From the Texas Beef Council posted for the Greek portion of the Zaar World Tour. Feel free to up the seasonings on the beef if you like it really flavorful. As Saraghina states, leftover roast would be great here too!

I have a bounty of zucchini and squash right now, so I processed half a zucchini and mixed it in with the hamburger, seasoning it with garlic, salt, pepper, and oregano. It adds some green flecks and softens the texture of the meat a little bit. I served the gyros on naan, which we like much better than pita bread, and topped them with sautéed zucchini, squash, and onions. I also added a little homemade hummus and canned banana peppers. For the tzatziki, I added a little olive oil, lemon juice, and dill. Delicious!
