I received a wonderful care package from Evelyn/Athens in Greece. The whole package smelled wonderful from the Greek oregano that Evelyn had included in the package. What better recipe to really appreciate fantastic oregano than pizza!

Units: US | Metric
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 2 cups chopped onions
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 3 (10 ounce) boxes frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
- 2 teaspoons dried oregano
- 1/2 cup fresh basil, chopped
- 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
- 15 ounces ricotta cheese
- 10 sheets frozen phyllo dough, thawed
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- 5 fresh tomatoes, sliced
- 1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
- 1/2 cup grated halloumi cheese
- 1Preheat the oven to 400°F.
- 2Heat the oil and saute the onion and garlic for about 5 minutes, until the onions are translucent.
- 3Add the spinach and keep sautéing until all the moisture has evaporated (you don't want this to be bone dry, just all the excess moisture should be cooked off).
- 4Add the oregano, basil and black pepper.
- 5Mix it into the spinach mixture and then remove from the heat.
- 6Mix in the ricotta cheese.
- 7Set aside for now.
- 8Find a jelly roll pan with a small rim and grease it.
- 9Lay one sheet of phyllo dough down on it, the sheet can be a little bigger than the pan, that's okay.
- 10Brush the sheet of phyllo with some of the melted butter.
- 11Top that with a second sheet of phyllo dough, and brush that with some melted butter.
- 12Keep going until all ten sheets have been layered and butter.
- 13Roll the overlapping ends of the dough onto itself to form the pizza"crust".
- 14Using a spatula, spread the spinach-ricotta mixture over the phyllo in an even layer.
- 15Arrange the tomatoes over this layer.
- 16Mix the mozzarella with the haloumi.
- 17If you can't get haloumi cheese, that's okay, don't kill yourself over it, just use 1 1/2 cups of mozzarella instead.
- 18Sprinkle the cheese over the tomatoes.
- 19Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown.
