There’s truly nothing better than a classic gluten-filled pizza, but sometimes it’s nice to eat something a little healthier and lighter, too. There’s where this absolutely delicious gluten-free cassava flatbread comes in!

The first time I made flatbread I was a little intimidated, but don’t worry, this recipe is super easy!

If you’re looking for a date night activity at home, making these personalized flatbreads is so fun. Cole and I had a little pizza night where we each made our own personal flatbreads with whatever toppings we wanted. Then while we ate we watched a good Netflix documentary and it was the perfect night. Highly recommend!

I decided to top mine with Whole Foods 365 Marinara Sauce, pasture-raised/ grass-fed/organic ground beef, and Miyoko’s mozzarella (my favorite dairy-free cheese!). Then after I took it out of the oven, I added fresh basil and arugula. It totally hit the spot.

The flatbread ends up being about 10 inches in diameter. It’s perfect for a filling, single serving. This would also be a fantastic appetizer to have when friends are over.

As you might have noticed, this recipe includes cassava flour, one of my favorite gluten-free flours. I personally really enjoy the taste and I love to cook and bake with it. However, I’ve noticed it’s harder to find organic cassava flours at the grocery store. If that’s important to you, this one and this one are ones I’ve found on Amazon.

If you’re looking for more cassava recipes, I’m in love with these Cinnamon Apple Cassava Pancakes. They’re very clean, tasty, and super thick, too.

Ingredients for Gluten-Free Cassava Flatbread:

  • Cassava flour
  • Arrowroot powder – more on this below
  • Sea salt
  • Garlic powder
  • Egg
  • Avocado oil
  • Water

I’m actually pretty new to arrowroot and this is my first recipe using it.

So what is arrowroot?

Arrowroot powder, arrowroot starch, and arrowroot flour are all the same thing. It’s a white powdery starch that’s naturally gluten-free and grain-free. It’s made from extracting the starchy substance from a tropical root plant (Maranta arundinacea). This starch is extracted using a simpler, more traditional method, without the use of high temperatures. It’s mostly used as a thickener, but you can incorporate it in other ways, too.

How to Make Gluten-Free Cassava Flatbread:

This recipe makes one personal pizza, so if you’re looking to make more, then make sure you take that into account!

Start by preheating your oven to 425°F and place a baking sheet in the oven. Mix the dry ingredients together into a bowl, then add the wet and mix again.

Let the mix sit for 5 minutes as it will thicken up a little bit. Your dough will be wet still and that is normal!

Now add a little bit of avocado oil to your hands (or other oil), pick up the dough as best you can, and spread it out into a 10-inch pizza crust on a piece of parchment paper. This process usually takes me up to 5 minutes since it can be a little difficult to spread.

Now take the hot baking sheet out of the oven, slide the parchment paper on top, and place it in the oven to bake for about 12-14 minutes.

Once the flatbread has baked, add whatever toppings your desire and pop it back in the oven for a few more minutes until it’s ready. If I decide to add cheese or vegan cheese, I also like cooking the flatbread with a few minutes on broil since it melts the cheese perfectly.

Let cool a little, slice, and enjoy!
