Preheat the oven to 350 F degrees.
Dock the pie crust by pricking the dough all over with a fork. If using a homemade pie crust, line with parchment paper and fill with beans. If using a store bought pie crust, leave as is.
Bake until matte in color, 7 to 10 minutes. (A homemade pie crust may appear glossier due to the butter, but do not bake longer than 10 minutes).
Meanwhile, add the eggs, butter, sugar, cocoa powder, and flour to a large bowl. Beat with an electric hand mixer until smooth and combined. Add the filling to the pie crust and smooth out the top.
Bake until top is set and sounds hollow when tapped, about 60 to 70 minutes. It’s okay if there are cracks on the surface. (For homemade pie crust, cover edges with foil if getting too brown).
Let cool 15 minutes before slicing and serving.
