DIRECTIONS

  • Cook the spinach in a pot of salted water for about 2-3 minutes; drain in a colinder, then run under cold water to cool.
  • Squeeze out any moisture using hands.
  • Set oven to 400 degrees (IMPORTANT, use middle oven rack).
  • Brush a large baking sheet lightly with melted butter.
  • Put one sheet of the phyllo on the buttered baking sheet, then brush the top of the sheet with about 1 tablespoon butter (you will not need more than 7 tablespoons butter since you brushing 7 sheets of phyllo, use the butter sparingly as the phyllo will be too greasy, you might even want to use less than the 7 tablespoons!).
  • Sprinkle the buttered phyllo with 2 scant tablespoons Parmesan cheese.
  • Lay another sheet of phyllo on top and press firmly so that it adheres to the bottom piece of phyllo.
  • Brush the sheet with melted butter, then sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
  • Layer the remaining phyllo in the same manner ending with a sheet of phyllo.
  • Brush the top sheet lightly with melted butter.
  • Bake for about 3-5 minutes.
  • For the topping; sprinkle the spinach evenly over the crust, leaving about 1-inch border all around.
  • Then season with black pepper and a little salt.
  • Sprinkle the sliced red onion over the spinach, then sprinkle with kalamata olives.
  • Sprinkle with crumbled feta cheese.
  • Drizzle with olive oil.
  • Bake the phyllo pizza for about 15 minutes or until the feta is melted.
  • Slice into squares using a pizza wheel.
