Tips

I’ve partnered with Knorr® to let you know what I think about Fiesta Sides™. As always, all opinions are my own.

 

Recipe Notes:

Rotisserie chicken works great in this recipe.

Use your favorite salsa, or fire roasted tomatoes with green chilies.

Cheddar or pepper jack cheese can be substituted for the colby-jack.

Because of the high oven temperature, olive oil is not recommended for brushing the tortillas.

Grilled Cassava Flour Pizza Crust

 

Grilled paleo pizza that is super fun and an interactive meal. Top with your favorite toppings.

Prep: 15 mins
Cook: 7 mins
Additional: 5 mins
Total: 27 mins
Servings: 4
Yield: 4 4-inch pizza crusts

INGREDIENTS

 

DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly grease the grate.

  • Mix water, coconut sugar, and yeast in a measuring cup until well combined. Let stand until yeast softens and begins to form a creamy foam, about 5 minutes. Add avocado oil, salt, and Italian seasoning; stir well.

  • Combine cassava flour, arrowroot powder, and gelatin in a bowl. Pour in yeast mixture; stir with a wooden spoon until well combined. Add more cassava flour as needed, 1 tablespoon at a time, until a dough forms.

  • Divide dough into 4 equal portions; knead and shape into balls. Dust a piece of parchment paper with arrowroot powder; place 1 dough ball on top and generously dust the top. Cover with another piece of parchment paper; roll out into a 4-inch pizza crust. Repeat this step with remaining dough balls.

  • Remove top parchment paper. Grease top of each crust with coconut cooking spray; flip and place crusts on the grill, greased-size down. Cook until golden brown, about 7 minutes.
