Chimichurri & Flank Steak Pizza

I feel like it's been forever since we posted a pizza, not since before we moved to California (unless you count this cauliflower crust one, which was good, but I wouldn't consider it a true pizza).


Dustin had this brilliant idea to use chimichurri as the sauce for a pizza, so we basically turned this favorite burger of ours into an Argentinean-inspired pizza.


Chimichurri (by far the best version we've ever made...loved the addition of lime to the mix) along with manchego cheese, a little bit of burrata, red onion, sliced garlic, and seared flank steak cooked to a juicy medium-rare combine to make a delicious pizza.


Bella is begging to try an exotic cheese!
