Sunny spinach pie

I think that this sunny spinach pie is wonderful!!! Yes…yes….wonderful is the right word for it. But it is also really tasty and inviting and it is not difficult to prepare. Follow my instructions…I’ll teach you how to make it.






For the dough:

  • 500 g of flour 0
  • 90 ml of extra vergin olive oil
  • 200 ml of warm dry white wine
  • 1 table spoon of salt

For the stuffing:

  • 350 g of boiled spinach
  • 350 g of ricotta cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 100 g of grated Parmesan cheese
  • salt and pepper
  • breadcrumbs

Let’s start from the DOUGH.

Put all the ingredients in a mixer.

DSCF3347Mix them until the dough becomes uniform. (It is possible to mix by hand, too).

DSCF3348Cover it with clingfilm while you prepare the stuffing.

Squeeze the boiled spinach in order to eliminate the water. Cut it with a knife, then mix it with the ricotta cheese.

DSCF3350Add the egg, the grated Parmesan cheese, a generous pinch of fine sea salt and pepper.

DSCF3351Combine all ingredients very well.

Now divide the dough in two parts.

Create two circles of about 30 cm using a rolling-pin.

DSCF3352Place the first circle of dough on a baking paper and spread some breadcrumbs on it.


Put part of the stuffing in the centre of the circle and form another circle with the rest of the stuffing as you can see in the photos.DSCF3354Spread some Parmesan cheese on the stuffing.


Now cover with the second circle of dough.

DSCF3356Seal the borders of the two circles using a fork.

DSCF3357Place a small bowl on the centre of the sunny spinach pie and press lightly.  Prickle with a fork all around.

DSCF3358Cut the external border in 2 cm slices using a sharp knife.

DSCF3359Turn each slice upside.

DSCF3360Do the same with all the slices.

DSCF3362Preheat oven to 180° and then bake the sunny spinach pie for about 30 minutes.

  2. Hi
    I like ur sunny spinach pie. So creative of you:) Can you ps tell me if I can substitute dry white wine with some other non-alchoholic liquid? Look forward to your reply.

  3. I am in the United States and have a question about the measurement of flour used. You say to use 17 oz. of flour, what does that compute to cups? Thanks you, this look so good! I will be awaiting your answer.

    1. A cup is 8 ounces but that is volume. When a recipe calls for weight a cup measure is different depending on what dry ingredient you are using. Flour weighs 4 ounces per cup measure as Ingrid said. I am making your recipe right now and really looking forward to trying it. It looks spectacular!

  4. Thank you for this recipe can I make it and freeze it for a day or two before baking it and serving. Straight from freezer to oven to table thanks

  5. Facilissima, buonissima e soprattutto di grandissimo effetto: a masterpiece! Grazie per la ricetta
    ps: viene ottima anche sostituendo al vino bianco la stessa dose di acqua frizzante, in questo modo si ottiene la “pasta matta”
