I’ve been on a mini vacation and I have taken this time to eat some of the best food Las Vegas has to offer.
I will be sharing a few of these delicious meals I’ve experienced over the next week, all recreated my way!
Today I start off with my Grilled Steak Pizza with Spicy Roasted Garlic Chimichurri Sauce.
I went to an Argentinian restaurant and they had some of the best steak I’ve ever eaten and they served it with a big cup of chimichurri sauce.
They also included fresh baked bread to dip in the chimichurri sauce.
I decided to take this dish and turn it into a pizza and I also kicked up my chimichurri sauce with the addition of roasted garlic and a Serrano pepper.
I marinated my steaks, grilled them up and then used Naan flat bread as a pizza crust.
All done and ready to eat, I also served an extra side of chimichurri sauce for dipping.
This dish is a real winner, and so simple to put together, it’s a new family favorite.

Coat steak generously with seasoning blend, cover and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour or overnight if desired. Bring steaks to room temperature prior to grilling.
Heat grill and cook steaks 7-8 minutes per side. Allow steaks to rest 5 minutes before slicing thinly.
To prepare chimichurri sauce, add all ingredients into a blender and blend well. Cover and set aside until ready to use.
To assemble steaks, drizzle olive oil over flat breads and grill for about 3 minutes per side. Top grilled flat bread with cheese and steak.
Place assembled pizzas on grill and cover grill with lid until cheese melts.
Drizzle chimichurri sauce over steaks and serve warm.
