Philly Cheesesteak Pizza  

As prepared by Bev Cooks

What you are seeing is not a figment of your imagination.

Have you ever put a cheesesteak on your pizza?

You should put a cheesesteak on your pizza.

Let me tell you about putting a cheesesteak on your pizza.

A) There's thinly sliced flank steak involved. I know you technically use, what, sirloin on a cheesesteak? You're totally allowed to do that if you want! I just chose flank because the breezes of my inner energy pool blew me in that direction.

B) There are sliced onions and green bell peppers involved. I mean, how yummy does that sound?

C) There are earthy, delicious sliced mushrooms involved.

D) There are strips of provolone cheese involved. On top of everything. All melted and bubbly and magnificent.

All of this, on top of a pizza. HA-BAM.

Put a cheesesteak on your pizza.


Searing steak

Alright, start by searing your steak! A few minutes on each side, bam. Let it rest, boom.


Searing onions and peppers

Then back in your pan, sear the onions and peppers. Delish.


Searing mushrooms

Then those mushrooms. Oh my face.


Slicing steak

Then slice your steak as thinly as you can!


Spreading pizza sauce over prebaked Pillsbury pizza dough

While this is all going on, you'll prebake your Pillsbury pizza dough for 8 minutes. Then spread some lovely pizza sauce over the dough. Yes.


Layering onions, peppers, mushrooms and meat

Then you just layer! Onions, peppers, mushrooms and meat. Oh my?


Adding cheese on top

Then the cheese. Have the mercy.
