    Very good tasting but a bit less crispy in the center. I would use a 10 or 12 inch springform cake pan and finish the baking with toppings on a pizza pan with holes.

    Didn’t really taste of anything , used it as a side dish to a vegetarian curry. Mine came out quite soft very nice texture slightly harder than a pancake I also make this with quinoa flakes, oats and chia seeds as I find quinoa expensive and didn’t want to use to much Additionally, I put every thing in the blender and saved 8 hours with the flakes.

    Simple to make, though neither husband nor kids liked it. I found it surprisingly tasty and will likely make again to use as a flatbread with veggies, hummus, etc. Like another reviewer mentioned, a bullet-style blender works in place of a food processor.

    This pizza turned out ALOT better then I expected! It had the perfect texture and held up super well; it was crispy and super delicious. Topped with a homemade Greek yogurt pesto, Parmesan cheese, arugula, caramelized onions, and goat cheese. If you like quinoa, you'll love this!

    I was really surprised at how well it turned out. I will definitely be doing his again. I didn't use parchment paper so it was a bit difficult to flip and instead of using a food processor I used a "bullet" which worked out perfectly.

    So happy with the result! I baked it in a casserole pan & it held together beautifully! Will make again and try to flatten it out some more.
