Keto Steak Fajita Pie Directions

    Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

    Start by making the keto pie crust. Melt the mozzarella cheese using a microwave safe bowl in the microwave for 2 minutes or in a non-stick skillet over the stove top until melted. To a food processor, add almond flour, egg, baking powder, xanthan gum and melted cheese. Pulse until combined and a dough ball forms. If you don't have a food processor, see suggestions below.

    Place dough into between two pieces of parchment paper. Roll out keto pie dough into a circle until the diameter is 2 inches larger than your pie plate. Remove the top layer of parchment paper. Place pie pan upside down on top the center of the pie crust. Flip upside down so the pie crust lands on top of the pie plate. Remove the parchment paper.

    Press the pie dough into the pie pan. Get rid of excess if needed. Poke holes in the bottom of the crust to allow for air to escape and to prevent the crust from bubbling up when baking. Bake in a 400 degree Fahrenheit oven for 10 minutes.

Heat over medium-high heat, then add bell pepper, onions and left over beef. Saute until the vegetables are slightly softened. Remove from heat and set aside until pie crust has finished baking.

Keto Pie Crust

The keto pie crust in this recipe is made from fathead dough. I have a detailed recipe on how to make keto fat head dough that you should check out if this is your first time making keto dough.

Fathead dough starts by melting mozzarella cheese. You can melt the cheese either in the microwave or on the stove top using a non-stick skillet. To combine all the ingredients, the easiest & fastest way is to use a food processor. If you don’t have a food processor, you can use an electric mixer or your hands. When using your hands, you basically have to knead the ingredients together to form a dough ball.

To roll out the pie crust, it is best to place the dough in between two piece of parchment paper. That way the dough won’t stick to the counter or the rolling pin. It will also make it easy to place the keto dough in the pie pan.

Leftover Steak

Often times we have leftover steak or roast and I’m always searching for recipes to incorporate the leftovers so I can feed my family something new. This recipe for keto fajita pie is the perfect recipe for using up leftover meat.

You can use any type of leftover proteins. Steak, roast, ground beef or chicken are delicious in this recipe.

If you don’t have leftover proteins, you can use fresh too. Try my recipe for Keto Taco Pie if you have fresh ground beef. For steak, thinly slice the steak and saute it in avocado oil over high heat until browned. Remove from the skillet, then saute the vegetables.

Keto Meal Prep Tips

Even though this recipe has quite a few components to it, you can still have this recipe done and dinner on the table in less than 30 minutes - and even sooner - if you prep ahead of time!

One of my biggest keto meal prepping tips is to always have a batch of keto fathead dough made up ahead of time. You can store the dough in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or freeze it in a freezer safe bag for 3 months. If you are using keto dough that you already prepped up days ago, this will save you about 5-10 minutes of your time. It will also be less dishes that you need to clean up!

Another tip is to wash and slice the peppers and onions ahead of time. I usually like to do my meal prep on Sundays. This is the day that I will wash and prep all of the veggie I plan to use that week.

This recipe is ideal for nights when you have leftover beef - either steak, roast or you could even use ground beef. Using leftover proteins is a huge time saver since you don’t need to spend time cooking up meat for dinner.
