Kreatopita – Meat Pie (Gullash Bil-Lahma Mafruma)

Kreatopita – Meat Pie (Gullash Bil-Lahma Mafruma)

Kreatopita is a meat pie that can be eaten as a main course with a salad or as a snack. It tastes great when it’s cold and is perfect to take with you at work or at a picnic.

To make the homemade butter phyllo which is similar to puff pastry, see instructions here but if you want to make something with less fuss you may use ready made puff pastry as well.

1 box Phyllo with butter


½ kilo ground beef
2 medium size leeks chopped in slices (optional)
3 spring onions
½ bunch of dill finely chopped
Salt and pepper
1/3 cup olive oil
1 cup graviera cheese (I always use mozzarella)


Prepare the phyllo as per instructions.

Wash leeks and cut them into 1 cm slices and boil them until tender, then strain them.

In a skillet heat the olive oil and sauté the onions, add leeks and then add the ground meat and sauté. Season with salt and pepper and remove from the heat. Add the dill and let it cool down.

Roll out the bigger phyllo and place in an oiled 28 cm baking tin. Add the meat mixture and sprinkle with the graviera cheese. Put the second phyllo on top. Take both phyllos which join them by pressing and giving them a nice shape. Score with a sharp knife (superficially) in 8 pieces and brush with olive oil.

Preheat oven at 180ο C and bake for about one hour until a golden colour is achieved.

Warning this recipe is not mine. I just saved them for my future needs when the time is needed by my family :)
