Quinoa pizza bites are the perfect snack for kids and adults. The gluten-free appetizer is both delicious and healthy.

Pizza bites are a common snack that is adored by the younger generation. While the tasty treat is usually sold frozen and cooked in the microwave, this recipe utilizes fresh and minimal ingredients to revamp the classic dish.

Unlike the usual batch of pizza bites, this recipe offers a quinoa base for a healthier snack. Served in miniature muffin cups, these tasty bites feature a layer of quinoa that is topped with pepperoni, mushrooms and black olives along with red onions and shredded mozzarella cheese. Served alone or with a side of Parmesan pizza sauce, quinoa pizza bites are a superfood snack that you won't feel guilty about indulging in.
