Experimenting with foods and flavors is something my husband does very well. He is normally the head cook and likes to create new recipes. He even cleans up the mess. Isn’t that awesome?
Gyros(pronounced heroes) are one of his favorite foods, so with no pitas and no lamb meat he crafted the Gyro Pizza as a perfect substitute. You will need to make a Tzatziki Sauce the night before so it has lots of flavor to add to your Gyro Pizzas.
We use the recipe found on Brown Eyed Baker here –> Tzatziki Sauce Recipe.
