Gyros with grilled peppers, tzatziki and pita bread

Recipe by: Nikolaj Juel
Serves: 4



Grind all the spices using a pestle and mortar. Add garlic + 1 tsp salt and grind till a fine purée. Add 2 tbsp olive oil and stir well.

Cut up the meat into 2 cm shreds and put them into a bowl together with the marinade. Mix well and set aside for a minimum of 2 hours, preferably overnight.


Put all ingredients into a bowl. Toss and season with salt and pepper – set aside.


Mix water and yeast in a bowl. Add 500 g flour and stir well, using a whisk, to prevent lump formation. Cover the bowl with clingfilm and leave it in a warm place for 3-4 hours. The dough will begin to rise and bubble. When the dough begins to collapse, you will be ready for the next stage.

Add the remaining 500 g flour plus salt. Knead the dough in a mixer until you have a smooth and elastic dough.

Pour a little olive oil onto the dough. Put your hand under the dough. Lift the dough and stretch it without tearing it apart.

Leave the dough to rise till double its size.

Roll small balls the size of a mandarin and bake one at a time in your Morsø Forno Spin till they swell up and become crisp and golden.

Cover the pitas with a clean tea towel.

Put the meat into a Morsø cast-iron dish. Season with salt and pepper.

Roast in your Morsø Forno Spin at a high temperature till golden and caramelised.

Serve the meat in the freshly baked pita bread together with grilled pepper and tzatziki
