BUT LIKE, street tacos. Street steak tacos. Steak street tacos. You on board?
In all my years of food blogging, this might be one of those times where I genuinely wish I could e-funnel just a tiny slice into your gaping-open mouth via some magical loophole in monitor portals. Because THIS PIZZA. I have no idea how it happened. But it happened.
And you’re probably like, “That steak looks overdone, Bev.” Listen, it’s perfect. But I’ll get to that.
And you’re probably like, “Raw white onion makes me a hurl fountain.” Listen, it won’t. But I’ll get to that.
It’s fairly simple when it’s all said and done, but you can totally take short cuts if you want. The majority of the legwork is up front, with the dough making, the steak marinating, the roasted garlic sauce making, the searing, then the assembling. WHICH OKAY, IT SOUNDS like a lot of work, but it ain’t bad, y’all. This is why wine exists.
I felt that mental fist bump.
If you’ve not tried this pizza dough recipe yet, DEW EET. It’s easyeasyeasy, and tastes ridiculous.
So once you’ve roasted your garlic, you’ll squeeze the cloves into a food processor and add about 1/3 cup of milk and a pinch of salt. WHIZZZZZ until it’s all smoothy smooth. If you need to thicken it, throw it in a tiny sauce pot for a second. Otherwise, go ahead and brush it over your pizza dough! You like where this is headed, don’t you?
Also, I don’t know why I’m showing you a blank pizza crust.
POLL:::::: when the pizza dough has been rolled out, but not yet baked, do you call this pizza dough? Or pizza crust? Like the above? Not yet baked, so is it a crust? But it’s rolled out, so is it a dough?
These are the things I think about.
Roasted garlic sauce, seared and sliced steak, aged white cheddar. You know, the good things in life.
Also! You’ll notice I seared the steak about medium rare, knowing it would cook more in the baking. And you might think, that’s going to overcook, dude. It really doesn’t! Once sliced super thin, and blanketed under that cheese, it just melts into the pizza. I’m telling you, you’ll cry for a month.
Once out of the oven, garnish up, street taco style! Diced white onion, cilantro leaves and tiny cubes of avocado. I know the avocado’s not 100% authentic, but my raging soul fairies within governed that move, so take it up with them.
Uggggh, the sauce with that white cheddar? Insane. The steak with that yeasty pizza crust? Ridic.
And you know what, load it up with more steak if you want! MORE ONION IF YOU CAN HANDLE IT.
Lastly, squirt some lime juice over that whole mess and watch your life become something you never thought it could.
Isn’t there some game on this weekend that you need to watch while eating this? I’m pretty sure there is.
GET IN THAT.
If you’re not emotionally abused after eating this, what are we even doing here?
