Tahinopita (Turkish: Tahinli pide), is a Greek-Cypriot cake which contains no dairy, eggs, or oil and is therefore considered vegan, making it popular during lent. Variations on the recipe include quickbread versions with chemical leaveners (such as baking soda or baking powder), yeasted versions, and phyllo layer versions.

In Cyprus, where the word pita is a generic word for either bread, cake or pastry, tahinopitta refers to a sweet bread roll (see tahini bread roll).

Tahinli pide is the specialty of Konya, Turkey cuisine.
