Quinoa Sloppy Joes Pizza with Rye Crust, Orange slices, Jalapeno Aioli. vegan recipe

Print Friendly and PDF
Vegan Pizza Mofo Post 15.
I made a list of pizzas to make during the month. It wasnt a long one, but it had a few on the definitely make list, one of which was the Mac and cheese Pizza and the next was the Sloppy joes. Behold the Lentil free sloppy joes. These sloppy joes are inspired by Seattle's Plum Bistro's Quinoa Burger, which has all the similar toppings plus some caramelized onions. That is one burger where all the toppings, dressing and the spices work very well together. Now if only I had known about the cooking class with Plum's chef on 20th, I would have probably found out the secret recipe and made the real deal:)

This sloppy quinoa stew is not exactly the same, but is super super delicious in any way you want to eat it. On this crust, in a burger, as a side.. mmm mmmmm



My birthday was fun. Work free time with hubbs. Breakfast of ginger molasses french toasts by hubbs, burgers and wraps from Sage(now called Plum) Cafe at Cap hill, a long drive with great music and fall colors, dark chocolate cakes from Hot cakes in Ballard and a light dinner of Aloo Gobhi (Spiced Potatoes and cauliflower) and Daal by hubbs. I did not cook anything :)



The crust on the post is Rye wheat crust. The dark crust went well with the moody joes. That is crust number 13! You can use any of the earlier 12 crusts(regular wheat or glutenfree options) as well. See the Collection here

You can also make the sloppy stew with a combination of quinoa and millet. Or use cooked lentils or make some sloppy chickpeas like Kristy's here. the Quinoa stew and jalapeno aioli are glutenfree.

Smoky and spicy stew with the citrusy sweet orange, spicy and cool Jalapeno Aioli. You must make this!

and cook uncovered on low-medium heat for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally until the mixture gets dry.




Add the washed quinoa and water and mix well.




Cook partially covered until quinoa is cooked and mixture is a thick and sloppy but not watery.

For the crust, In a bowl, add warm water, sugar, yeast and mix well. Let sit for 10 minutes until frothy.
Add the flours, salt, cocoa powder and evoo and knead for a minute or mix with a large spoon to combine well into a dough.
Spray water on the dough, Cover the bowl with a towel and let sit for 1.5 hours.
Add 2 Tablespoons of bread flour to the dough, oil your hands and gather and knead for 2 minutes.
Roll the dough out to a 10-12 inch crust.



Top the dough with some daiya mozzarella(optional).

Then top liberally with the Quinoa mixture.
Spread evenly, and top with orange slices.



Bake in preheated oven at 410 degrees F for 14 minutes.

Broil on Lo for half a minute.
Take the Pizza out, drizzle the Jalapeno aioli on top and sprinkle liberal amount of chopped cilantro.



Sweet, spicy, smoky!

  10. While the whole assembled pizza does look fantastic, I can easily see myself just making the sloppy joe portion and being perfectly happy! In fact, I might already be plotting to put it on tonight's dinner menu... Time will tell if I still feel semi-ambitious in so many hours. ;)

    I'm so glad to hear that you had a good birthday! :-)
