About Homemade Soft Turkish Pogaca:

Pogaca is a kind of pastry and people in Turkey have them in their breakfast. There are many varieties of this pastry like olive, cheese, sujuk, potato, sausage etc. This recipe is for plain one, but if you wish, you can add other ingredients in it like some feta or kashkaval cheese, olive, potato and even chocolate paste. Besides, you can put these ingredients and some tomato, cucumber etc. while you’re having your breakfast by dividing the pogaca into two. Think it like a sandwich bread.
