I love pizza!

Let’s be honest, who doesn’t? While Italian in origin, pizza is truly the quintessential American comfort, convenience food. But the convenience comes at a cost…Pizza inherently doesn’t provide much in the way of nutrients, and for many there’s the added “cost” of bloating and discomfort from delivered “pizza in a box.”

Given my quinoa and pizza obsession, it just makes good sense to put the two together, especially when there’s no guilt, only plants full of nutrients, totally vegan, and all the tastes of a marinara pizza.



  • 1-1/2 cups beans (15 oz can) white cannelini, great northern, or red kidney work best
  • 1-1/2 cups golden quinoa (prepared according to package directions)
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 1 tsp Italian Seasonings
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp garlic
  • 1/2 tsp oregano, dried
  • 1/2 tsp basil, dried
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • organic canola oil (olive oil may be used but burns easily. Only use organic canola, since this is a crop highly treated with glyphosate)
