    In the US, usually "FEE-low". The UK or Australia might be different.

    Also more typically spelled "phyllo".

    phyllo [FEE-loh]
    Literally translated, the Greek word phyllo means "leaf." Culinarily,
    it refers to tissue-thin layers of pastry dough used in various Greek
    and Near Eastern sweet and savory preparations, the best known being
    BAKLAVA and SPANAKOPITA. Phyllo (also spelled filo ) is very similar
    to STRUDEL dough. Packaged fresh and frozen phyllo dough is readily
    available the former in Greek markets, the latter in supermarkets.
    Unopened, phyllo can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a month.
    Once opened, use within 2 to 3 days. Frozen phyllo can be stored for
    up to 1 year. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator. Refreezing phyllo
    will make it brittle.
