GF DF Yucca Pizza Dough

This Yucca Pizza Dough is my favourite! Typically gluten free pizza dough is made with potatoes so I thought I would try a new recipe that is a different starch. Yucca is also known as cassava or mogo. It is a tuberous starch that comes from South America and is used it a variety of autoimmune paleo diets.
