'The Kitchn' blog recently put together a recipe for savory hand pies made out of spinach and feta cheese. Spanakopita is a classic Greek dish that consists of spinach and feta sandwiched between layers of flaky phyllo dough. This recipe puts a twist on the tasty Greek dish by turning it into a crispy hand pie.

Instead of using phyllo dough, this recipe calls for delicious pizza dough. While homemade dough is always an option, store-bought dough will also work. Once the dough is rolled flat it needs to be filled with a delicious mixture of frozen spinach, feta cheese and fresh herbs. The savory hand pies are then baked in order to give the exterior a crispy texture.

The cheesy hand pies provides a tasty new way to enjoy a beloved Greek dish.
