Viška pogača, or pogača from the island of Vis, is a type of baked bread pie, similar to focaccia filled with anchovies or salty fish, onions and depending on which part of the island, tomatoes.

Anchovies / salty fish – 200 g
Onion – 1
Peeled tomatoes – 100 g
Olives (black) – 50 g
Flour – 250 g

1. Prepare dough – similar like for bread (mix flour, yeast, olive oil, warm water, finely chopped rosemary) and let sit for 30-40 minutes.

2. In a pan (with olive oil) fry the chopped onion until soft and brown, then add the chopped peeled tomatoes. Add a bit of pepper and when cooked take off heat.
