Ground Beef Gyroll

Ground Beef Gyroll created by Linajjac

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.

ingredients

directions

  • In a large skillet cook the beef with garlic, onion and red pepper flakes until browned (about 10-12 minutes) drain fat.
  • 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.
  • If you are using homemade pizza dough, then separate into two even pieces.
  • Roll out prepared pizza dough into TWO 11 x 7-inch rectangles.
  • 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.
  • Roll up starting at the long end, sealing both edges as you roll.
  • Seal the seam across the roll and then tuck both edges under.
  • Repeat with the remaining pizza dough and remaining fillings.
  • Place the gyrolls on a lightly greased baking sheet.
  • 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).
  • Bake in a 400°F oven for 5 minutes.
  • Reduce oven temperature to 325°F and continue baking for about 35 minutes more, or until golden.

    I added my own blend of garlic, onion, mushrooms, green peppers *as per usual* but everything else about this recipe was simple and delicious. <br/>I didn't have any pizza crust on hand, but I did have a tube of breadsticks w/garlic butter spread. PERFECT! If you want to serve this as a party dish then the breadsticks are best - they very easily pull into single serve rolls.<br/>I sauteed some mushroom caps with some fresh basil and layered that at the bottom of the roll so it would be in the middle. The garlic spread really made the crust flaky and light. I will definitely make this again and plan on having fun experimenting with other ingredients!

    Made as directed with the substitution of mozzarella cheese. I was concerned that an 11x7 section of dough wouldn't be large enough for all the meat and cheese. However, it was just the right amount of dough for the filling and baked in the time given. My husband has asked that I make this often and suggested that next time I make them as individual size rolls to be eaten like a sandwich. I think next time I will serve them with Tzatili sauce.

    I forgot to leave a review earlier. ;) This recipe ROCKS! I served it with a side of Tzatziki sauce. I didn't add the mushrooms as we don't like em. But I added diced cucumber in its place. Nothing but rave reviews from my family. Edited to add, I used a homemade pizza crust.
