Pizza Crust- Gluten Free Quinoa recipe

Gluten-free pizza recipe- these 4words I’ve been eagerly waiting to post for years now. This quinoa gluten-free pizza crust recipe is perfectly thick and chewy, and no kneading required. Make it in your oven and top it with your favorite toppings! My go-to gluten-free pizza crust is a simple staple for your kitchen.

Ingredients (for 4 persons):

  • radicchio (red lettuce) 16 leaves
  • extra virgin olive oil 2 tbsp
  • salt a pinch
  • red onion 1, in thin rings
  • olive oil 1 tsp
  • cane sugar 1 tsp
  • vinegar 1/2 tsp
  • quinoa 200 g (preferably soaked for a few hours)
  • water 50 to 100 ml
  • coconut oil 2 tbsp
  • salt 1 tbsp
  • garlic 2 cloves
  • oregano 1 the
  • baking powder 1 tsp
  • cheese 200 grams
  • olives 80 grams
  • mozzarella a scoop
  • grated parmesan 8 tbsp
  • spicy oil 4 tsp
  • basil leaves


  • Mix the radicchio with the extra virgin olive oil and a pinch of salt, set aside.
  • Caramelize the red onion in olive oil and after 25 minutes, gently add the sugar and vinegar. Leave to caramelize for another 10 minutes.
  • Now make the bottom of the pizza. Rinse the soaked quinoa before using it and mix it with the water, salt, garlic, oregano, and baking powder. Mix into a smooth batter (like for pancakes). Heat a little coconut oil in a pan each time and fry the 4 pizza bases one after the other until they are cooked (turn halfway).
  • Brush each bottom with cheese and then top with red lettuce, caramelized onion, olives, slices of mozzarella, and a tablespoon of parmesan each. Place each pizza under the grill for another 5 minutes and then sprinkle with the rest of the parmesan, a few drops of spicy oil, and a few basil leaves.
