Happy Friday! We've been having the most wild thunder and lightening storms here in the Mid-West and I'm really loving it. I have never experienced storms like the ones that have been rolling through here. But of course, when the weather gets crazy and the days turn dark, I love to get in the kitchen and cook up some new recipes.
Since it's still Summer, even when it's pouring out, the air is still super warm. I try to make dishes that don't take up too much oven time so the house doesn't heat up. I love experimenting with pizza crusts and doughs, and mixing flavors for that ultimate pizza. With that said, I've been cooking with quinoa a lot lately and adding it to everything. So instead of making a quinoa crusted pizza, I thought I'd just use it as a topping and have a Greek inspired pizza. And can I just say, it turned out so darn good!
What you'll need:
- Pizza crust, I used Pillsbury Thin Crust Pizza Crust
- 1 cup cooked Quinoa
- 1/2 cup feta cheese crumbles
- 1 1/2 cups cut yellow pepper
- 1/4 cup Greek Dressing
- 1/2 fresh grated Parmesan cheese
What you'll do:
- In a mixing bowl, mix together cooked quinoa, feta cheese crumbles, yellow pepper cuts, and Greek dressing until all are combined.
- Prepare pizza dough according to the directions *some ask you to precook the crust.
- When the crust is ready, spread feta mix evenly over the crust.
- Sprinkle the grated Parmesan cheese over the whole pizza.
- Cook at 400 degrees for 10 minutes or until the top starts to brown.
- Remove and let sit for 5 minutes.
How often do you cook with quinoa? Do you like experimenting with Pizza recipes? And if you try this recipe, I'd love to know how you liked it!
