  • After forming your pie dough in the pie pan, refrigerate it for at least 10 minutes
  • Preheat the Ninja Foodi on Bake/Roast at 300°F/150°C
  • Line the pie shell with aluminum foil all the way up to the edges of the pie and fill with beans or pie weights.
  • Put the pie on the rack in the low position and bake in the Ninja Foodi for 15-20 minutes or until the edges are a pale blonde color and set.
  • Remove the aluminium foil with the beans and poke very small holes in the bottom of the pie crust. Continue to bake on 300°F/150°C for another 5-10 minutes or until the crust is done to your liking.
  • Allow to cool completely before adding a no-bake pie filling or about 10 minutes before adding a filling that you plan on baking.
