EASY QUINOA PIZZA BOWLS

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup (dry) quinoa
  • 2 cups chicken or vegetable stock
  • 2 (14-ounce) jars pizza sauce
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 2-3 cups of your favorite pizza toppings (I used pepperonis, diced green peppers, diced button mushrooms, and thinly-sliced red onions, but see other ideas below)
  • optional toppings: grated Parmesan cheese, crushed red peppers

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. prepare dinner quinoa in the chook or vegetable inventory in line with package commands.  (Or you could use this tutorial for a way to cook dinner quinoa.)
  3. while the quinoa has finished cooking, fluff the quinoa with a fork.  Then stir about half cup pizza sauce into the quinoa till frivolously mixed.  Set aside.
  4. gently spray 6 large (10-ounce) oven-safe ramekins with cooking spray.  area the ramekins on a big baking tray.
  5. spread about 2 Tablespoons of pizza sauce flippantly over the lowest of every ramekin.
  6. Layer each with about 1/four cup of quinoa, and unfold with a spoon to flatten.
  7. Layer each lightly with pinch of shredded Mozzarella.
  8. Layer every with a unmarried layer of pizza toppings.
  9. Repeat via layering each with every other layer of sauce, quinoa, Mozzarella, pizza toppings, accompanied by using a final layer of Mozzarella.  The ramekins should be full however not overflowing.
  10. transfer the baking sheet complete of ramekins to the oven, and bake for 20 minutes, or till the cheese is melted and the substances are heated thru.  At this point, you could both remove the pizza bowls from the oven.  Or if you’d like to get the cheese greater golden on top, you could flip the oven to “broil”.  Then — maintaining a near eye at the cheese so that it does not burn — broil the pizza bowls till the cheese is golden on pinnacle.
  11. get rid of and sprinkle every pizza bowl with a pinch of Parmesan cheese and crushed pink peppers, if favored.  Serve without delay.
