A WW-friendly take on this hearty American classic.


For the Dough

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour, 165 g
  • ½ cup water, 120 ml
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, cold
  • 1 tablepoon active dry yeast

For the Filling

  • 1 pound 97% lean ground beef, 300 g
  • 1 cup finely chopped onion, 160 g
  • 1 cup diced carrots, 130 g
  • 1 cup diced red bell pepper, 100 g
  • 1 cup diced zucchini, 100 g
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin


Prepare the Dough

  • In a small bowl, combine the active dry yeast with 1/4 cup warm water. Let it sit for 5 minutes until it becomes frothy.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and cold butter. Use a pastry cutter or your fingers to incorporate the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Add the yeast mixture and the remaining water to the flour-butter mixture. Mix until a dough forms.
  • Knead the dough on a floured surface for about 5-7 minutes until it becomes smooth. Place it back in the bowl, cover with a cloth, and let it rise for 1 hour or until doubled in size.

Prepare the Filling

  • In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onions and cook until translucent.
  • Add the ground beef to the skillet and cook until browned. Drain any excess fat.
  • Stir in the carrots, red bell pepper, zucchini, and tomato paste. Cook for an additional 5-7 minutes until the vegetables are tender.
  • Season the mixture with salt, black pepper, and ground cumin. Mix well and let it simmer for another 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

Assemble and Bake

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
  • Divide the dough in half. Roll out one half to fit the bottom of a greased pie dish.
  • Spoon the beef and vegetable mixture onto the dough in the pie dish, spreading it evenly.
  • Roll out the remaining dough and place it on top of the filling. Seal the edges and cut slits on the top to allow steam to escape.
