Gyro Pizza Fatty

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I am going to try to smoke my first fatty this weekend. I worked at a greek pizza place in high school and my favorite pizza had lots of feta cheese, gyro meat, mushrooms and pepperoni. I thought that this would make a very good fatty. Does anyone know a rub that would give the meat that good gyro taste? Also, I saw someone who had a fatty that was baked in a bread crust. How is this done? Thanks in advance. -Andy

I love greek food, dip that fattie in some tzatziki sauce. Sounds awesome.

You are right. Tzatziki is a must. I can't wait.

Gyro seasoning and sauce

  • 2 1/2 pounds of boneless pork loin, shoulder, or fresh ham
  • white wine vinegar
  • ----------
  • 3 tablespoons of sea salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons of sweet paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon of pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon of finely crushed (powdered) Greek oregano (rigani)
  • ----------
  • 6-8 pieces of thin pita bread (not pocket pita)
  • 1/2 cup of tzatziki (see below)
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 2 tomatoes, sliced
  • french fries (optional)
  • olive oil
Here is one variation of the tzatziki sauce
4 cucumbers
3 cloves , peeled and minced
1 tablespoon olive
Salt and pepper, to taste
2 cups yogurt, or yogurt and sour mixed
Peel and seed the cucumbers, and put through a fine grater (not a blender)
Allow to drain in a colander until the juices have stopped running
In a small bowl, mash the garlic with the olive oil, salt and pepper
Stir in the cucumbers and yogurt
Chill, covered, for 1 hour or more
Serve as a dip with crackers or raw vegges

That sound like a great idea, I love gyros, and most greek food. Keep us posted on how you make it and how it turns out, I'd be interested in making one myself.

There's a breakfast place in my area that make gyro omelets, they're so good. I know they will supply me the gyro meat, and I can make and get everything else.

Would ground lamb work for the meat? Isn't that what's in a gyro?

Andy, that was my Pizza Fattie. After your fattie is done, roll a pizza dough (that you can buy in a can like a can of biscuits) around the fattie and and bake it in an oven according to the directions on the can. You can sauce and and sprinkle cheese on the dough first. then roll it. Good Luck !
