Gyro Pizza

Happy Tuesday! I’m running very, very behind this morning. I cannot believe it is almost 11:30 and I’ve accomplished next to nothing. It’s okay, beating myself up over it will lead to nothing good so I will push along like it was 5 AM; the time I actually got up this morning.

Yesterday I promised some terrific use of that Tzatziki sauce, do you remember? If not, go skim the blog post and check out the recipe. You’ll see what I’m talking about now! Well I come to you this morning with a fantastic recipe. FANTASTIC. If you’re not sitting down right now, you should definitely think about it.

I am about to knock your socks off.





Okay, take a look at this Gyro Pizza.

Oh yes, you read that correctly – GYRO PIZZA! You haven’t lived until you pack a thin crust of sweet pizza dough with all of the fixings of a gyro. I can die happy now.  I mean, look at that picture!

1 thin crust pizza dough {I used the Pillsbury brand}

3.5 ounces sliced lamb, seasoned according to your tastes

¼ cup tzatziki sauce

¼ cup crushed tomatoes, juices drained

1 tablespoon shredded cheese {optional. You could crumble some feta on there but we were completely out #epicGYROfail}


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F

Bake the pizza for about 6 minutes or until it is just beginning to turn a golden brown on the bottom and top

Layer your ingredients, beginning with the tzatziki sauce, lamb, tomatoes and cheese

Cook for an additional 6 minutes or until the dough is completely cooked through and is nicely golden brown

Remove from the oven, sprinkle with some additional pepper and add some lettuce


This was such a fantastic pizza. Nick and I loved it. We love gyros, but never thought about adding some of our favorite flavors to a pizza on our own. It was weird that we had such an enlightened moment. We have ordered gyro pizzas before but never attempted to make our own. That ends now! Next time I’ll make my own dough, but hey for the first time this really worked out!

xoxo Mel
