Quinoa Pizza Bites


These nuggets of goodness are fantastic in theory, but the recipe itself didn’t work out for me great. My friend makes these amazing quinoa pizza things, and I thought I’d try some, finding a recipe on the internet. I think a part of my problem is that I added too much quinoa (I think? I wasn’t measuring. I just threw all the quinoa I had into it), and they didn’t hold together as well as I would have liked. Oh well, if I’m not following the recipe then it’s really my own fault. I thought these would be great for a toddler’s lunch, but alas, he won’t eat them. So I end up eating them, and that’s okay because despite everything, they taste awesome.

The original recipe is found on So Very Blessed. Also, I didn’t add any pepperoni, thinking that my son probably shouldn’t have as much prepared deli meat that I seem to enjoy. Now that he won’t eat them,  though, I wish I had added it!

Quinoa Pizza Bites


2 cups cooked quinoa

2 large eggs

1 cup chopped onion

1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

2 tsp minced garlic

1/2 cup fresh basil, chopped

1/2 tsp seasoning salt

1 tsp paprika

1 tsp dried crushed oregano

pizza sauce for dipping

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.


Mix together all ingredients, except pizza sauce, in a medium mixing bowl.

Distribute mixture into a greased mini muffin tin, filling each cup to the top (1 heaping Tbs each), and press down gently to compact.


Bake for 15-20 minutes. Dip them into the pizza/tomato sauce, which makes them extra yummy.
