Steak Gorgonzola Flatbread
How many of you like pizza time? We absolutely love it here at the Beisers’. It’s always fun making that pizza with all the family around in the kitchen. Though it’s very satisfying and rewarding to roll your own pizza dough and create pizza from scratch, sometimes you just crave that pizza night without spending an hour in the kitchen.
Flatbread is your answer, my folks. You can create some amazing, super delicious pizza experiences with those flatbreads you see all the time in grocery stores. All you need to do is heat them up a little bit in your oven till they become a little toasty, and they are ready for toppings. Life can’t get much easier and tastier!
What is Flatbread?
Flatbread is a bread made with flour and salt along with water, milk, yogurt, or other liquid. It is then rolled into flattened dough. Many flatbreads are unleavened, although some are leavened, such as pizza and pita bread.
Flatbreads range from below one millimeter to a few centimeters thick, so that they can be easily eaten without being sliced. Pizza flatbreads, pita bread, even naan bread makes an excellent base for any kind of pizza you have in mind.
What Steak to Use
The beauty of this flatbread pizza is that you can use any steak you prefer. Once it’s cooked, all you have to do is cut it into thin strips.
We personally like ribeye, New York strip, flank steak, sirloin, or even top round. You can cook the steak with just salt and pepper, or add some seasonings to it for a little bit more flavor. Our Montreal steak seasoning would be so great for any steak. Other choices would be marinades like carne asada or chimichurri.
Like mentioned above, leftover steak from a previous meal is great on this flatbread too.
- Store bought flatbread or pizza shell
- Steak – We used New York strip today but you can use any other steak of your choice.
- Olive oil
- Mushrooms – sliced.
- Small red onion – sliced.
- Cherry tomatoes – halved.
- Red chili flakes – just a pinch.
- Gorgonzola cheese
- Salt – to taste.
How to Make Steak Gorgonzola Flatbread
1. Prepare the flatbread: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place the pre made flatbread/pizza directly on the middle rack in the oven and cook for 4-6 minutes, until the crust is slightly toasted.
2. Prepare the veggies: Heat olive oil in a pan and sauté mushrooms for 3-4 minutes until they start to release the juices. Add red onion, red chili flakes and salt and cook for another 3-4 minutes, till most of the juices evaporate.
3. Cook the Steak: Grill or pan sear the steak to your desired doneness. Times will vary according to cut and thickness, but you will want the temperature on an instant read thermometer to read:
- Rare: 120°F
- Medium Rare: 130°F
- Medium: 140°F
- Medium Well: 150°F
- Well: 160°F
After cooking, cover with foil and allow to rest 5-10 minutes.
4. Assemble the flatbread: Top the flatbread with sautéed mushrooms and onions, followed by steak. Add on cherry tomato halves, and top it with arugula and gorgonzola. Serve immediately.
Other Topping Options
Bell peppers of different colors would give some more color and will complement the steak well.
Olives, artichoke hearts, sun dried tomatoes, roasted bell peppers, sautéed spinach or pickled jalapeños all sound great.
- Play with different cheeses. Instead of gorgonzola, you can try goat cheese, feta cheese or even mozzarella cheese.
- Try adding some base sauce on the flatbread like pesto sauce, cream cheese or even regular pizza sauce for a different flavor profile.
