What’s A Keto Pie Crust?
A keto pie crust is a recipe made with low-carb flours such as coconut flour or almond flour and without any sugar.
It can be used to make sweet or savory low-carb pies for a delicious dinner or dessert.
While a classic pie crust contains more than 30 grams of net carbs per slice, a keto pie crust slice contains less than 5 grams of net carbs.

- Almond Flour – Almond flour is made by grounding almonds and contains only about 10 grams of net carbs per 100 grams, which is 7 times less than all-purpose flour. Prefer ultra-fine almond flour because coarser versions leave the crust a bit grittier.
- Coconut Flour – Coconut flour contains 21 grams of carbs per 100 grams. It’s a highly moisture-absorbent keto-friendly flour because about a third of its weight is from fiber.
- Eggs – eggs are very low in carbs and are necessary for this recipe to bind the ingredients,
- Desiccated Coconut
- Coconut Oil
- Sweetener – pick any of your favorite keto-friendly sweeteners like erythritol, or even a liquid sweetener like sugar-free maple syrup.
Making The Keto Pie Crust
This one-ball recipe is ridiculously easy to make.
Combine all the ingredients in a food processor.
Process the pie crust batter on the high-speed setting for about one minute until it’s crumbly and there’s no more lump of flour.
Gather the pie crust crumble into a large ball, it should be sticky and be easy to do.
Place the ball in plastic wrapping and leave it in the oven for at least 20 minutes to firm up fully.
Preheat your oven to 340°F (170°C) and grease a 10-inch loose-bottom pie pan. If you don’t have a loose-bottom pie pan, you can cover a classic pan with lightly oiled parchment paper.
Transfer the keto pie crust dough ball to the pan.
Press it with your hands, it’s a recipe that doesn’t require rolling.
Once you have firmly pressed it to cover the whole 10-inch pan, use the back of a spoon to flatten its surface.
Pre-Baking The Crust
Prick the keto pie crust with a fork to prevent any bubbles from forming.
Then, place the pie pan in the oven at 340°F (170°C) and bake it for 20 to 25 minutes. Cover the crust after 10 minutes with a piece of aluminum foil to prevent it from burning.
The crust should have turned golden brown when it’s ready.
Take it out of the oven and fill it with your favorite fillings.
You can store the dough in the fridge for up to 3 days when it’s wrapped in plastic. Then finish the preparation and fill the crust.
It’s also possible to freeze the pre-baked crust after it has fully cooled down. I recommend freezing it in its pie pan.
Take it out of the freezer and fill it with your favorite toppings.
This keto pie crust recipe is already gluten-free, low-carb, keto-friendly, diabetic-friendly, and dairy-free.
But you can still make the following substitutions:
- Erythritol: if you are allergic or sensitive to erythritol, you can use allulose or tagatose. They are both keto-friendly and might be more gut-friendly for you.
- Coconut Oil: you can swap the coconut oil for melted butter, but the recipe wouldn’t be dairy-free anymore. If you are allergic to all things coconut, I recommend making my almond flour pie crust recipe, it’s 100% coconut free.
- Almond Flour: you can swap the almond flour for sunflower seed flour to make this crust nut-free, but this will after the net carbs.
