This easy and delicious Lazy Pie recipe was taught to us by the charming Kalogris family when we visited their estate winery in the Peloponnese region of Greece. It was created long ago by farmers as a way to create a hearty meal out of whatever they had on hand. If you’re a stickler for precise quantities you may have a bit of an issue with this recipe as it’s pretty loosey goosey…just the way I like to cook!
