What you think about butter or shortening doesn’t matter when deciding if you should try this recipe or not, because this Olive Oil Pie Crust isn’t sacrificing any flavor or texture!

In fact, it’s better than any shortening or butter pie crust that I’ve had!

A friend gave me this recipe years ago, and I’ve never looked back to the old butter and shortening ones I used previously.

Don’t worry about any extra steps or time involved in trying this recipe, because there aren’t any!

No need to chill or freeze the olive oil – you’ll just cut it into your dry ingredients just like you do butter or shortening.

This recipe is a little wetter than a typical pie dough, but it’s still easy to work with when you place it between two sheets of wax paper.

By the way, I’ve always used the deep-dish pie pans by Pyrex because they don’t overflow so easily like the regular size!

Here’s how easy it is:

OLIVE OIL PIE CRUST

You’ll just mix the flour and salt, then cut the oil in with a pastry cutter (just like you would butter or shortening). After it’s crumbly-combined, add milk and toss/mix with a fork until combined. Super quick and easy.

Next, you’ll take half your dough (since this recipe makes a double-crust) and place it between two sheets of wax paper to roll it out.

To get it into your pie pan, just peel the top sheet of wax paper off and flip it over into the pan. Then, simply remove the second sheet of wax paper, which is now on top. 

For my pumpkin pies, I bake the crust at this point before I fill it. But for other pies (i.e. apple, chicken pot pie), I continue by filling my pie, and then repeating the rolling/flipping process with the other half of my pie dough.

Of course you’ll need to crimp the edges of your crust and cut vents in the top as usual. ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

I’m sure that once you try this Olive Oil Pie Crust Recipe, you’ll be glad you did!

    For a chicken pie what gas mark do you use and for how many minutes.

    Perfect pie crust I have been want for a long time. Than you,

  2. Karen Kasee

    For making a chicken pot pie, should I partially bake the bottom crust first? (I donโ€™t with store bought crust.)

  3. Where in Greece are you based? I’m in Thessaloniki!
    Going to try your pie crust today, but was going to use if for a spanakopita, should I blind bake the bottom first before adding the spinach mix?
    Thanks!

  4. Hello about to try this โ€œtoo good to be true :)โ€ recipe for hand pies . Will it work?

  5. Could you tell which olive oil you use . Would light olive oil work the same for this recipe?

    • I actually use really good extra virgin Greek olive oil because I live in Greece! But I have used just canola oil when Iโ€™ve been out of olive oil and it turned out great. ๐Ÿ™‚ so I imagine light olive oil would work just as well!

    Excellent pie crust! Perfect everytime
    2 1/2 cups of flour
    1/2 cup Olive oil.
    1/2 cup 1% milk
    1 teaspoon sugar
    Pinch of salt

  7. Hi I made this crust with one to one G/F Flour and it didn’t really work it was way to dry even after adding a lot more milk and oil. Any advice if you want it to be G/F?

    • Hi! I personally don’t have experience with gluten-free flour, but I have a friend who cooks all gluten-free for her son who has Celiac. She said even with one-to-one GF flour, you should cut back on the flour because it’s more absorbing and dense than regular flour.

    Just tried this for an apple pie, hope it works. I usually add a little sugar to my pie crust, but I followed your recipe to the letter. Don’t plan to tell my husband about this new recipe, let’s see what he says tonight.

  9. Made this today for tomato pie and they went so well together!

  10. I love this pie crust recipe! I used it to make Turkey pot pie and the crust came out perfect. I even used water in place of milk because I didnt have any. This will be my go to recipe every time from now on.
