Skopelos traditional pies

You can taste our traditional pies, which you can find only in our beautiful island! 

Tiropita or tyropita (τυρóπιτα, literally cheese-pie) is a Greek layered pastry food in the burek family, made with layers of buttered phyllo and filled with a cheese-egg mixture. Another variety is the spiral Skopelos Cheese Pie in which long strips of cheese stuffed phyllo are formed into a spiral and deep fried.
Tiropita can also be made in a large pan and cut into individual portions after baking. The individual form is sold in bakeries throughout Greece, where it is a popular breakfast and snack food. Alternatives to tiropita are spanakopita, a pie with spinach, as well as bougatsa. 

In Greece, one can find many varieties of Tyropita:

Kourou: Surrounded by a thick pastry.
Sfoliata: Surrounded by puff-pastry.
Horiatiki: Made in a Tapsi pan.
Tyropitakia: Bite-sized.
Skopelitiki: Made in the shape of a twirl.
Regular tiropita fillings usually consist of feta cheese, egg, butter and yogurt. However, "kasseropita" contains kasseri instead of feta cheese and, unlike regular tiropita, does not contain yogurt.
