My family loves pizza. Before paleo, we loved to have make-you-own-pizza movie nights. Mom would make her famous herbed pizza dough, and then we would all roll out our little circles of dough and top the crusts to our hearts’ desires.
We went through a lot of paleo pizza dough recipes to find one that was up to our standards. Almond flour, coconut flour, cauliflower, meatza, ground chicken; it seemed like we tried all the paleo pizza recipes that we could find on the interwebs. Then we found the pizza crust in Paleo Indulgences by Tammy Credicott. The crust was amazing. But then my dad got diagnosed with an egg allergy, and we were back to square one.
Our next solution was a plantain pizza crust. It was delicious, and didn’t have any eggs, which was really nice. That recipe is in my cookbook!
But… then our local supermarket stopped carrying plantains. *sad face*
Enter cassava flour pizza crust. You guys know by now how much I love cassava flour and how many recipes I make with it, and this recipe is no exception. I made this recipe before I went to work one day, sampled it, and then told my brother he could eat some of it for lunch. I came home and asked my mother how she had liked the pizza I made. Her response was, “What pizza?” My brother had eaten the entire pizza!
This cassava flour pizza crust is a nice thin crust that is crispy on the edges. It’s egg-free. nut-free, grain-free, and dairy-free, but you would never know it! Next time we have pizza movie night, this is the recipe I will make. I topped mine with tomato sauce and cheese, but if you are AIP, I would recommend using No-Mato Sauce from He Won’t Know It’s Paleo and lots of meat and veggies!
