Authentic Greek Tiropita Recipe: A Delicious Greek Feta Cheese Pie

This winter has been cold for Greek standards so we spend more time in the house. Last night, we decided to watch a kid’s movie so I wanted to make something simple for dinner. This authentic Greek tiropita recipe was the first thing that came up to my mind. While I was preparing this delicious Greek feta cheese pie, I was thinking how creative and therapeutic I dare to say cooking can be! Combining ingredients to make something delicious for your loved ones! I know that when you cook it is the outcome that really matters, but don’t underestimate the process!

This authentic Greek tiropita recipe takes around 45 mins to prepare and around 50 mins to cook. It serves around 8 to 10 persons. After experimenting with this recipe quite many times, I suggest you don’t add salt at all. Feta cheese is quite salty after all.
