Quinoa pizza without flour: gluten free and lightly baked

There are many people who struggle with gluten intolerance. Flour and flour products such as bread and pasta, which others take as part of daily life, should be removed from the menu. Pizza also cannot go normally, because the dough is also made of flour. Thanks to this quinoa pizza, anyone who goes wheat-free can still enjoy it in an Italian oven.

The preparation is not as complicated as you think. Some may dare to try this quinoa pizza because they don’t have to be afraid of yeast dough (the fear is completely unfounded, by the way). If you have a little more time, soak the quinoa in cold water overnight. In the medicine, we chose the difference of lightning and we pour boiling water on the false-grain. Then it should still be washed for at least 30 minutes, but at least an hour is better.

Before we explain what quinoa and gluten are all about, we’ll show you two delicious pizzas from EAT CLUB Trattoria.

For anyone wondering what exactly gluten is, we want to quickly shed some light on the dark side. Gluten is called an adhesive protein and acts as a binder. It contains one dough for pizza and pasta together. People with celiac disease, i.e. gluten intolerance, have a faulty immune response to this substance. The result: indigestion, fatigue and other symptoms occur. Thanks to our quinoa pizza, that’s no longer the case. Quinoa is not a true grain, but a so-called false grain, not a sweet grass.
