I need to make Isreali spinach pies, and I don't know what type of dough to use.
If you mean this is like a triangular pastry with spinach filled, slight sour taste and sometimes onions then you can use a recipe under "fatayer dough" (google search)
My old roommate used to be Israeli and ate spinach boureks (sp?) often. I believe it was either made with filo or puff pastry.
Phyllo is easy since it is ready made but another type of stuffed pie is a sambusak. The dough is made with flour or I use part flour and part cream of wheat or semolina. This gives a slightly gritty texture but good.
I haven't had "Israeli" spinach pie, but I'd imagine sambousa dough is exactly what you'd want for spinach pie from that part of the Middle East.
If you can find a recipe for Burek, an mideastern alternative with phyllo, but big, do it, beats the little ones hands down, a real WOW
