Lazy Pie / Tembelopita Zagoriou
- 2 cups of strained Greek yogurt.
- 2 large eggs lightly beaten
- 1 ½ 2 cups of water
- 2 tbsp. unsalted butter melted
- 2 ½ cups crumbled feta cheese
- 2 – 2 ½ cups of flour all-purposes
- ¼ cup of milk
- 3 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
Preheat the oven to 325°F/125°c.
In a large bowl, mix the yogurt, eggs and 1 ½ cups of water. Add the melted butter and stir. Add 2 cups of flour. Mix all of the ingredients well and add 1 ½ cup of feta and stir. The mixture should become thick as a batter. Add more flour or water if necessary to achieve proper thickness.
Butter a baking pan approx. 30-45cm. in size Pour the mixture into the pan and spread it evenly with a spatula. In a small bowl, mix the remainder of the feta with the milk and oil and pour the mixture on to the surface of the pie, making sure it goes everywhere. Place on the middle rack in the oven and bake until it’s set and golden brown, approximately 1 hour and 10 minutes. Remove the pie from the oven, let it cool slightly and cut.
