Philly Cheesesteak Pizza

This recipe was made last night.  And was supposed to be posted last night.  But this happened:

Just kidding.¬† I actually had a huge migraine when I got home from my clinical, but managed to throw the pizza together since most of it was already made.¬† I had promised this pizza to Fritz for two days, so I didn’t want to go yet another day without delivering (get it?¬† delivering? pizza? yeah…).¬† But by the time it came to posting, I just couldn’t do it.

So here it is, a day later and, happily, headache free.

Philly Cheesesteak Pizza

  • 1 recipe for pizza crust (this¬†is my favorite recipe and makes enough for three pizzas)
  • 1-2 T steak sauce of choice (A1 would be good, I used Worcestershire)
  • 2 medium onions, sliced thinly
  • 3-4 oz steak, sliced thinly (I used leftover flank steak)
  • 1/2 C shredded mozzarella cheese

Preheat¬†the oven to 450 degrees, with the pizza stone inside for at least 20 minutes (no pizza stone?¬† Use the back of a baking sheet!).¬† Meanwhile, slowly caramelize¬†the onion over medium heat–you can add a teaspoon full of sugar if you want.¬† I used red onions and I would have liked them to be a bit sweeter!¬†

On a piece of parchment paper, stretch out the dough to about a 10′ circle.¬† Spread with the steak sauce, and top with the caramelized¬†onion and steak.¬† Finish off with a sprinkle of cheese, and a little salt and pepper.¬† Bake on the pizza stone for about 15 minutes, until the cheese is browned and the crust is golden.

You should probably brush the edges with olive oil, but I forgot and the world didn’t end.

Fritz was a huge fan of this pizza–which is not at all surprising.¬† Total man pizza.

I sprinkled mine with a bit more Worcestershire¬†sauce.¬† As a side note, I would like to know how something spelled “Worcestershire” is pronounced with only three syllables.¬†

Something is totally wrong there.

I am in the process of slow cooking some apple butter right now, and it should be¬†all done and ready for eatin’ by tomorrow morning.¬† Have a nice night (wine or not!).

Oh, and check out some of these beauties from our garden:

    I’m a pizza fanatic who tends to stick pretty close to traditional toppings, but I’m beginning to feel the pull of non-trad toppings now that I see your pizza loaded with caramelized onions and steak. Looks delish!

      It’s always fun to mix it up!

    Love your site and this recipe looks awesome!! as a fellow migraine sufferer (over 30 years) ask your Dr. about Maxalt – it totally gets rid of them, regardless if you catch it right away, or wake up with it, in about 45 minutes without any of the weird side effect feelings the others cause (except a tingling nose feeling, for the first few minutes)

      Thanks! I actually used to take Maxalt and LOVED it…such a wonderdrug! My doctor said they were nervous about me taking it so often and was trying to find the source of the migraines…though honestly I get them a lot less now so I should probably talk about using it again!
