These Quinoa Pizza Bites may become your favorite healthy snack or quick meal. You'll be amazed at how quickly kids scarf down these yummy little bites.

Lately I have been wanting to "pizza-fy" everything. Chicken can easily become pizza with some marinara sauce, cheese, and toppings. Eggs, no challenge there, they make the perfect crust for a pizza frittata. So of course I had to make more pizza treats like this quinoa pizza bites. Packed with healthy quinoa and veggies, your family will never guess that they are good for them. Make them with any toppings you like and have a snack or meal that everyone will love.
