Happy Monday & June! I love new months… why? Well a fresh new slate. New goals. New experiences. And summer! Okay so onto food – a few months ago I received Deliciously Ella by Ella Woodward’s vegan cookbook. I haven’t had a chance to try out any recipes until last Friday. With my oldest being gluten and dairy free – I knew we had to try this crust out for our traditional Friday pizza night. Although many think that quinoa crust is a new thing – it’s been floating around the internet for several years. It had crossed my radar on Pinterest in 2012 but got lost in the shuffle of life. I’m so happy I tried Ella’s. It was quite good paired up with my kale pesto and topped with our vegan favorite cheese. It is crazy easy to prepare but preparation is necessary the night before. I hope you give this one a try.
Thinking this would also working nicely making a dessert pizza – adjusting the seasonings you add. Think cinnamon and some vanilla extract. Top with nut butter and some vegan chocolate chips for a dessert pizza. Maybe something you see in the future.
This crust works well once par cooked on the outdoor grill for a few minutes to crisp it up.
