The Greek pie story

Pies or “pites” (plural for “pita”) in Greek is not one, but a complete gigantic category of foods and sweets in both traditional and contemporary Greek cuisine. Basically, it is anything that is either wrapped or simply enclosed between one, two or more layers of dough – made of flour and water – spread so much that after baking it is as fragile, thin and crisp as an extremely dried leaf. Hence its name “filo”, that means “leaf” in Greek.
