What were these pizza like things?

We went to Germany and Austria a few years ago. We arrived in Munich after traveling all night. It was cold, rainy and miserable. We walked from the train station to our hotel and my teenage daughter had a total melt-down. (The type that only the parents of teenaged girls know all too well.) We settled into the hotel mid afternoon and my teenaged on and I went out searching for something to eat. We left my daughter crying in the hotel room. We came across a place that was sort of like a local pizza place here in NJ. They guy in the window motioned us in. We were a bit disoriented and not really sure how to order or anything, so we just pointed. My son had a flat-bread/pizza like thing topped with meat and cheese - the cheese was similar to feta. The meat was shredded/pulled but tasted like sausage. I had the same flat-bread/pizza crust topped with the feta-like cheese, lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes and a yogurt based salad dressing. I brought one of the veggie/cheese versions back for my daughter, along with some fruit from a local market. This pizza-like thing helped to make everything "all better" in a time of great distress (in the eyes of a teenaged girl.)

The area of Munich we were staying had a middle-eastern feel, but I do not know if it was Turkish or Iranian, or etc. for all I know it might have also been Greek or Russian. The letters on the signs were not the Western alphabet. Any ideas as to what this was that we ate and how I can duplicate it at home. It would be a nice surprise for my daughter's 21st birthday.
