Yield: 24 mini pizza bites
 
Ingredients
  • 2 cups cooked quinoa (1/2 cup dry should yield about 2 cups cooked)
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup packed (65g) shredded mozza cheese (I used a lactose-free cheese)
  • ½ cup turkey pepperoni, thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
For the Garnish:
  • Marinara sauce (I used Newman's Own Marinara). Could also make your own with crushed tomato and your favorite spices.
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the cooled quinoa and all the other ingredients except the marinara sauce.
  3. Lightly spray a mini muffin tin with cooking spray.
  4. Using a tablespoon, put 1 spoonful of the mixture into each mini muffin tin.
  5. Firmly pack the quinoa mixture into the muffin tins.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes or so until firm and lightly golden around the edges.
