Chorizo Flatbread

August 16, 2012

A few weeks ago we gathered with good friends for a casual Friday night dinner party. Tom and Maureen always entertain with such ease and style, I usually leave with a great take-away. This flatbread has not left my mind since. The combination of garlic aioli, greens, parmesan, and chorizo is amazing. Buying Trader Joe’s pizza dough is a huge time saver and works so well on the grill.

chorizo, thinly sliced (approximately 20 slices)

parmesan cheese, shaved

mixed greens of baby arugula/ baby kale  (tossed with lemon juice and olive oil)

garlic aioli (recipe below)

Preheat grill and spray with oil. Roll out dough on a floured work surface. Brush both sides of dough with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill dough for a 2-3 minutes per side until cooked through. Place flatbread on serving platter. When flatbread is at room temperture, spread on garlic aioli, place greens, shaved parmesan and finally top with chorizo.
