You are guaranteed to be the hit of any party to which you bring these addictively delicious quinoa pizza bites.

Although… if you want to make extra sure people will never forget you, you can always bring a batch of my No-Bake Peanut Butter Brownie Bars as well.

But for now, let’s go back to the melty, cheesy, and pizza-y quinoa bites.

Pizza-y?

These Quinoa Pizza Bites Can Be:

Portable

Easy-to-make

Vegan

Gluten-free

Sugar-free

And surprisingly pizza-y. If it’s not a real word, it should be.

The idea for these pizza balls was sent to me by a reader. Inspired by her recipe, I then went ahead and changed it up completely… I can’t seem to follow a recipe!

The resulting quinoa pizza bites were fabulously pizza-y.

Webster’s, take note.

Quinoa Pizza Bites

Yield: Makes 8-10
Print This Recipe 4.8/5

Ingredients

  • 1 cup cooked quinoa (see: How to Cook Quinoa)
  • 1 cup canned (or cooked) pinto beans
  • 1/2 cup tomato paste
  • 2 tsp dry basil
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar of choice, or pinch stevia (this is for balance and can be left out if you absolutely must)
  • mozzarella cheese of choice, such as Daiya, optional

Instructions

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.

Are you doing anything for Super Bowl?

Do you have any recipes picked out to make? I’m currently trying to decide between a chocolate chip peanut butter cheese ball and chocolate chip cookie dough brownies. Or maybe I’ll just make both!
