Quinoa Pizza Bites
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4
  • 1 cup low sodium vegetable broth
  • ½ cup non-fat shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 0.5 tsp paprika
  • 1tsp dried oregano
  • ½ cup marinara sauce
  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F
  2. Add vegetable broth and quinoa to a medium-sized pot and put on the stove.
  3. Cover the pot and let liquid come to a boil. As soon as it comes to a boil, turn the heat down so that it is just at a simmer. Let the lid sit so that it is not fully covering the pan, to prevent the contents from boiling over.
  4. Let simmer 10-15 minutes. (You’ll know the quinoa is cooked when it has absorbed all of the broth, looks clear, and is tender!) Turn the heat off, fluff with a fork and let it sit with the lid on for 5 minutes.
  5. Add cooked quinoa, cheese, onion, egg, paprika, oregano, and garlic powder into a mixing bowl and stir the contents.
  6. Spray a muffin tin with oil in a spray container to prevent sticking, and pour in the mixed ingredients. (The thinner the layer of quinoa mixture, the crispier the “pizza” will be!)
  7. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until golden brown. Allow bites to cool completely to mold their shape and then remove from muffin tins and serve
  8. Dip quinoa pizza bite into the marinara sauce, and enjoy!
