It's almost too good to be true! A gluten free, grain free pizza base. And all it needs are 2 ingredients - steamed tapioca (yuca) and some butter.
Take the steamed tapioca, and add about a tablespoon of butter. Blend it up till it forms a cohesive ball. I find that warm tapioca straight out the steamer forms a better dough. Something about the gooey starches on the surface of the tapioca will help them stick together. Add salt if you like.
As you handle the tapioca dough, you might notice little fibers in your dough. Pick them up and discard.
And if you find the dough to be sticking too much, you can always dust a little bit of flour to help roll it out. To keep it grain free, I am using tapioca flour here, but feel free to use whatever flour u have on hands.
Next i slid these pizza crusts onto a frying pan, just to give a bit of color and to crisp up the surface.
Then top it with whatever you might top a pizza with. Keeping up with the spiderweb pizza, i made mummy pizzas.
It is after all two more days to Halloween!
