Mind-Blowing Quinoa Pizza Bites for a Healthy Snack

It seems like cauliflower pizza crust is all the rage when it comes to making keto-friendly pizza recipes, but I’m here to tell you that there might just be a better way. These mind-blowing quinoa pizza bites could very well be the next big thing when it comes to keto pizza. They’re certainly my new favorite way to make pizza bites! You can use quinoa in nearly the exact same ways that you would use cauliflower rice for making pizza bites. Just mix some cooked quinoa with shredded mozzarella cheese, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, and egg. After baking your pizza bites in the oven for about 25 minutes, simply add your favorite pizza toppings (I like to go with pepperoni, black olives, and pizza sauce when making these) and prepare to have your mind blown.
