I love Parmesan cheese, so it’s a no-brainer that this is my favourite pie crust. The parmesan flavours the dough beautifully and helps to bind it.
If using this low-carb dough to make mini pies, you’ll need to press it in quite thinly to get it across 6 pans.
I kept mine a bit thicker here for the photos as I didn’t want them to break when handling them without filling, but if you keep them in their trays to first bake the crust, then fill and bake as pies you shouldn’t have any issues.
This dough can be used as the pie crust for any of your favourite savoury pie fillings.

How to Make Nut-Free Keto Pie Crust
We are using almond flour but it's easy to make this pie crust recipe nut-free! Simply swap the ground almonds for ground sunflower seeds, using the same amount. You could also use coconut flour although you will need to reduce the amount to just about 1/3 cup (40 g/ 1.4 oz) and add one more egg to the dough.
