Before drawing off the heat, slowly fold in the stiffly-beaten egg whites. Divide the dough into two parts. Roll out with a rolling pin to form two discs. Oil a baking tin or a round baking pan and line with one of the discs. Pour over the meat sauce and cover with the other disc, peressing the edges together will.
