Cassava Flour Pizza Crust - Paleo, Yeast Free


2-1/4 Cups Cassava Flour (by volume)

1-1/3 Cup Arrowroot Flour (by volume)

2 Eggs

1 Cup Warm Water

½ Cup Olive Oil

1-1/2 Tsp Salt

1 Tsp Garlic Powder

1 Tsp Oregano


Preparation: Thoroughly mix the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Separately, mix the wet ingredients well including the yolks. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients in parts until well mixed and then let sit for about 10 minutes. Place the dough on parchment paper (you’ll need it big enough to hold a 14” - 16" pizza crust. The dough should be sticky. If not add some additional oil and/or an egg until you get the right consistency. Place a second piece of parchment paper on top and roll into a circular shape taking any pieces and rolling them back in. Remove the top piece by peeling away and place a  pizza pan sprayed with olive oil in its place. Carefully turn over so the parchment paper is now on top and then remove it by peeling away.   Preheat an oven to 425F.

Baking: Place the crust in the preheated oven and bake for about 14-16 minutes until the crust has turned golden (this crust is thicker so that’s why this part takes a little longer). Remove and place toppings and return to the oven to bake for about 7-8 minutes until the crust is browned at the edges and the topping is melted as well (if using cheese or vegan substitute to your preference). Let cool a little and slice into 8 pieces. This is a fun, easy recipe. Try using pizza sauce, sauteed mushrooms and mozzarella cheese. In the pictures, we used sliced, sauteed portabella mushrooms, sliced baby tomatoes and feta cheese.

You can also split the dough ball to make a 10" personal pan pizza - just monitor as you bake as the smaller pizza won't take as long. If you make two 10" pizzas, the cook time should be about the same. If you only want 1 personal pan, take the other half and refrigerate for up to 2 days - make sure it's room temperature before you bake it.
