Definition of Filo Dough

Definition: Phyllo

An unleavened dough made of flour, water, and oil spread into paper-thin sheets, phyllo (or filo) is characterized by crispiness and flakiness. Although it is traditionally made by hand using an exacting technique, today phyllo is typically produced by machine and sold frozen. It figures prominently into Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisines, and is a key component in Greek dishes such as baklava and spanakopita.
