I love quinoa and use it whenever I get the chance.
You will need a 9"x13" baking pan.
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit/190 Celsius
1 cup uncooked quinoa
2 cups salted water
2 Tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
2 cups pizza sauce or tomato sauce- you can use a 15 oz. can
2 to 3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese.
Favorite pizza toppings
Rinse the quinoa in water if it is not pre-rinsed.
In a large pan with lid, add the water and salt it. Stir in the quinoa and bring to a boil.
Lower the heat and cover.
Cook until water is absorbed, about 20 minutes.
Let cool slightly.
Stir in the egg and Parmesan cheese.
Spread into the bottom of your baking dish.
Spread the pizza sauce over the quinoa.
Sprinkle with your pizza toppings.
Cover with the cheese.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until cheese is melted and bubbly.
Take out and let stand for a few minutes.
Cut into pieces and serve.
I usually get 12 to 15 pieces out of this.
