Quinoa pizza for the gluten intolerant – it’s lovely (just like ordinary pizza, I promise)


This is how the base looks after I’ve baked it for 10 minutes ..


This pizza is just as easy to make as the spelt one! No yeast, no fuss, no nothing 🙂


Quinoa is a very, very nutritious seed that behaves like a grain. It is very rich in iron, good fats, protein (12-18%), calcium and more. It is naturally gluten free. Quinoa has a very mild delicate, slightly nutty flavor.


Remember to splash some good quality coldpressed olive oil over your pizza before you start enjoying it! Olive oil helps your digestion and makes you happy and healthy.






My Recipe

Prep Time: 15 mins
Cook Time: 2x10 mins
Yields: 1 large pizza


  • 100g quinoa flour (OR 80g organic rice flour and 30g almond flour)
  • 2 tsp oregano, marjoram or basil (optional)
  • 1/2-1 tsk himalaya- or seasalt
  • 1-2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp coldpressed olive oil
  • 2 tsp psyllium husk and 100ml hot water (boiled) (mix together in a glass)


  1. Heat oven to 190°C/fan 170°C/gas 5
  2. Mix together quinoa flour, spices and salt
  3. Add the olive oil
  4. In a glas mix together psyllium husk and boiling water and then pour that mix into the quinoa mixture
  5. I then simply stir together briefly with a spoon and then I use my hands and I add hot water if this is too dry
  6. Use quinoa flour on the table and a rolling pin to roll out the dough
  7. This will make one large pizza. I use baking paper under the pizza and my oven tray.
  8. Bake the base for around 10 minutes. I often turn it half way through and bake it on the other side too. To make the crust really crusty! :)
  9. Then simply put on your pizza base what you love
  10. Bake for another 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted

Additional Info

I love to mix half and half organic ketchup and tomato puree on my pizza base and then shredded mozzarella cheese. I very often start by washing and cutting one sweet potato and zucchini into thin slices. I put the slices on a baking paper on an oven tray/oven proof dish. Brush it with olive oil, salt and pepper and bake for around 20-30 minutes until baked through. This is a lovely pizza topping!

    Thank you dear Claudia, I’m happy to hear from you <3 Where do you live? I have a book in English you could use (What should I feed my baby). I could send it to you. Mostly vegan and vegetarian dishes there 🙂
