Additional Tips

  • Feel free to add other toppings like feta cheese, kalamata olives, or fresh tomatoes to your gyros.
  • If you don’t have a grill, you can also roast the vegetables in the oven at 400°F for about 20 minutes.
  • For a gluten-free option, use lettuce wraps instead of pita bread.
