Instructions

Instructions are for 6 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Fry onion and garlic in butter or olive oil over medium heat for a few minutes, until the onion is soft. Add the ground beef and keep frying. Add oregano or basil and add salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Add tomato paste, pesto or ajvar relish – use what you have on hand. Add water. Lower the heat and let simmer for at least 20 minutes. While the meat simmers, make the dough for the crust.
  4. Mix all the dough ingredients in a food processor for a few minutes until the dough turns into a ball. If you don’t have a food processor, you can mix by hand with a fork.
  5. Place a round piece of parchment paper in a well-greased springform pan—about 10 inches in diameter—to make it easier to remove the pie when it’s done. (You can also use a deep-dish pie pan.) Spread the dough in the pan and up along the sides. Use a spatula or well-greased fingers.
  6. Pre-bake the crust for 10-15 minutes. Take it out of the oven and place the meat in the crust. Mix cottage cheese and shredded cheese together, and layer on top of the pie.
  7. Bake for 30-40 minutes on lower rack or until the pie has turned a golden color.
  8. Serve with a fresh green salad and dressing.

Tip!

This is an easily worked dairy-free pie crust. Here, we have filled it with meat and a cover of cottage cheese and cheese, but you can use any filling you like!

    This pie is amazing! The ingredients for the filling were so simple that I never imagined it would taste so good. And the crust, in my opinion, is a work of genius. I've tried a few grain free pie crusts and this is the best one I've ever had. I think I even would have preferred this crust to a proper pastry back when I was eating high carb! This is the first grain free pie crust I've made that is nice and savoury, with no overpowering taste of coconut coming through. Will make this over and over again!

    Is there a substitute for almond flour? Allergic to nuts! 🙊

  3. Hi Antonette!

    You can try this:

    "A common question is whether you can substitute almond flour for coconut flour and the other way around. Yes, often you can but not in equal amounts. 1 cup of almond flour can be substituted for 1/3 cup of coconut flour. 1/3 cup of coconut flour can be substituted for 2/3 cup almond flour + 1.5 tablespoons of ground psyllium husk powder. The amounts may need to be adjusted depending on what brands you’re using."

    Good luck! :)

    Are you sure on this? Because if your numbers are correct, that would mean that 1 serving has 118g of fat...

    I know you don't like to count macros, I get it...but that doesn't change the fact that for anyone who does, one serving of this (which, by the way, is very good) has a ton of fat in it...for me it makes up more than 75% of my daily intake. This certainly limits things for the rest of the day.

    I focus on protein first and then fill up on fat so I can make sure not to lose muscle.

  5. Hi Andrew!

    According to my calculations it will be:

    (%FAT / %CARB) * 4/9 * gram_CARB = gram_FAT

    (71 / 3) * 4/9 * 5 = 53 gram fat

    Are you sure on this? Because if your numbers are correct, that would mean that 1 serving has 118g of fat...

    Hi,
    Can you add the recipe amounts back? There is only a list of the ingredients in the meat section, and not what amounts to add in. Thanks.
  7. Linda
    Great idea about splitting the dry crust ingredients! Thanks

    I've made this a few times. Very good!

    I made this today. Since I am a vertarian, I used smoked tofu instead of beef. It turned out really good

    did anyone else have their dough turn purple?? Overworked? Overcooked? It also puffed up when I par baked it.

    Some psyllium husk fibers will turn purple when baked. It's fine to eat, and doesn't alter the taste.

    how much is typically 1 serving on a ketogenic diet?

    I can definitely add myself to the list of people that loved this pie. I will make this again but I plan on modifying it by either adding pureed tomatoes into it or topping it with them, after baking, and replacing the ground beef with ground turkey. I have also thought of doing a low carb turkey chili in place of the meat part, I think that would taste fantastic. This is a must try.
