Ingredients

LARGE PIZZA CRUST:

  • 1 cup yuca cassava, boiled and mashed
  • ΒΌ cup light olive oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt optional
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon coconut flour sifted
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder

PERSONAL PIZZA CRUST:

  • 1/2 cup yuca cassava, boiled and mashed
  • 2 tablespoons light olive oil
  • dash of sea salt optional
  • 2 teaspoons coconut flour sifted
  • 1/8 teaspoons baking powder

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F,
  2. Peel the yuca and cut into chunks.
  3. Boil the yuca for 15-20 minutes, or until very fork tender.**
  4. Mash the yuca in a bowl with the olive oil, use a hand blender or food processor for best consistency (should be smooth and sticky, no lumps).
  5. In a small bowl mix the coconut flour, baking soda and salt.
  6. Mix the dry ingredients thoroughly into the mashed yuca and form a ball (will be sticky!).
  7. Place the ball of dough on a parchment-lined baking sheet, and place another piece of parchment on top.
  8. Use your hands to smooth out the dough until it's about 1/8" think or less. (very important to get it very thin to ensure crispiness. Dough should be somewhat transparent when it's thin enough.)
  9. Remove the top sheet of parchment and place in the oven.
  10. The large crust will cook for 15-20 minutes and the personal-sized crust for about 10 minutes, or until golden brown. I baked it on the middle rack then moved it one rack lower the last few minutes.
  11. Remove the crust, add toppings such as tomato sauce, pastured-raised cheese (if you eat dairy), veggies and/or meat.
  12. Place back into the oven for a few minutes until toppings are cooked to desired temperature.
  13. **note: make sure to drain yuca well before mashing to ensure dough isn't too wet, and mash while it's hot otherwise dough isn't easy to work with.
