Quinoa Pizza Bites

Quinoa Pizza Bites


Nosh and Nourish: Quinoa Pizza Bites


2 packages Large Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
2 cups Cooked Quinoa (I used tri-color)
4 Eggs
1 cup Shredded Italian Cheese (I used an Italian cheese blend, but you could just use mozzarella)
2 teaspoons Minced Garlic
1 cup Diced Zucchini
2 tablespoons Coconut Oil
1 teaspoon Paprika
4 teaspoons Basil
1⁄2 teaspoon Sea Salt
3⁄4 cups Flour (I used white whole wheat flour)
  Pizza Sauce for dipping


*Pepperoni lovers could add 1/4 cup diced pepperoni to the mix before baking. (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spray 2 mini-muffin tins with non-stick spray.
  3. Open up your crescent rolls, unrolling carefully. Press each set of 2 triangles together into one larger rectangle. Use a small cup/glass to cut circles of dough. Press the dough circles into each muffin cup.
  4. Combine all remaining ingredients, except for dipping sauce. 
  5. Fill each dough cup with a spoonful of the quinoa mixture.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes, or until lightly browned.
  7. Serve with pizza sauce for dipping!
