Quinoa Pizza Bites

I’ve been looking at various recipes that can be made with quinoa instead of just the typical recipes that replace rice.  This recipe from Fit for Success caught my attention so I thought I’d give it a shot.  I’m so glad I did!  It was a delicious, easy, AND healthy snack (or appetizer) and only takes a few minutes to make.  Serve with a little pizza sauce for dipping this recipe was a big hit!
