Alevropita/Flour Pie

I recently returned from an amazing trip to Greece. Every meal was delicious, but I was particularly fond of one dish I ate. When I visited the villages of the Zagorohoria in Epirus (northwest Greece), we ate something called Flour Pie or Alevropita. The waiter explained that it was made using only flour, butter, egg, and cheese. It looked a little bit like a very thin, crispy pizza, and it was delicious. It is unlike other Greek pies in that it doesn't involve any phyllo.

I have been trying desperately to find a recipe for this dish. My Google searches only turn up a single recipe (http://www.mavrommatis.gr/modules.php...), which is seriously confusing. I tried to follow the recipe but the resulting dish was a disaster.

Does anyone have a recipe for this culinary delight? It seems to be a very regional dish and not available in cook books or restaurants.

Thanks for any help you can provide. I need to eat this delicious pie very soon!

    I'll try to check my book later, but this book might have it:
