Piaya is a local delicacy commonly found in Bacolod, Negros Occidental where it originated. Its name came from the local term "piyaya", which literally means "pressed bread", describing its flat shape. It is made by filling dough with muscovado sugar, flattening it with a rolling pin, then baking it on a griddle.
The pale beige color of the flatbread is contrasted by the toasted brown hues that appear on the dough as it comes in contact with the hot griddle.
