Incredible tuna pie

Print this recipe
A lot of people think that when you choose to go low-carb, your diet has to be boring. But, as the recipe below shows, that's just not true. You can even still have pie, and pie crust! This one is particularly delicious because it has cheese baked right into the crust, so you get that sharp Cheddar taste with every single bite.
This pie is reminiscent of the tuna casseroles we all grew up on, but instead of starchy noodles we have that gorgeous pie crust. And while I kept mine pretty traditional, adding just a handful of peas to go along with the tuna, I've also made this before with cauliflower, which can provide some bulk for those days when you're especially hungry.
