Pretty good & EASY pizza crust for those of us trying to eat gluten free. Recipe was found at TastyEatsAtHome.com adapted from "For Life Personal Chef". (Prep time includes 8 hours soaking time for the quinoa).

Top Review by Paris D

This was good, but it was very difficult to deal with, took a lot of time to make, and really didn't turn out to be a pizza crust; it was more of a casserole once the pizza toppings were on it.
