Grilled Steak Avocado Flatbread

Grilled Steak Avocado Flatbread

There’s been a subtle shift in the weather the past few days here in the Bay Area. It’s taking longer for the fog to burn off in the morning and there’s a slight chill in the air.  I’m not ready for this shift. I  want to hold onto to Summer for as LONG AS POSSIBLE. I feel like I didn’t have enough outdoor eating time the past few months What gives??!

I was gifted a gigantic flat of avocados by the California Avocado Commission (THANK YOU!!) last week and couldn’t imagine a better way to celebrate other than having a leisurely Sunday BBQ at my house.  The stars aligned and my friend Gaby (author of Absolutely Avocados) stopped by with her husband for a late lunch this past weekend and I made this Grilled Steak & Avocado Flatbread with my Apple Avocado Salad and Spiked Blueberry Lemonade.  I also made an awesome dairy-free chocolate pudding (with avocados!) that I’ll share next week.  As you can imagine, it’s avocado central in my house right now.

For this flatbread, I used my favorite no-knead pizza dough.  The dough gets grilled, avocado gets smashed on top followed by grilled steak, charred onions and juicy roasted tomatoes rest on top. I finished with a healthy squeeze of fresh lime juice to add a nice tang.  It’s like avocado toast meets pizza meets fajitas. In other words, it was GOOD.  I felt good to impress such an avocado aficionado

And we’re off!

The first thing to do is get your dough ready.

I always use this no knead pizza dough recipe. It’s my favorite.

  • An hour or so before grilling, take skirt steak out of the fridge.
  • We’re going to season with a healthy dose of sea salt, pepper and garlic powder. I like to keep it simple.
