DEEP DISH VEGGIE PIZZA ON A QUINOA CRUST

Quinoa can be used to prepare wonderful gluten-free pizza crusts.  This quinoa crust pizza recipe is in the deep dish style, with lots of fresh veggies.  For a richer pizza, you can also add some of the store-bought vegan cheese that is closer to the standard non-vegan pizza.  Many of the new non-dairy cheese are very stretchy and gooey, very similar to regular cheeses.  However, be sure to choose those without casein (a milk protein) and carrageenan (an unhealthy additive).

Instructions
  1. Soak the quinoa for 8 hours or overnight.
  2. Rinse and drain the quinoa then put in a blender with all the other ingredients. Blend this mixture until it reaches a smooth consistency.
  3. Line a round or square pan with parchment paper and pour in the quinoa mixture.
  4. Bake for 25 minutes at 375 degrees.
  5. Toss the mushrooms, red onions, green pepper, and zucchini with olive oil. Roast the vegetables while the crust is baking.
  6. Allow crust to cool for 5 minutes and then take out of the pan to remove the parchment paper. Place crust back in the pan once you have removed the parchment paper. Top with your medley of roasted veggies.
  7. Pour ½ cup of crushed tomatoes over the pizza (add the olive oil and nutritional yeast) and bake for 10 minutes at 375. Serve and enjoy!
Recipe Notes

You can also add some of the store-bought vegan cheeses to your pizza for a richer meal closer to a standard non-vegan pizza.  Many of the new non-dairy cheeses are very stretchy and gooey, very much like regular dairy-based cheeses.  With dairy-alternative cheeses, be sure to choose those without casein (a milk protein) and carrageenan (an unhealthy additive).
