This is a traditional Macedonian pie prepared from special kind of crepes which we call "pitulici". It is usually prepared with white cheese or with garlic combined with walnuts. I used to have a grandma who would wake at 6 am and bake these pitulici for hours and when we visited her, she always served us this pie.
First you'll need to prepare pitulici (crepes) and then bake them again with the filling. Or just buy crepes from the store, apply the filling and put to bake.


For pitulici
  • 800 g flour
  • 3 tablespoons oil
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • water as necessary to whip the dough just a little thicker than crepe batter, about 7 glasses
For filling
  • 500 g white crushed cheese or crushed garlic combined with walnuts
  • 150 g oil for spraying


  1. Prepare batter from the above ingredients to be a little thicker than crepe batter. Be careful not to remain lumps in the mixture. 
  2. Bake around 20 pancakes from this batter on just a little oil, add a drop in the pan before pouring each crepe. Crepes should be with a diameter of 23 cm. If smaller, bake more crepes. 
  3. Take a deeper pan with diameter 24 cm, oil it and put the first crepe, sprinkle a little oil, spread cheese (or garlic mixture), place the second layer and so long until all the material is used. If you use garlic mixture, add salt.
  4. Spray well the upper crust with oil and sprinkle some crushed walnuts.
  5. Cut pie with a sharp knife before baking. Bake in the preheated oven at 200 C degrees for about 30 minutes.
