Gluten Free Veggie and Cheese Pizza with Quinoa Salad Recipe

Tonight I was craving some pizza and luckily I bought some gluten free mini pizza crust from Whole Foods.  I added some tomato sauce (just regular canned tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, spinach, tomatoes, and some broccoli.  I also made a side salad with quinoa (for added protein) and a delicious spicy mustard dressing.  It was delicious, minus any guilt.
