Lower the heat to medium (or 400 degrees) and cook for an additional 30 minutes or until the outside is browned and the inside has reached an internal temperature of at least 165 degrees. Then, turn the heat off and allot the meat to spin for an additional 15 minutes. the internal temperature should be 175 degrees. Carefully remove the meat and allow to rest, covered, for 10 minutes. Slice and assemble the pita wraps with some tzatziki, sliced tomato, and sliced onion.
