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.

- 2 cups cooked quinoa
- 2 U eggs

- 1/2 cup summer squash, diced

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a standard muffin tin with cooking spray. Make sure to spray it well so the cheese doesn't stick. You can also make these as mini muffins.
Microwave the zucchini, summer squash, and red pepper in a small container with a few tablespoons of water until soft. You can also saute them until tender.
Combine all the ingredients in a bowl. You can use 2 cups of any toppings you like and substitute those for the zucchini, summer squash, red pepper, and olives.
Press down into the a muffin tin. Bake for 25-30 minutes until golden brown. For mini muffins, bake for 15-20 minutes.
