AIP Cassava Flatbread/Crackers/Pizza Crust

WOW, I found this recipe and what a diverse recipe it is. You can make a flatbread, crackers, or a pizza shell out of this recipe just by adjusting the baking time. The original recipe comes from the unskilled cavewoman and I couldn’t be more thankful.

Aip Cassava Flatbread/Crackers/Pizza Crust

What an easy and diverse recipe for flatbread, crackers, and/or pizza.

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups cassava flour
  • 1/2 tsp Himalayan salt
  • 1/3 cup avocado oil
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 Tb olive oil

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 450 F.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, add cassava flour and salt. Stir well with a fork to combine.
  3. Drizzle in avocado oil and stir gently into flour mixture until it looks crumbly.
  4. Drizzle in 1/2 of the water and stir until it starts to come together.
  5. Add the remaining water and stir well until dough is even and smooth.
  6. Allow to rest for 10 minutes to absorb the liquid and fully expand.
  7. Knead the dough a bit, and if it crumbles at all, stir in a little more water and knead again.

  8. The dough should be barely sticky to the touch. If it seems too dry you can add in a little bit more water and knead again.
  9. Form the dough into a loose ball.
  10. Lay down a dampened paper or kitchen towel on your work surface.
  11. On top of that, lay down a large piece of parchment and place the dough ball in the center.
  12. Flatten the ball slightly into a square-ish shape, then lay another piece of parchment over the top.
  13. Use a rolling pin to flatten to 1/8" thickness. Rolling it too thin will make cracks when you remove the top piece of parchment in the next step.
  14. Place parchment package on the baking sheet, then carefully peel off the top layer.
  15. Make several gentle fork pricks into the dough, then drizzle with 1 Tb of olive oil.
  16. For soft, fold-able flatbread, bake for 10 minutes, then flip and bake for another 10 minutes or until edges are just barely dried out and gently golden brown.
  17. For a chewy-crisp cracker, after flipping the bread after the first 10 minutes, drizzle with more oil and salt, and bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until edges and top are gently browned and crisp.

Recipe Notes

Try this topped with olives, smoked sea salt, rosemary and roasted garlic before baking the second side!

If using this as a base for pizza, bake for 7 minutes on each side, then top with desired toppings, and bake for 7 to 10 minutes more or until toppings are cooked to your liking.

It is normal for cassava goodies to have a slightly translucent appearance.
