Quinoa Flour Pizza Dough

Yield: 2 pizzas (about 12 in long, 6 in wide) or can be made into 4 individual pizzas

Ingredients:

1 tablespoon Active Dry Yeast

2 tablespoons honey

1 ½ cups warm water (between 105-115 degrees F)

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 teaspoon salt

2 cups quinoa flour

1 cup all purpose flour (sub: whole wheat, or gluten-free mix)

 

Toppings of choice:

I used leftover roasted asparagus, caramelized red onions, fresh grated Parmesan and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar before serving.

Some other ideas: (average 1 ½- 2 cups of vegetables for topping and ½-1 cup cheese for sprinkling)

  1. Sundried tomatoes, goat cheese, fresh rosemary
  2. Ricotta, roasted carrots, pesto
  3. Fresh basil, olive oil, balsamic
  4. Goat cheese, honey, pistachios

 

Directions:

  1. Mix yeast and warm water in a glass bowl, set aside for at least 5 minutes or until mixture is foamy and doubled in size.
  2. After 5-10 minutes (or when yeast is activated), add the honey, olive oil, salt and flours. Mix in a stand mixer fixed with a dough hook for at least 10 minutes or until the dough separates from the bowl and a ball starts to form.
  3. Place a dishtowel over the bowl and let the dough rest for at least 30 minutes or until the dough has doubled in size.
  4. Punch down the dough and place onto a floured surface. Knead for about 5 minutes by hand and then place on a sprayed baking pan for cooking.
  5. Once toppings are added, bake for 25-30 minutes at 375 degrees or until the crust is lightly browned and cheese is melted.
  6. Serve warm & enjoy!
