  2. 1 1/2 pounds pizza dough

  3. 20 oz. spinach, fresh and chopped

  4. 1 medium chopped spanish onion

  5. juice from 1 whole lemon

  6. 8 oz. feta cheese, crumbled

  7. 1 tablespoon chopped garlic

  8. 1 egg and a splash of water

  9. Sesame seeds or poppy seeds

  10. Saute onion and garlic in olive oil. Add spinach and allow to

  11. wilt. Before you take this spinach mixture out of the pan, spoon

  12. it into a sieve and press on it with the back of spoon to squeeze

  13. out the excess water, then add the lemon juice. Roll out the bread

  14. dough into rectangle shape. Put a layer of the garlic, onion,

  15. spinach, lemon juice mixture on top of the rolled out dough. Smooth

  16. it down with a spautla. Then put a layer of crumbled feta cheese

  17. over that and smooth down with a spatula. Roll up the dough from

  18. one end to the other like a jelly roll. Pinch seams together.

  19. Apply egg wash and seeds of choice (poppy or sesame). Diagonally

  20. make slits into the dough to expose spinach. Bake at 350 degrees

  21. for up to 45 minutes.

  22. Tips: You need a pan or cookie sheet that is at least 15 inches

  23. long to bake this. Moving the rolled up, stuffed dough into the

  24. baking pan can be a four handed operation. I like baking it on a

  25. piece of parchment paper sprayed with a bit of no stick cooking

  26. spray.

  27. This dish makes a beautiful presentation. It tastes like greek

  28. spinach pies without the grease.
