(SuStel):  At a qep'a' a few years ago, we asked Marc Okrand about this, and he said that {chab} would work for this. The word means any baked bread or crust sort of food. So, doughnuts are {chab}, turnovers are {chab}, and pizza is {chab}. Mince pie would be {chab}. Bagels are {chab}. [...] {chab} doesn't equal bread.

tIr ngogh 			bread
chab  			pie, tart, dumpling
'Iwchab 			blood pie
ro'qegh'Iwchab  		*rokeg* blood pie
