Slice of spinach pie spanakopita

Easy Greek Spinach Pie


Spinach Pie, also known as Spanakopita, is a savory Greek dish found in most Greek restaurants. I use refrigerated pie crust and frozen spinach to make Easy Greek Spinach Pie.


  • 2 boxes frozen spinach – thawed. Make sure to squeeze all the water out of it with a kitchen towel.
  • 1 medium onion – diced
  • 1 cup feta cheese – crumbled
  • 1 egg – beaten
  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
  • 3 TBS extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 TBS Cavender’s All Purpose Greek Seasoning
  • Two pie crust doughs


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Place oil in stove top skillet, add onions and cook for 4-5 minutes.
  3. Add spinach and cook 8-10 minutes on medium.
  4. Remove spinach mixture from heat and set aside to cool.
  5. While spinach and onions are cooling, roll out the pie crust dough
  6. Using a medium-sized circle cookie cutter or a large glass, cut the pie crust dough into circles.
  7. In a large bowl, add the spinach and onions, beaten egg, feta cheese and ricotta cheese.
  8. Place 1-2 TBS of the mixture on 1/2 side of the circle, fold the circle over and crimp to close.
  9. Brush with egg whites.
  10. Make two small slits on the top of each hand pie.
  11. Bake for 20-25 minutes.
