3 Popular Uses For Frozen Cassava
1. Make your own gluten-free, grain-free pizza crust with our frozen cassava dough at Gemini Foods. If you’re living the paleo lifestyle and having a difficult time finding diversity in the grocery store, try cassava dough as an alternative. Cassava is a much more affordable product compared with coconut and almond flour, and has a wonderful flavor that is ideal for pizza crusts or flatbread.
Add 1 tablespoon of yeast to 1 cup of cassava dough; let set for 5 minutes. Spread out the dough to a thickness of about ¼ inch on a pizza pan, allow to rise for 30 minutes, then bake at 350 degrees for about 13 minutes. Top with alfredo or classic pizza sauce, feta or shredded mozzerella, olives, fresh tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms, or your family’s favorite toppings. Bake at 400 degrees until the crust is golden. Turn on the broiler for a minute or two to bubble the cheese.
2. Frozen cassava dough makes excellent tortillas. Set aside one cup of cassava dough, then measure two tablespoons of psyllium husk powder and ¼ cup of hot water in a large mixing bowl. Once the psyllium has absorbed the water, add the cassava dough and the psyllium to a high-powered kitchen mixer, incorporating the ingredients well, or knead by hand for at least 2 minutes. Press in an electric tortilla maker or roll out by hand and cook in a medium hot skillet for two minutes on each side.
Cassava tortillas can be used in place of any recipe calling for flour tortillas; they’re a healthy substitute for plain white flour tortillas that contain inferior ingredients.
3. Pre-cook hot dogs and wrap each in a 3” x 4” rectangle of cassava dough. Baste with olive oil and sprinkle with pepper and sesame seeds. Bake in a pre-heated 350 oven for 15 minutes, keeping a close eye on them at the 10 minute mark to prevent over-browning.
