Gyro Pizza (search yielded nothing)
« on: August 10, 2007, 11:16:16 AM »
I went to school in Northfield Minnesota (Carleton College & St Olaf).  All the local pizza joints Bill's and Basil's etc had a gyro pizza.  The pizza came with gyro meat on it and it was cut into small squares and served with cucumber sauce.  I've never seen the pizza anywhere else and was wondering if this is a thing unique to a small area in minnesota.

jeffsui,

You might take a look at Reply 4 at http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php/topic,508.msg4449.html#msg4449, where I discussed modifying the recipe posted there to make use of the cucumber sauce, more commonly called tsatziki. There would not be much to stop you from cutting the pizza into squares (some rearrangement of toppings might be useful to conform to the square pieces), or even making the pizza rectangular to begin with.

We've got a local place or two that makes "regular" pizza with gyro meat topping and it is a very good tasting pizza. The lamb and garlic really adds the right stuff to it.
