Easy Low Carb Pie Crust

This Easy Low Carb Pie Crust recipe has just 4 ingredients, takes just minutes to make and it’s perfect for either sweet or savory pies! Add this to your healthy eating plan! 

I was craving a pie. Since neither Mr. Saucy nor I are huge sweets addicts, I was craving a savory pie. And since Mr. Saucy has been doing so well with his low carb lifestyle, I wanted to have a pie crust recipe that was low carb.

This almond flour crust is really, really simple! Just mix almond flour, a bit of salt, melted butter and an egg in a bowl. Nothing fancy. No mixer, no food processor. I stirred it up with a fork!


Then, just press the pie crust into a pie plate, fork poke the bottom so it doesn’t puff up, bake it for 10 minutes and you’re ready to fill it with whatever you want!

I made a Quiche for us for supper; along with a salad, it was a great meal! I’ll be publishing the Quiche recipe tomorrow.

So, try this recipe! Cut the carbs and eat more pie!

  2. In a large bowl, add the almond flour and salt and stir to combine.

About P ~ The Saucy Southerner

I started cooking when I was ten years old. For me, the process of cooking, from inception of a dish, to the execution, to the washing of the pots is sheer delight. I am now retired from a business I still own, in partnership with my husband. I used to work six days a week and still cook every night. Now, I'm gardening, still cooking, always having fun and hoping to share my joy with you. Thank you for reading...and commenting! P~

    Please share the carb count. This is most helpful to insulin pump users and really anyone who is counting daily carbs. Thanks!

    Can you for instance pour a fruit filling into the unbaked crust like you would with a regular pie crust?
