Phyllo Fun

I love love love phyllo pastry!!! anything made from phyllo is scrumptious- desserts, pies... even pizza...

A while ago I read a recipe for a phyllo pizza but can't remember where... so I came up with my own...

And the best thing about this recipe is its so basic, quick and tastes oooohhhhhhh so good.


  • 7 sheets of phyllo pastry
  • 5 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 7 tablespoons finely grated parmesan cheese, divided
  • 3 tablespoons tomato passata  
  • 2 cups grated mozzarella cheese
  • crushed garlic (amount depends on your personal preference)
  • 2 cooked chicken breasts, roughly chopped
  • feta cheese
  • salt, pepper, dried oregano to taste
  • avocado (optional)

Brush a baking pan with some melted butter

Lay a sheet of phyllo pastry in the pan, folding the edges in to fit (keep the other sheets of phyllo covered with a damp tea towel to avoid drying out)

 Brush phyllo with melted butter and sprinkle evenly with one tablespoon of parmesan cheese

Repeat layers five times folding edges in every time, top with last sheet of phyllo; folding edges in, brush with melted butter

    Spread tomato passata evenly, sprinkle  with mozzarella cheese and garlic, arrange chicken pieces and feta over the mozzarella. 

    Sprinkle with salt, pepper, oregano, mozzarella cheese and remaining parmesan cheese.

    Bake in preheated oven at 200 degrees celcius for 18-22 minutes or until edges are golden brown.

    Add avocado to serve.

    This recipe can be easily altered to meet your desires. Get creative and play with different toppings.
