Meat Filling:

  • 1 1/4 pound ground beef or venison
  • 1 tablespoon dry minced onion about 3 Tbsp fresh
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 6 ounces canned tomato paste
  • 2 tsp sugar equivalent I used 1 packet Pyure

Top Crust:

  • 1 1/2 cups grated mozzarella I used 160g of Kraft 2%
  • 4 tablespoons butter melted
  • 1 large egg
  • 4 tablespoons almond flour
  • 3 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder


  • Preheat oven to 400°F
  • Brown ground meat with onion, drain off any excess fat.
  • Stir in Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, tomato paste and sweetener.
  • Spread meat mixture into 9 or 10 inch pie pan.
  • In large bowl, melt mozzarella cheese in microwave (for my 900 watt, it was about 2 minutes at 40% power).
  • Stir butter and egg into melted cheese. Then knead in almond flour, coconut flour and onion powder with hands or spatula. (Microwave for 5-10 seconds if needed to better incorporate the ingredients into the cheese)
  • Shape crust dough into a ball and roll out between sheets of wax paper to a diameter to fit pie pan.
  • Remove top sheet of wax paper, then invert rolled crust on top of meat mixture in pie pan. Crimp edges of crust if desired.
  • Bake pie at 400°F for 15-20 minutes or until browned on top.
