parchment paper. You can use whatever fruity toppings you like, but since I am so wanting Fall to get here and cooler weather I was in an apple mood.
Start by cooking your quinoa; pour quinoa and water in a pot and bring to a boil then lower heat to medium and simmer until fluffy and all water is gone-about 20 minutes. Let cool enough to touch then dump into food processor. Add cinnamon and turn on. Pour milk in intervals through spout and process until a ball forms. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread a little oil over sheet then dump quinoa onto paper. Spread out with fingers. Bake at 425 degrees for 20 minutes. Dump almonds and maple syrup into small food processor and process until running butter -add a little water to get moving if needed. Slice apple thinly with mandolin. Take crust out and flip onto large cutting board and peel paper off. Reline sheet with paper and slide crust back on. Bake for 10 more minutes and take out. Spread almond butter over crust and lay apple slices over crust. Bake 10 more minutes. Take and enjoy!
