Pirog or pyrih (Russian: пиро́г; IPA: [pʲɪˈrok] (listen), pl. pirogi пироги; Belarusian: пірог; Northern Sami: pirog; Ukrainian: пиріг, pl. pyrohy пироги) is a pie that can have either a sweet or savoury filling. The name is derived from the ancient Proto-Slavic word pir, meaning "banquet" or "festivity". Pirogi or pyrohy are full-sized pies, while pirozhki (Russian: пирожки, singular пирожок, literally "small pirog") or pyrizhky (Ukrainian: пиріжки, singular пиріжок) are individual-sized buns that can be eaten with one hand.
