  3. Lightly spray a mini muffin tin pan with cooking spray. Invite kids to help press mixture into each muffin tin. Bake for 10 minutes or until turning golden.
  4. Remove from oven and invite kids to sprinkle Colby Jack cheese over the quinoa pizzas as well as the additional toppings such as veggies and/or meat if desired. Return to oven for 30 seconds or until cheese is melted. Cool slightly and serve with additional pizza sauce. Refrigerate any uneaten portion and discard after 4 days.
