The crusts are easy to make but you do have to soak the quinoa in advance so I usually bake a batch and freeze most before putting on any toppings and cook from frozen.
If you are running short of time you can quick soak the quinoa by placing in a pan with water, bringing to a boil and then turning off the heat and waiting an hour.
It may not go gooey and runny like dairy cheese but it melts and gets a delicious toasted flavour. Use a high fat vegan cheese to get a runny melty cheese pizza, but these are often full of unhealthy fats.

Quinoa is naturally gluten free so it’s generally suitable for people with celiac disease. However it has compounds that are similar to gluten so a small number of people with gluten intolerances have issues with quinoa also,
