Chicken Gyros Pizza

Chicken Pita Pizza 11

A few weeks ago we hosted a giveaway sponsored by Pop Secret. We can finally announce the winner of the $100.00 Visa giftcard. Congratulations to Mary Beth Elderton! 


This has been a busy but fun weekend. Blog work, family reunion, more blog work, BBQ with new friends at our local pool, and dinner with a visiting cousin. And of course, lots of play time with Winnie. She turned two months on Saturday so we did a mini photo shoot. Super cute! We made this pizza last weekend and we liked it to much we decided to have it again this week. It is easy, so why not? It is definitely not your average pizza.There is no pizza sauce, no pepperoni, and no cheese. Until now I don’t think that I have ever made or eaten a pizza without cheese. Isn’t the cheese usually the best part? Despite there not being cheese, this was a pretty darn good pizza. It is very similar to these chicken gyros we made a couple years ago only in pizza form. And I liked it even better in pizza form!

Here is what you’ll need

Combine the ingredients for the marinade

Add the chicken and set aside

Shred the cucumbers for the sauce

Combine all the ingredient for the sauce

Roll out the pizza dough and bake

Grill the chicken

Slice it up!

Allow the pizza to cool then begin adding the toppings

Don’t forget the colorful tomatoes and fresh oregano

It is like one giant chicken gyro!

It is like one giant chicken gyro!
