Cassava Flour Pizza

If you’ve been reading Clean Eating Kitchen for awhile, you’ll be familiar with cassava flour (see my recipe for Cassava Flour Chocolate Chip Muffins).

It’s grain-free since it comes from a root, and that makes it naturally gluten-free, too. It has a delicate, light texture and a very neutral flavor. Cassava flour can often be used interchangeably with wheat flour.

For this pizza crust made without grains, gluten, or yeast, cassava flour is the perfect base ingredient. I recommend Otto’s Cassava Flour as the brand that has the best flavor and quality.

Recipe Steps

Once you try making your own pizza dough, you’ll never buy pre-made again. It’s really not that hard, I promise!

Step One

The first step to making your pizza dough is to gather up your ingredients. For the flour base, I used a mixture of cassava flour and arrowroot starch. You’ll notice that I use eggs in this recipe instead of yeast. The eggs give the dough a little lift.

1. Place your flour, arrowroot, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. 2. Add dried oregano. 3. Add eggs. 4. Stir and use your hands to form 1 or 2 dough balls.

Step Two

Once you have your cassava flour dough ready, it’s best to chill it for about an hour in the fridge. This will make it easier to roll out. It’s not 100% necessary that you chill, it but this will make it less likely that the dough will tear when you’re rolling it out.

Once you have chilled the dough, you can then roll it out on a piece of parchment paper and transfer it to a baking sheet. You’ll need some extra flour to keep the dough from sticking.

Step Three

After you’ve rolled out the dough, it’s time to add your toppings. Feel free to get creative! I used sliced salami, roasted broccoli and vegan cheese. This pizza dough would be amazing with my vegan pesto sauce, too!

Step Four

Next, bake your pizza for about 15 minutes.
