Dorm Room Dinner: Philly Cheesesteak Pizza

Print Friendly and PDF

There are a lot of things John misses about Maine; that’s the unfortunate thing when you live in once place for over 20 years.  You start to count on your favorite things being around.  Case in point is pizza.  Now at least, I have gotten him to fully admit that the pizza in NY is miles better than anything he could get in Maine (that was an argument I don’t even want to get into with you all!). 
But there is one pizza that he really craves and for whatever reason, we just can’t find it around here.  Philly Cheesesteak.  Not just any Philly Cheesesteak Pizza (of course, because nothing’s ever easy), it has to be this certain pizza with a blue cheese dressing sauce and layers of steak, red onions, and cheese.  You can only hear about these lamenting so many times before you just cave in and agree to make it!

So there I was on Friday, thinly slicing steak and John was next to me shredding cheeses.  And I realized that one of the most fun parts about both of us living here is that we really do enjoy ourselves – we have fun just about anywhere but where we connect most of all is in the kitchen (no surprise).  Best of all, we sat down to ate the pizza and John proclaimed it almost “spot-on” to the original.  
Philly Cheesesteak Pizza
Serves:  4
8 ounces steak
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons black pepper
1 red onion
1 pizza dough
1 cup blue cheese dressing
1 cup cheddar cheese
1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese

Preheat the grill to medium heat.  Season the steak with salt and pepper.  Slice the onion into thin rings.  Grill steak 8 minutes per side and onions 2 minutes, per side.  Let the steak rest for 5 minutes and then thinly slice the steak.

Preheat the Roll out the pizza dough and spread blue cheese dressing over it.  Top dressing with half of the cheeses and then steak and onions.  Top with remaining cheeses.  Bake for 15 minutes, until cheese is bubbly and dough is cooked through.  Cut into 8 slices and serve immediately.

Until the next time my oven is on...

  2. Love the new look Dani! I think it is so wonderful that the desire for the familiar got you two in the kitchen cooking together. I'm sure you do that all of the time but it just added such a sweetness to your story. By the way, I'm trying this pizza! Anything with blue cheese sauce has to be great.

  3. New York is the best for pizza and Philly is the best fr cheesesteaks. Around here you can get cheesesteak anything....cheesesteak eggrolls, pizza, Stromboli and even cheesesteak pretzels! Pizza looks great. I know my hubby we'd love this.

  4. I never had a cheese steak pizza but I love the idea of it! It's something different - I get tired of eating the same old pizza. You too sound so cute together!
