For the third day of alphabetical baking , is a savoury bake from turkey known as Cicek Pogaca which means flower shaped pogaca. According to Wikipedia, It is also called as pogacice eaten in Bosnia, Bulgaria, Slovenia, Serbia and Turkey. The outer layer can be done with filo pastry or the usual pizza bread dough and usually is served as an appetizer. These are usually filled with potato filling with loads of feta cheese stuffed in it.

Instead of feta cheese I have used paneer and spinach as the filling with chilli flakes and I have used some spice to add the zing. Both my daughter and son would have love to eat these kind of bakes, but since they are away from home, I am planning to bake them when they visit me , but for now it reached my friend’s place and she said it was good . So do try these cute flower shaped pizza
