Quick Spinach and Cheese Pie
I really wanted to make a spinach pie this season, but when I saw the quick version I gave up making a classic one, and I did well!
It is very good, soft, fluffy and in addition - very fast, the spinach is put raw on top and that's about it - it doesn't lose its taste and aroma at all. It's like a pizza with a fluffier top, I also added a little feta cheese in addition to yellow cheese, but it's not mandatory.
At the last step I put a section, it is more representative :)
plus a little oil for the filling
I picked spinach - 500g - but after cleaning about half of it remained
plus a little feta cheese as desired
Step by step
In a bowl, mix the yeast with warm water and sugar, leave for 15 minutes until it starts to foam.
Then add the olive oil, salt ...
Mix well with a spatula or spoon, it will be a soft and sticky dough - leave it like this, do not knead more.
Cover the bowl with a towel and let rise for 30 minutes.
After this time, take out the dough on the table sprinkled with flour and make it a little uniform, it should not be kneaded - just pass it through the flour so that you can work with it.
Spread a round sheet about 6-7mm thick, put it in a tray greased with oil or spread with baking paper.
I used a 32cm round tray here, but it works well in a simple oven tray - the square one.
We make the filling quickly - the spinach (washed and cleaned beforehand) is finely chopped, mixed with the grated cheese. Sprinkle with a little oil, possibly very little salt and pepper (if you add salted telemea do not add salt) - mix well.
Pass all this composition over the dough - don't be afraid if it's a big pile - it will all fall into the oven.
Bake for 40 minutes in a preheated oven at 180 degrees - the dough should brown on the edges.
After baking, let it cool a bit, then serve on a plate or portioned as you like.
Here is a section, quite representative I think.
