Spectacular Stacked Phyllo Pizza Snack

Featured
Picture of Spectacular Stacked Phyllo Pizza Snack
This sophisticated, yet simple stacked pizza is to die for!  And no, you don't have to stack it like I did, but it is a pretty cool effect.

The stacked pizza name comes from the stacking of the layers of tender, phyllo pastry that make up the pizza crust.

Although it takes a few minutes to brush on the butter and sprinkle the cheese between layers,  I can guarantee it's worth every  second! The flaky, buttery, cheesy layers of pastry literally melt in your mouth.

Try it with a glass of red wine (pairing perfection) or sans alcohol. Either way, it' s a delicious and satisfying snack or appetizer for kids and adults alike!

Step 1: Supplies:

Picture of Supplies:
10 sheets thawed phyllo pastry (to thaw phyllo, folllow package instructions-usually it's overnight in fridge)
1/2 cup butter, melted
10 Tblsp freshly grated parmesan cheese
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
3/4 cup fresh baby spinach
1 1/2 cups grated mozzarella cheese
1 onion, finely chopped
3-4 Roma tomatoes, sliced length-wise
1 tsp. dried oregano
Fresh herb sprig (thyme, orgegano, rosemary) - I use oregano
baking sheet- I use 15.5 X 11.5 inch baking sheet , as it fit the phyllo sheets best,  but you could use a regular baking sheet
non- stick cooking spray
pastry brush
bowl

*Alternatively: you can add your own toppings ( anchovies or peppers etc..) but don't overload, as this is a thin delicate crust!

Step 2: Preheat and spray pan
