Filo Pastry ala Pizza

It is a week now since I have baked this Filo Pastry ala Pizza. It is also a week now since I have announced to my FB friends to wait for the recipe of the photo I have posted. I am a busy woman with no real time management so I just write when I want to. 

If you want something different, here is a Filipino pizza recipe I have baked for a while. Anyway, I have already written the ingredients in a draft so I would not forget some important veggies or spices. Let´s start!


1 ready made Filo Pastry (about 10 inches x 14 inches)
Steak sauce for spreading (tomato sauce or ketchup will do if you have no steak sauce)
6 pieces of smoked ham, cut into small cubes
2 ripe tomatoes, chopped
a few pieces of rucola or arugula leaves (rocket salad), chopped
4-6 tablespoons of mozzarella cheese
salt and pepper to taste
1 egg, beaten 

Things you need:
  • sharp knife
  • cutting board
  • a strainer for straining the rucola leaves
  • baking tray with a baking sheet

Step by step of making the filo pastry ala pizza.

How To Make Filo Pastry ala Pizza

  1. Put your ready made filo pastry on your working table. Cut this into 8 squares. Cut the edges of the filo pastry as you can see in the photo. Arrange them on the baking tray with baking sheet.
  2. Put 1 tablespoon of steak sauce on every square and spread it in the middle of the filo pastry.
  3. Then add the smoked ham, rucola leaves and tomato slices on top of the sauce.
  4. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  5. Then add mozzarella cheese on top.
  6. Then insert the cut edges of the filled filo pastry into each other to form like a small saucer. You can wet them a bit of water so the edges will stick to each other. 
  7. Brush the sides of the filled filo pastry with a beaten egg.
  8. Bake in the 175°C preheated oven for about 15 to 20 minutes, it depends on what kind of oven you have at home.
  9. Serve with salad. Enjoy baking.

  • You can use bacon instead of smoked ham and be careful of using the salt.
  • If you don´t have mozzarella cheese, you can use Gouda or Cheddar cheese.
  • I used the steak sauce in this recipe as I didn´t have ketchup and a pack of canned tomato sauce was too much to be needed.
