When I was growing up, our favorite place to go with my dad was Jim’s Steaks on South Street in Philadelphia, PA. They had the best cheesesteaks. So whenever I pass through the city coming back from visiting my mother-in-law, I think of Jim’s cheesesteaks. The other day I was home thinking about what I wanted to eat. I had pizza dough out waiting to be cooked. And, while looking at it, I thought of a cheesesteak. Yummy, cheesy, cheesesteak. So, I decided I was going to make a cheesesteak pizza. With only the ingredients I had in my home, I rolled out the pizza dough and started. Here’s the recipe I used.
1 ball of pizza dough
3-5 oz of chip sirloin steak (thinly cut steak)
1 cup of tomato sauce
2 cup of mozzarella shredded
1 tsp of garlic /salt season(your favorite brand)
1 tsp of oregano (dried)
1/4 cup of sweet peppers (I used Whole Sweet Piquante Peppers)
Small amount of cornmeal to help pizza not stick to stone or cookie sheet
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
First, season the meat with a sprinkle of garlic salt. Then, cook the chip sirloin steak in a cast iron skillet. Using the tip of the spatula, scrape apart the meat to help cook quickly until 95% cooked.
Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels. Dry the meat and remove any excess fat. Then, cut into bite size pieces to help spread as a topping. Set aside.
Roll out the dough on a floured surface.
Now, add a sprinkle of cornmeal to the pizza stone or cookie sheet. This will help prevent sticking. Transfer the rolled out pizza to the cornmeal stone or cookie sheet.
To give the jarred tomato sauce more flavor, mix in the garlic salt seasoning and the oregano.
Then using a large spoon spread out the sauce on top of the pizza crust living a 1-inch edge.
Add shredded mozzarella to cover the top of the sauce.
Then, top with the cooked steak and the sweet peppers. Doesn’t it look yummy?
Now, cook for 20-25 minutes.
Let sit for a few minutes before cutting then enjoy.
Since the pizza has a lot of toppings, make sure you let it cool, so the crust hardens a bit. Then transfer to a cutting board and cut into squares or triangles whichever you wish.
