Quinoa Pizza Bites

I wasn't expecting this to be such a hit but we all seemed to love it!  This is definitely a healthy alternative to getting that yummy pizza flavor.  We will be adding this to our dinner rotation but I will most likely need to double the recipe to have plenty for my family of six. 

1 cup uncooked quinoa  
2 large eggs  
1/2 cup chopped onion  
1 cup shredded mozzarella  
2 cloves minced garlic  
1 Tbsp dried basil  
1 Tbsp dried oregano  
1 tsp salt  
1 cup chopped pepperoni  
1/8 tsp red pepper flake  
1 jar of your favorite marinara sauce

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Cook the quinoa and 2 cups water in a medium saucepan.  Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat to low.  Let is simmer for 15-20 minutes.  Combine all other ingredients (except marinara sauce) in a mixing bowl and stir.  Spray muffin tins with cooking spray.  Drop a heaping tablespoon into each tin.  Bake for 15-20 minutes.  Serve with warm marinara for dipping.
