Anyone go to Chito's? Shawarma on Pizza

I've been going to Chito's Pizza and Bloor & Landsdown. If you order a pizza, you can get all the toppings from a shawarma hucked on it, I get a pepperoni pizza made then get the spit roasted chicken, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, tabbouleh, garlic sauce and hot sauce added to it, you can get a large for $18! It sounds bizzare but it makes great game day food.

  1. Is the pepperoni even necessary? I like the idea of a pizza with spinach or rapini, portobello mushrooms and hot peppers or roasted red peppers, plus the shawarma and its toppings, though the pink radishes would have to make an appearance somewhere on the pizza. Yum!

      Are they radishes or beets? I never order them

      1. re: duckdown

        Some places serve beets, but I'm talking about those hot pink crunchy pickled radishes that Lebanese and some other Middle Eastern places offer. Some places serve them gratis, along with pickled peppers. Others make you order them as a side, which I think is kinda lame. Why nickel and dime customers for salty snacks that stimulate your thirst and hunger?

        I'm going to have to hunt down a pizza joint here in Windsor that sells shawarma too and see if they'll do a custom pizza this way. There's good pizza here and great shawarma, but I'm not sure if they can be had at the same place.

        1. re: 1sweetpea

          I believe they are actually turnips. Colored with beet juice (home recipes seem to call for a wedge of beet in each jar) during pickling. But I agree that it's not shawarma without them. :)

              D'uh. Of course they are. I don't know why I said radish when I was thinking turnip. Thanks for setting me straight.
