I was finishing off making some spanakopita with store-bought phyllo pastry and had run out of the pastry with enough filling to make about 4 additional pieces (don’t you hate that?) so I decided to try my hand at a quick phyllo dough. It worked out extremely well so I thought I’d document the process. It’s getting dark so early these days, so you’ll need to excuse the horrible light in my photos.

Quick Phyllo Pastry

Makes about 4 sheets 15 cm x 30 cm (enough for 4 triangles)


  • 50 g all-purpose flour (10.5 ounces)
  • 15 mL olive oil
  • 2.5 mL red wine vinegar
  • 1.5 g salt
  • 25 -45 g water


  1. Mix all of the ingredients together until you get a uniform, soft dough that does not stick. Knead for a few minutes. Set aside, wrapped in plastic wrap at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  2. Divide into two equal balls and roll out, thin enough to see through. I used my KitchenAid pasta maker to the thinnest setting.
  3. Use in your favourite phyllo recipe.
