Easy Vegan Spanapizza

Easy Vegan Spanapizza is the new recipe on the block and trust me, you’re going to want to make this (like yesterday). have you ever had spanakopita? well, this is vegan spanakopita but in “pizza” form and made SO much easier.

spanakopita is one of favorite greek dishes of all time, and i have made it vegan multiple ways.

while i adore the dish, it’s sort of annoying to make because…phyllo.

phyllo is one of my least favorite foods to work with because i find it to be extremely fussy and difficult to work with.

well, i have made the spanakopita-making process a thousand times easier because now, you barely have to deal with the phyllo.

here are some directions to thaw the phyllo dough from Athens Phyllo Dough!

  1. How do I defrost frozen phyllo dough?
    1. Thaw and store in refrigerator.
      • Remove sealed phyllo roll(s) from box and place in refrigerator overnight.
      • Bring phyllo dough to room temperature prior to use (about 2 hours).
      • Phyllo must be completely thawed and at room temperature for best results.
      • Unopened phyllo has a refrigerated shelf life of 4 weeks thus it can be on hand and ready to use whenever needed.
    2. Thaw and use at room temperature.
      • Remove sealed phyllo roll(s) from box. Place phyllo on counter at room temperature at least 3 hours.
      • Phyllo must be completely thawed and at room temperature for best results. Do not open until all other ingredients are assembled and you are ready to work.
      • Remove any phyllo you don’t need for your recipe, re-roll, wrap in plastic and refreeze up to expiration date.

there’s 1 lb of phyllo per box (2 packs) if you use Athens brand. you will need half of that, so one pack or half a pound.

all you have to do is grease a baking pan with avocado oil and lay the entire pack of phyllo flat on the baking pan.

it’s just like laying down pizza crust. normally, with spanakopita, vegan butter or olive oil would be brushed in between the layers.

guess what though, that’s not even necessary, it holds up together perfectly as is. told ya i was making this easy!

ah and the delectable filling is the best part.

vegan feta, vegan cream cheese, garlic, onion and lemon juice is finely pulsed in a food processor. then, you can take a few generous handfuls of spinach and pulse that in there along with dried dill and parsley.

if your food processor isn’t large enough to do so, you can pulse the spinach first or chop it up, remove from the food processor and fold it into the cheese mixture.

Ingredients

  • phyllo
  • 1/2 lb phyllo roll (usually two come in a pack so you just need one)

  • filling
  • 6 ounces vegan feta cheese

  • 8 ounces vegan cream cheese

  • juice of 1/2 small lemon

  • 1 tbsp minced garlic

  • 1/4 cup onion

  • 1/2 tbsp dried dill

  • 1 tsp dried parsley

  • few generous handfuls of fresh spinach

  • sea salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  • preheat the oven to 375 degrees. see text for how to thaw phyllo properly.
  • grease a baking pan with avocado oil or EVOO and lay the entire pack of phyllo flat on the baking pan. the stack should be about 1/2 an inch thick.
  • then, take the vegan feta, vegan cream cheese, garlic, onion and lemon juice and finely pulse in a food processor. next, you can take several handfuls of spinach and pulse that in there along with dried dill and parsley. if your food processor isn’t large enough for that, you can pulse the spinach first or chop it up, remove from the food processor and fold it into the cheese mixture.
  • *the key is to have some chunks of cheese dispersed and not a completely green mixture. it’s supposed to be grainy, so you don’t want to over blend the mixture.
  • lay the mixture on top of the phyllo stack and spread out evenly. take the filling close, but not quite all the way to the edges because it will puff up. you don’t want it to spill over too much onto the baking pan.
  • add some vegan cheese to the top if you would like and bake at 375 for 30 minutes. cut into slices and enjoy!

  1. This recipe was absolutely delicious, 11/10!!!! The only change I made was swapping goat cheese for the vegan feta because I am not vegan but I left everything else the same and it was immaculate.
