Eat This! Healthier Beef Gyro from Food Network

I just made a new discovery. I’ve been receiving emails from food network but I did not know they had a healthy section. As they say, healthy food does not have to be boring. I agree and they have several great recipes. They also have a section for special diets that includes gluten-free vegetarian and others. This particular recipe caught my attention because I love gyros. I wish it could be lamb me but I may substitute soy crumbles, ground turkey, or ground chicken. How would you tweak it?

Beef Gyros
Units: US | Metric
1 (8 ounce) container plain yogurt
1/3 cup chopped seeded cucumber
2 tablespoons finely chopped onions
1 garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon sugar
1 lb lean ground beef (I use ground turkey)
1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon salt (optional)
3/4 teaspoon pepper
4 pita breads
3 cups shredded Lettuce
1 large Tomato, chopped
1 small onion, chopped

In a bowl, combine first 5 ingredients.
Cover and refrigerate.
In separate bowl, combine ground beef and seasonings.
Mix well.
Shape into 4 patties.
Grill, covered, (you can also use a toaster oven or broil these) over medium to high heat for 10 to 12 minutes or until meat is no longer pink, turning once.
Cut patties into thin slices.
Stuff into pitas.
Add lettuce, tomato, and onion.
Serve with yogurt sauce.
