Pear and Bacon Quinoa Pizza



  • 1 1/3 cups all purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup quinoa flour (I used a Krups coffee grinder to mill the quinoa into flour)
  • 1 tablespoon active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 3/4 cup hot tap water
  • 2 tablespoons Arbosana Olive Oil, plus more for brushing dough
  • 2 pear, sliced thin
  • 8 canadian bacon rounds, sliced into thin strips
  • 1/2 cup Manchego cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup Pepperjack cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded.
  • Preparation:
    1. 1 Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and sprinkle with a little cornmeal. Set aside. Mix the 3 cheeses together in a small bowl. Set aside.
    2. 2 In the bowl of a food processor, add the flour, quinoa flour, yeast, salt and sugar. Pulse a couple times to combine. Add the water and olive oil to a glass measure and with the processor running, pour through the feed tube. Allow the dough to process for 1 minute. Remove the dough to a floured board and cover with a medium bowl. Let rest 10-15 minutes.
    3. 3 Divide dough into 4 and roll or pat each ball into a circle. Place on the prepared baking sheets. Brush with olive oil and add the pear, bacon and cheese blend. Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until the crust is done to your liking. Depending on your oven, you may need to rotate the baking sheets once during cooking.
    4. Makes 4 personal sized pizzas.
