Can I Freeze Quinoa Pizza Crust?

Yes, you can definitely freeze quinoa pizza. It’s actually the most common question you’ll see in the comments as lots of people like to make this ahead.

To freeze your pizza crust:

  1. Just the crust: bake it through to step 5 (no toppings) and freeze it. When you’re ready to cook it, simply add your toppings, pop it in the 425ºF oven and cook it for about 15 – 18 minutes.
  2. Whole pizza: you can also bake your whole pizza and freeze it. To reheat it, simply pop it in the microwave or toaster oven until it’s heated through and the cheese is melty again.

p.s. want to make multiple pizzas or one large one? This recipe can easily be doubled or more!


Need some inspo in the toppings department? Here are some of my favorite combinations:

  • Tomato sauce, cheese + fresh basil
  • Tomato sauce, sliced peppers, vegan sausage, cheese
  • Vegan pesto, cheese, spinach, artichokes
  • Tomato sauce, sliced red onions, sauteed mushrooms, finely chopped kale + cheese

But again, this quinoa pizza crust holds up to ALL your fave toppings. We can’t wait to hear how you top your pizzas – let us know in the comments!

For The Quinoa Crust

  • 3/4 cup Uncooked Quinoa soaked
  • 1/4 cup Water
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil

Optional Pizza Toppings

  • 1/2 cup Tomato Sauce gluten free for GF option
  • 1 cup Shredded Goat Cheese
  • Fresh Herbs
  • Red Pepper Flakes


  • Start by soaking the quinoa. Cover the quinoa with at least 1" of water. Ideally, soak for 6 - 8 hours. If you're in a hurry, use very hot water and soak for at least 30 minutes.
  • Once you're ready to make the crust, preheat the oven to 425ºF. Line a baking pan with parchment paper (either rectangle or square). Spray the entire surface with cooking spray.
  • Thoroughly rinse the soaked quinoa, then add to a blender. Add the 1/4 cup of water, baking powder, salt, and olive oil. Blend on high until smooth and creamy. The batter should resemble a thick pancake batter.
  • Pour batter onto the prepared pan. Spread it out into an even layer, about 1/8" thick (again, either in a circular pan like 9" cake pan OR into a rectangle on a traditional cookie sheet).
  • Bake for 20 minutes, then remove the quinoa pizza crust, flip it directly onto the baking pan (flip and remove the parchment paper from the top side). Return the pizza to the oven baking for another 10 - 15 minutes until it's starting to brown and the edges are crispy.
  • Remove and let cool for a few minutes in the pan, transfer cutting board, and slice. Garnish with herbs, pepper flakes, grated cheese, etc., and serve immediately!
