Halloumi Pie

I came across this as a snack food on a trip to Cyprus. I tried to find a recipe in English when I came home, but failed to find anything similar to decided to make it myself.


  • 1 quantity of pizza dough made as in here
  • 200g block of halloumi, coarsely grated
  • 20g fresh flat leaf parsley, finely chopped


  1. Make the pizza dough as described in the linked recipe.
  2. Pre-heat the oven to 220 degrees Celsius.
  3. Mix the grated cheese and parsley together in a bowl.
  4. Split the dough into quarters.
  5. Take one of the quarters and roll it out on a well floured surface until it's about 10cm round.
  6. Put one quarter of the cheese and parsley mix into the centre of the disk of dough.
  7. Use a pastry brush to dampen about 1 cm of the edge of the dough.
  8. Fold opposite sides of the dough disk to each other in the centre and squeeze together.
  9. Work along the edges, squeezing them together until the whole thing is sealed.
  10. Place on an oiled baking tray.
  11. Repeat for the remaining quarters.
  12. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes.
  13. Serve with some sort of sauce, such as tomato salsa or olive tapenade.

Makes 4 halloumi pies.
