I don’t know about you but when I get busy with the holidays the last thing that I want to think about is what is for dinner. Sure, I spend hours planning special dinners, but those day to day meals can really be annoying. One thing that saves our family time and again is my habit of keeping a stocked freezer. One thing that you will always find – this quinoa pizza crust.
If this recipe looks a little familiar it is because it is a modification of another quinoa pizza crust I posted earlier in the year. A recipe in Cooks Illustrated inspired me to try to create a pizza dough crust that used both hot cereal mix and quinoa. We love it so much and over time I’ve tweaked it to create a crust that never fails to please.
What I love is that the recipe makes three crusts, saves well in the refrigerator and also freezes very well. If I know I am going to have a busy day I take a crust out of the freezer the night before and let it thaw in the fridge. I typically will bring it to room temperature before cooking, but I’ve skipped this and the results were still good. Most of the time I make a double recipe, so my efforts yield six pizza crusts.
Get creative with this one! We make Mexican pizzas, veggie pizzas and sometimes I use the dough to make cinnamon sugar bites for the boys!
