Gyro bread?

Do you use a pita or some type of flat bread? Thanks.

    I've never seen one on anything other than pita.

    Your inquiry rather vague, holdem. Are U asking what kind of bread "we" use for gyros? For instance, I love most all types of flat bread. What I use for gyros is pita bread. Please clarify...

    I think pita is typical for a gyro but around NE Florida at least pita's are used for all kinds of pocket sandwichs, from a brkfast pocket to a BLT or loosemeat type beef pocket

    well, pita bread IS a flat bread. A gyro should be on pita bread, but not inside a pocket pita like you'd find some sandwiches.

    I've had them all over the country, and I don't recall ever seeing them on anything but Pita bread.

    In fact I don't remember ever being given a choice.....

    Preferably on a good, sturdy pita (not the pocket type) warmed up on the griddle.

    When we made souvlaki (our gyros sandwich), we had a pan with prep that included oil rendered from roast lamb in it. This is what we put on the griddle to heat the bread.

    Actually I've always preferred gyros like they serve them at The Parthenon in Chicago - meat on a bed of onions. Period. No sandwich. Maybe bread and butter on the side though. And some saganaki to whet the appetite. Just a newbies two cents. Thanks for reading.
