Good morning. I was so amazed at how many people have never heard of Donairs. I guess I took for granted that everyone knew about them.
We get donairs here at most pizza places. They consist of pita bread topped with donair meat, then the trimming which is usually lettuce, tomatoes(chopped), chopped onions(raw) cheese and donair sauce.
The meat is served heated and along with the bread and sauce.
Over the years people discovered that it was also great made into a Donair pizza. Which just had pizza dough,donair sauce, meat,tomatoes,onions and cheese. Some add peperoni to both the donairs,and pizzas as well.
So that's a little bit about donairs. I use a old family recipe for my donair meat that was passed down from 3 generations of my old friends grandparents pizza place.
