Crowned with succulent gyro meat, jalapenos, and tons of cheese, the supreme gyro pizza showcases Famous Gyro & Pizza's namesakes in one delectable package. Of course, plenty of other toppings can crown pies, from bleu cheese and housemade buffalo sauce to thinly sliced Philly steak. Cooks can also stuff said steak into the big famous gyro cheesesteak, an 18-inch pita also filled with gyro meat, peppers, and French fries. But not everything here plays off the pizza and gyro theme. The eclectic menu encompasses everything from Italian specialties like mussels marinara to Mediterranean classics, such as curry chicken kebabs and roasted half-chickens.
