How to make sweet and savoury pie crusts

How you plan on using the crust will determine if you want a sweet pie crust or savoury pie crust. If you are baking a quiche you can easily make this crust savoury by adding a little salt, herbs, and seasoning to the keto dough. 

However, if you want to make a sweet keto dessert recipe such as berry pie, no-bake cheesecake, or chocolate pumpkin pie you would want to make your crust sweet to match the pie filling.

To make the low-carb pie crust sweet, simply omit the salt from the recipe and replace it with your favourite powdered sweetener or sugar replacement.

Top Tip: Using a liquid sweetener will make your pie crust too sticky to work with.

Coconut flour pie crust is very simple to make with 4 simple low-carb ingredients. You will need coconut flour, cold butter, two eggs, and salt/sweetener.

The cold butter is essential to get a firmer, more flakey pie crust texture. If you use melted butter to make your crust your crust will be chewy rather than crunchy.

I have found the easiest way to mix the cold butter into the coconut flour is by using a food processor or blender. A food processor is not necessary, but making pie crust is a lot easier and faster with it. 

To make the dough, simply toss the ingredients into a food processor for about 30 seconds to a minute until the dough forms little balls. Then scoop the dough into a zip bag, roll into a ball, and let chill for 15-20 minutes. This will allow the dough to firm up a bit.

Pulse or blend until find crumbs appear.


When the dough is done chilling in the fridge, press the dough into your pie pan using the palm of your hand. You will want to work the crust from the middle out toward the edges.

Poke a few holes at the bottom of the crust with a fork, then make a pattern with the fork around the edges. This encourages the pie crust to bake evenly and go crispy.

Now your crust is ready to bake. If you are making a pie that needs to bake you can add the filling to the crust and bake according to the pie directions.

However, if you are making a no-bake pie like this low-carb berry cheesecake you will want to bake the crust at 400 degrees F/200 degrees C for 10-12 minutes. To ensure the edges of your crust do not get too crisp or burn, I like to cover my edges with a bit of aluminium foil.


If you prefer to leave out the butter and make a dairy-free pie crust, you can substitute 57 grams (1/4 cup) coconut oil instead. The consistency of coconut oil is a bit looser, so you won’t need as much. If you mix the dough together and it is too dry add a bit more coconut oil a spoonful at a time.

You cannot directly substitute coconut flour for almond flour because these are two completely different low-carb flours, but you can make an almond flour pie crust recipe instead.

Freezing guide

This simple gluten-free pie crust is also perfect for freezing. The crust can be frozen directly in the pie pan for up to 6 months. Be sure to wrap the pan tightly with foil, then place the crust in a freezer bag or airtight container to keep it fresh for longer.

The crust can be frozen baked or unbaked. You are going to love this crust.

    I love this nut free crust for both savory and sweet recipes. It is possible to use this as a top crust as well, for something like a chicken pot pie?

      I have never tried it for a pie topping but I’m pretty sure it would work. It is sturdy enough to roll out and gently lower it using baking parchment paper to place it on top of your pie filling.

    Now this is interesting. So if I were to cook some fillet more than normal for a Beef wellington this sounds great. Mmm! will plan and let you know. Love these recipes.

      This crust is delicious but definitely must be kept for pies, fruit I think. it is so rich not good for beef wellington. I think I may try a slab of Fat Head next time.
