Donair Pizza

What makes the Donair Pizza so good? Well for starters it’s the Spicy Seasoned Meat with that Sweet Sauce, that is just an awesome combination. But to combine this into a Pizza and get the best of both worlds. Fantastic!

Then you get that donair sauce under the meat that takes on a new texture when cooked. For me, this is sought after. You won’t get that with fake donair sauce.

You will elevate this to a whole new level with a Mozzarella & Provolone Cheese Blend. The Cheese is absolutely the best with Donairs. Cheese and then more donair sauce to top it all off. Use a Cheese mix of a High Moisture Mozzarella Cheese often used in Restaurants, mixed with Shredded Provolone at a ratio of 3:1.

Authentic Halifax Style Donair Pizza

The Halifax Style is made from Halifax Style Donair Meat and Sauce on a Pizza topped with Cheese. Traditionally with Diced Onions and Tomatoes. Some people add lettuce.

I have heard stories of Cabbage or Spinach or whatnot added to the Pizza. This is not Authentic. As well as the meat. It must be Halifax Style Donair Meat & Donair Sauce.

Donair Pizza with Garlic Butter

Garlic Butter brushed on the Dough before saucing will add extra flavor and really up the Garlic taste that pairs up so well. Brush it on generously right out the to edge including the crust.

Toppings under or on top

Place the Cheese on top. Placing the Donair meat under the cheese protects the donair meat from overcooking and assist in keeping everything together when eating.

Place diced Onions & Tomatoes under or on top of the Cheese. Placing it under the Cheese will help keep everything together. More Onions & Tomatoes can be placed on top after the Pizza has cooked. Some will also add lettuce.
