I know you thought I said it wrong, but in Greek, you shouldn't pronounce the G in the Gyro. The name comes from the Greek word γύρος which is translated to 'circle' or 'turn', and it derives from the Turkish word döner, also meaning "turn". The history of grilling meat, then cut or slice as the meat keeps cooking comes from the Ottoman Empire, first presented as Döner Kebap. After World War II, the dish was introduced to Athens by immigrants from the middle east. The addition of the Tzatziki made the dish too become known as Gyros. Gyros can be done with pork, chicken, or lamb. I chose chicken here but feel free to take this recipe and change the type of meat to your preference. You know already that pita is my favorite bread, this is just another type of pita. Made with a little bit of olive oil in the dough, grilled, and not attempting to create a pocket. This pita we stuff on top like a taco. Ohhh YASSS.
