Keto Taco Pie Directions
Preheat ovenPreheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Make keto pie crustBegin by making the keto pie crust. In a microwave safe bowl, melt the mozzarella cheese using the microwave for 2 minutes or until melted. Or melt the cheese in a non-stick skillet over the stove top, until melted. Add almond flour, egg, baking powder, xanthan gum and melted cheese to a food processor. Pulse until combined and a dough ball forms. If you don't have a food processor, see suggestions below.
Press into pie panForm dough into a ball and place into between two pieces of parchment paper. Roll out dough into a flat 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. Slide you hand under the pie crust and hold on to the bottom of the pie dish. Then flip upside down so the pie crust lands on top of the pie plate. Remove the parchment paper.
BakePress the pie dough into the pie pan. Get rid of excess dough if needed. Using a fork, 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.
Brown ground beefWhile the crust is baking, move onto the taco filling. Add ground beef to a large skillet on cook until browned over medium-high heat. Add taco seasoning when the meat has almost finished cooking to allow for the spices to bloom. Remove from heat and stir in olives if using.
Assemble & bakeOnce the keto pie crust is done cooking, remove from the oven. Decrease the oven temperature to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Sprinkle 1/3 cup shredded cheese on the botom of the pie crust. Then scoop all the ground beef mixture into the pie crust. Spread sour cream all over the ground beef layer. Top with remaining shredded cheese. Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 6-8 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
Add toppingsWhen the keto taco pie has finished cooking, remove from the oven and let cool for a couple of minutes. Top with shredded lettuce, tomato, cilantro, guacamole, jalopenos or additonal cheese.
