Gizzada or Grizzada, also referred to as pinch-me-round, and known as Guizada in the Portuguese language, is a pastry in Jamaican cuisine and Portuguese cuisine. The tart is contained in a small, crisp pastry shell with a pinched crust and filled with a sweet and spiced coconut filling. It may be of Portuguese/Jewish origin. Might as well be from Czechoslovakia, too.
