Can an Italian girl who
loves her pastas and
panini find happiness

diet earlier this year. My answer was maybe…if I
could bring a little pizazz to the paleolithic menu.
This site is about my new adventures inside the
caveman’s culinary world. I’m on a mission to
create the best-tasting recipes I can for you and
me that stick pretty close to the paleo rulebook.

Hi Enjoli – sorry we left the oven temperature off the original post. It’s corrected
now. Your oven temperature should be set at 350-degrees F for both the unfilled
pie crust and the pie with the filling added. Thank you for catching that error! Hope
you enjoy Enjoli!
