Sift together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and cloves into a large bowl, making a well in the center.
In a smaller bowl, beat the olive oil with the honey, petimezi, grated orange zest, and ½ the orange juice and pour into the well.
Mix together to make a dough, adding the remaining orange juice as necessary.
Turn onto a floured surface and knead for about 10 minutes until the dough is smooth but not stiff.
Cover with a cloth and leave to relax for 30 minutes or longer.
Break off pieces of dough, about 2 tablespoonfuls each, and roll into snakes about ½-inch in diameter.
Press the two ends together, forming oval wreaths, and place on an oiled or non-stick baking sheet.
Bake in an oven preheated to 375℉ (190℃) F for 10 to 15 minutes- until they are brown and crunchy, but not too hard.
