How to Make an Olive Oil Pie Crust

 

 

Olive Oil Pie Crust

 

I have a butter based pie crust that I use for sweet pies, but this olive oil pie crust is the one I always use for savory pies and quiches. It is really not difficult to make, so I thought I would show you.  Don’t worry, there will be a recipe at the end.

First, place the flour, salt, and olive oil in a food processor fitted with the knife blade.  Process until evenly distributed.  Add the first two tablespoons of ice water and continue processing.  Then add just a drop or two of water at a time until the dough begins to stick together like in the photo below.
