Quinoa Pizza Bites

Melty, cheesy, savory homemade quinoa pizza bites that are the PERFECT meal!

These are PIZZA in a healthier lower point and calorie option! Makes a GREAT snack or meal!

Full recipe in video below


  • 1 cup cooked quinoa

  • 1 cup canned or cooked pinto beans

  • 1/2 cup tomato paste

  • 2 tsp dried basil

  • 1/2 tsp onion powder

  • 1/2 tsp garlic

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1 tsp sweetener of choice

  • optional light shredded mozzarella cheese (vegan brands work too!)

Preheat oven to 350 F and grease a baking sheet well, then set aside. In a medium bowl, mash the beans completely. Stir in all remaining ingredients. Taste, then add a little more sweetener only if needed. (Mine didn’t need it.) Roll into balls, then break off a piece of the cheese—if using—and push it into the middle before sealing the ball back up. Place the balls onto the baking tray and cook 30 minutes. For a crispy outer shell, feel free to broil a minute at the end.
