Gyroll

Rated as 4.36 out of 5 Stars

"Well-seasoned lamb meat, along with feta cheese, zucchini and black olives, gets sealed into pizza dough and baked until golden. This mess-less version of a gyro sandwich substitutes pizza dough for the much harder-to-make pita bread. "

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Brown meat with garlic, onion, oregano, cumin, salt, pepper and hot pepper sauce. When meat is almost done, add parsley and cook until the parsley wilts. Remove mixture from heat and allow to cool.
  3. Roll pizza dough out into a rectangle (about 18 inches by 12 inches), with the long side laid out left-to-right in front of you. Spread out feta cheese, zucchini and black olives evenly over the dough, leaving 3 inches from the edges of the crust uncovered. Spread the cooled meat mixture over the top, still leaving edges of dough uncovered.
  4. Starting with the edge closest to you, roll up the whole thing until it is all rolled up. You can do this by using the uncovered edge of dough at the end as a 'strip' to stick to the roll and seal it, making sure both ends are pressed down and sealed. Sprinkle with garlic powder and bake in the preheated oven for 5 minutes. Then, reduce heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and bake for about 30 minutes, or until golden brown.

I used ground turkey since I don't like lamb, but this was good. My husband loved it. However, it was kind of hard to roll the dough with all the stuff on it, and it was still doughy in the mid...

I omitted the salt and made it like a calzone. I was unable to find ground lamb, so I substituted ground pork. My husband and I enjoyed it.

EXCELLENT!! I am very critical on Authentic Gyros when I go out and have never had a recipe to make them at home. When I was short on time and saw this recipe - WOW was I surprised! Followed t...

This is great. I used Pillsbury pizza dough. I also used ground beef. Left out the olives and zucchini because of hubby. You have to use fresh ground pepper with this-NOT the stuff you find o...

Yumm-ee. I kind of made this my own recipe because of my pickiness. I used all ground sirloin, no zucchini or olives, and added extra feta. I also had some egg whites in the fridge that I bru...

Great!!! We have tried both lamb and pork and enjoyed them both. I do think that the lamb gives it that true Greek flavour though. Try it with homemade tzatziki sauce. Great comfort food.

We really enjoyed this! We love gyros sandwiches and this was a nice alternative. I will try a different pizza dough next time. I used Pillsbury and it was okay, but I would have liked it a l...
