Elena Pervantes of Olive Tomato brings great recipes to the community of folks that love traditional Mediterranean cooking. We love her Whole Wheat Cheese Filled Cretan Pita dessert recipe. Cheese is mingled throughout the dough, creating a fabulous texture. There might be some new techniques at play with this recipe, but we think you’ll get the knack of it pretty quickly. We think it would be a fun dish to make with kids too!
You can drizzle honey or olive oil on top of the pita and add sesame seeds or other toppings if you like. This dish is considered a light desert, but you could make adjustments to make it savory in nature as well.
