These Quinoa Pizza Bites were one of the very first recipes I posted on my blog back in 2013. They needed a major refresh and some new photos. Back then, no one even knew how to pronounce quinoa!

I added more “pizza toppings” this time for more flavor and a pop of color. These healthy pizza bites are the perfect alternative to frozen pizza bagels and pizza pockets. You can pack them in your lunch (or your kids lunch!) or have them as an afternoon snack to keep you fueled for the rest of the day. Feel free to swap out any of the toppings you don’t enjoy or add more. I also think they make a great appetizer to have sitting out when you have friends over.

Make sure you choose a no nonsense marinara sauce. They aren’t hard to find, you just have to look at the ingredients list. If you were making a pizza sauce and you wouldn’t put that ingredient in it, put that jar back on the shelf.
