“Instead of using pita bread this is made with pizza dough using ground beef, mushrooms, feta cheese and olives rolled into a pizza crust, you can substitute the feta for 2 cups (or more or less) mozzarella cheese if desired.”
1hr 15mins
2 gyrolls

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large skillet cook the beef with garlic, onion and red pepper flakes until browned (about 10-12 minutes) drain fat.
  2. Add in oregano, cumin, salt, pepper, chopped parsley, Parmesan cheese and chopped mushrooms; cook for about 2-3 minutes; remove from heat and set aside.
  3. If you are using homemade pizza dough, then separate into two even pieces.
  4. Roll out prepared pizza dough into TWO 11 x 7-inch rectangles.
  5. Sprinkle HALF the crumbled feta cheese (or mozza cheese if using) on the top of one crust, then HALF of the olives on top of the feta cheese, then spoon HALF of the beef mixture on top of the olives.
  6. Roll up starting at the long end, sealing both edges as you roll.
  7. Seal the seam across the roll and then tuck both edges under.
  8. Repeat with the remaining pizza dough and remaining fillings.
  9. Place the gyrolls on a lightly greased baking sheet.
  10. Lightly brush with oil, then sprinkle each with about 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder and 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese (these amounts do not have to be exact).
  11. Bake in a 400°F oven for 5 minutes.
  12. Reduce oven temperature to 325°F and continue baking for about 35 minutes more, or until golden.
