Ingredients and substitutions
- Flatbreads – use store-bought flatbreads or a pre-made pizza shell.
- Sirloin steak – look for a one-inch thick steak for the best results.
- Gorgonzola cheese – the closest substitute is blue cheese, but feta cheese or goat cheese will work just as well for this recipe.
- Red onion – red onions are the best option for this recipe. Feel free to leave them out entirely.
- Mushrooms – you can use cremini mushrooms, brown mushrooms or pre-sliced baby Bella mushrooms. If you’re in a pinch, canned mushrooms will also work.
- Red pepper – use any bell pepper colour of your choice.
- Arugula – baby spinach, dandelion greens, radicchio or watercress can be used in place of arugula for this flatbread.
- Salt & pepper – to taste.
What is flatbread?
Flatbread is a thin bread that's been rolled into flattened dough. It's no more than a few centimetres thick and it's typically unleavened, which means it's made without yeast (unlike traditional pizza dough and pita bread). Fun fact: it's thought to be one of the earliest types of bread ever made!
Is flatbread healthy?
Flatbread is definitely one of the healthier types of bread. It generally has less calories, less fat and more fibre. Check the nutritional information on the various types of flatbread at the store to make sure you're getting the healthiest version.
Storing and reheating
If you have any leftover slices of flatbread, you can store them in the fridge for up to 3 days in an airtight storage container.
The best way to reheat them is by placing them on a baking sheet and heating them in the oven at 350°F until warmed. This will ensure that the crust remains crisp and the toppings are heated. You can also reheat the flatbread slices in the microwave for 2-3 minutes, but the crust will likely be soggy.
Freezing this dish
This flatbread is definitely freezer-friendly! Flatbreads freeze really well – all you have to do is assemble your flatbread as instructed, leaving out the cheese and arugula, then place them in the freezer instead of the oven!
Flatbread will last in the freezer for up to two months, making it an easy make-ahead dinner idea! Imagine all the money you'll save on last-minute pizza delivery orders when you have a delicious flatbread ready for you in the freezer. If you plan on freezing the flatbread, make sure to wrap it in plastic wrap or in a freezer bag (toppings side up) and store it in the freezer.
When you're ready to enjoy your dish, remove the plastic wrap and pop the flatbread into the oven directly from the freezer. Keep your flatbread in the oven 15-20 minutes. Once it's cooked, add the arugula and cheese and enjoy!
