Steak Pizzaiola Pizza

Steak Pizzaiola Pizza
Recipe type: Pizza
  • 1 14-inch pizza shell
  • ½ pound boneless sirloin or top sirloin or flank steak
  • 1 cup tomato puree or all-purpose ground tomatoes
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ tablespoon (or to taste) crushed red pepper flakes
  • 8 ounces shredded mozzarella and provolone blend
  1. Grill or pan-fry steak until it is a bit less than medium-are (if you can, save any juices that the steak throws off).
  2. Slice ⅛-inch thick, then cube each slice.
  3. Set aside.
  4. Combine tomatoes, garlic, oregano, basil, olive oil and red pepper flakes.
  5. Add some of the juices from the cooking of the steak, if available.
  6. This is your sauce.
  7. Spread it on the pia crust.
  8. Lay the slices of steak on top of the sauce.
  9. Sprinkle on the cheese blend.
  10. The deal here is to allow chunks of the steak to show through the cheese after the bake.
  11. A variation to the steak pizzaiola recipe goes like this: Same size pizza shell. Same pizza sauce.
  12. Additions include thin slivers of roasted yellow and green bell peppers.
