cassava flour gluten-free pizza crust recipe (vegan and paleo)

5 from 1 reviews

A gluten-free pizza crust made with cassava flour and flavored with dried garlic + oregano herbs. Can be made vegan by using a flax egg or paleo by using cage-free egg. Holds up well as a pizza crust – does not break or fall apart when toppings/sauces are added.

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 cup cassava flour (100g)
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour (31g)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoon dried garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 4 tablespoons coconut oil or olive oil (45g)
  • 1 flax egg (1 tbs flax meal plus 3 tablespoons) OR one regular egg
  • 1/4 cup of water + 1 tablespoon (70g)**

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. 
  2. If you’re keeping this crust vegan – make your flax egg by mixing 1 tablespoon of ground flax seeds (also known as flax meal) with 3 tablespoons of water. Set it aside for a few minutes so that it has time to thicken.
  3. In the meantime, add all the dry ingredients to a large mixing bowl and combine. Then add oil, water, and flax egg (or one regular egg) and mix to form a dough. My measurements are pretty accurate but your experience may vary. If you’re dough feels too dry (it is crumbly and falling apart) then add a little bit more water (like one tablespoon at a time). If it feels too wet – add a little bit more flour.
  4. Once you have your dough formed, roll it out in between two pieces of parchment paper to form a round crust about 10 inches in diameter. Transfer parchment paper with crust to a baking sheet and bake at 350F for 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from oven and add your favorite pizza toppings. I always top my crust with this delicious cashew cheese, sliced red onions, arugula, and sometimes some feta cheese if I’m feeling extra! I also like to pop my finished pizza back in the oven for about 10 minutes to allow the cheeses to melt and the crust holds up really well to this re-heating.

Notes

  • This pizza can be made both vegan and/or paleo. To keep it vegan use a flax egg. You can also use a regular egg for non-vegan paleo version. Both versions have been tested and work just fine.
  • For vegan pizza using flax egg – depending on the consistency of your flax egg, you might have to add another tablespoon of water to the dough. If the dough feels very crumbly and is not holding together, then add more water one tablespoon at a time until the dough feels soft and holds together. It should not be falling apart.
