There are recipes that use oil. Google [recipe pie crust oil] without the brackets and you will get a good number of hits from reliable sites. I would not try to adapt a regular recipe.

I recently got this recipe from a co-worker who swears by it.

2 c. flour

1 tsp. salt

6 TBsp. water

1/2 c. oil

Mix all together and roll out between sheets of wax paper. Turn upside down and drop one into pie pan, pour filling, then drop the second crust on top.

Good luck!

Recipe is -

2 Cups Flour

1/2 Cup Canola Oil

5 Tablespoons ice water

Dash Salt 1 teaspoon Sugar

Stir the dry ingredients with a whisk. Pour in the oil. Stir until half mixed. Pour in the water 1 Tbsp. at a time. Mix

Roll into two balls. Put each on between waxed paper and roll out. I reuse the paper over for the second ball.

Her's an old recipe I got from my Mom years ago. It usually turns out quite well. You may want to double recipe for a double crust pie.

2 cups flour

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup oil

5 tablespoons ice water

Mix flour and salt together. Beat oil and ice water together until frothy. Mix into flour with fork. Roll into a ball onto flour dusted wax paper. Roll out with rolling pin & cut as desired for pie crust.

I often use recipes that have oil, also many traditional Italian breads and pies have oil. I do not think it should be a problem at all:)
