      I found this same recipe (except mine calls for 3 T of honey) in "Movie Menus." It is a really wonderful flatbread that is easy to make.

      This was an excellent recipe. I had never heard of pthois before but I'm so glad I tried these! Feta is my favorite cheese and this was so easy and delicious. There was a perfect balance between sweet and salty. I left out the additional salt and it was still great. I loved how thin and soft the bread was. Thanks for sharing!

      This was so good. I'm glad that I tried Phthois, it was very quick and easy to make. I only made 1/2 the recipe and ended up wishing I had doubled it ... next time I will. The flat bread was lovely; thin, tender, sweet, salty, with a nice flavor and texture. I really enjoyed being able to taste the sea salt, feta and honey with each bite. The wildflower honey that I drizzled on top, was perfect with it. Thanks so much for sharing this delicious recipe Bella.
