Ingredients in Homemade Doner Kebab Roll (Kebabrulle)

homemade doner kebab roll kebabrulle ingredients mise en place
  • Pita Bread — we use a Lebanese style pita bread, that we use kitchen scissors to cut around the circumference, in half. This reduced the amount of carbs in the bread by half, since it is only half of the bread! You can use the bread as is, without cutting it if you don’t mind it whole. Other styles of pita breads can be used, it’s totally up to you whichever you prefer!
  • Kebab Meat — pre-cooked from our Instant Pot doner kebab meat recipe.
  • Lettuce — sliced iceberg or romaine lettuce leaves.
  • Tomato — sliced thinly in rounds.
  • Cucumber — sliced thinly in rounds.
  • Onion — sliced red onion, white or yellow onion can also be used.
  • Kebab Sauce — follow this easy kebab sauce recipe!
  • Hot Peppers — hot banana pickled pepper rings.
  • Pickled Chili Peppers — Lombardi peppers are the pickled chili peppers that are commonly served with kebab. But if you can’t find them, pepperoncini peppers are a good substitute.

Lower Carb Bread Option for Kebab Roll (Kebabrulle)

We help the carb situation out by cutting our Lebanese style pita bread in half (it’s still the same sized round circle, but without the pocket). Only do this if you are going to enjoy the kebab roll right away, the bread won’t hold up if stored for a long time with sauce.

We cut the pita with kitchen scissors around the circumference to make two pitas out of one, and reduce carbs by half (16g net carbs instead of 32g).

This is certainly optional, and this type of pita is already a little lower in carbs than some other bread choices.

But, if you are interested in lower carb meals, you can always try it and see if it works for you. Otherwise, use the whole bread without cutting it.

Maybe, enjoy half of the kebab sandwich now and save the rest for later. The kebab roll is a hefty meal in itself, and especially with filling low carb cabbage pizza salad as a side dish.

We liked how the kebab roll with less bread made the flavor of the meat, toppings and sauce more prominent.

What To Serve With Homemade Doner Kebab Roll (Kebabrulle)

  • Kebab Sauce — you’ll love to have plenty of kebab sauce to use in the kebab roll and serve on the side.
  • Kebab Shop Turkish Red Cabbage Salad — a low carb, satisfying side dish with finely shredded red cabbage and a tangy lemon dressing
  • Swedish Style Pizza Salad — cabbage pizza salad, similar to coleslaw, but with a light dressing. It’s filling and makes a perfect side dish for kebab.
  • Lemon Lentil Soup — red lentils cook up into the creamiest soup with a tangy lemon flavor.
  • Air Fryer French Fries — these crispy, easy fries are better for you than their store bought counterparts. If you love fries with kebab, you’ll want to check out this doner kebab plate (kebabtallrik) asap!

Preparation and Storage Tips

These kebab rolls (kebabrulle) are best consumed when made, but they are good for about a day in the fridge.

Make a double batch and keep kebab meat (whole or sliced ready to go) in your freezer, to thaw out quick when you need it!

We used to keep precooked and pre-sliced store bought gyro meat in our freezer, but have since replaced those with our healthier, homemade recipe.

But the concept is still the same. Pack up the sliced precooked meat, lay them flat in the freezer bag and they’ll thaw quickly.

Toss the kebab slices into a fry pan and cook a few minutes on each side until they’re a nice golden color.
