Feta crust

This is a recent discovery from tastefull.gr and I just loved it. A recipe from Epirus, a north-west area of Greece. Τhank you Vicky for bringing it to the surface for all of us to enjoy.  Very easy, very yummy, very inexpensive, kids love it and you can be as creative as you like. Combine flour with milk and top with feta cheese or other. That’s pretty much it.

Recipe

Ingredients

  • 18 tablespoons of all purpose flour
  • 500 ml milk
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • a pinch of salt
  • 250 grams feta cheese

How to make: Pre-heat the oven to 220C/430F. Butter a big, shallow pan and put it in the oven to heat up. In a bowl, combine the flour with the milk, egg, water, and salt. You can experiment with the consistency. If it’s too runny, add more flour until you get a runny but holding dough. When the pan is all heated up, pour the dough to the pan. Crumble the feta cheese and add it on top. Add some small pieces of butter here and there and put it back in the oven for about 20-30 minutes or until the crust browns.

Notes and tips: I have already cooked this crust several times. When I did not have enough feta cheese, I combined feta cheese with cottage cheese. On another occasion,  I added pitted olives and paprika and I’m sure there will be more variations I will try. Think of it as the Greek version of  pizza crust and experiment with your favorite toppings.

  1. Hello, I want to try this recipe one day and thanks for sharing it! I usually combine feta cheese with ricotta cheese and sometimes with Fage yogurt. I do not like the taste of cottage cheese.
