Quick Philly Cheese Steak Pizza January 30, 2012

I came up with this in a mad dash to put something together for dinner, in order to avoid spending money on eating out once again.
With an upcoming weekend to Atlantic City I feel the need to save money.  However, coming up with this wasn’t particularly easy due to dwindling groceries at the end of the month.  In fact I was all but ready to give up on cooking dinner, until I realized I had a Pillsbury Pizza Crust in the fridge, and some left over Steak’ums type meat in the freezer.  Spaghetti sauce leftover from the other night worked perfectly for the pizza sauce.  Basically it was a quick, throw everything into a pan, and then onto the crust to bake type of dish.  Took me just a little over 15 minutes to pull together 🙂

For details on how to pull together this quick meal…

Quick Philly Cheese Steak Pizza

Ingredients:

  • Pizza crust (you can do homemade, but for time sake Pillsbury does the trick)
  • Roughly 1/2 a pound of thin sliced beef (like I said a package of steak’ums works great)
  • 1 Green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 – 1 onion, chopped
  • Pizza or tomato sauce (basically enough to cover your pizza crust)
  • Grated Parmesan Cheese (light sprinkle, optional)
  • Cheese topping of choice (I ended up with a mix of pepper jack and Monterrey jack as that was what I had left in the fridge)

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
While oven is preheating you can chop up your veggies and heat up a little olive oil in a saute pan on medium high – high heat.
Pre-bake the pizza crust for 5 minutes on a greased cookie sheet or pizza pan.
While crust is baking saute the pepper and onion together, and crumble/break apart the steak’ums slices into the pan.  Cook together until the meat is no longer pink.  I added a bit of steak seasoning to my meat/veggies, but you can season as you like.
By this time the crust should be ready, so take it our and spread a thin layer of sauce and a light sprinkling of parm cheese.  Then simply top with the meat/veggie mix followed by the cheese.  Bake in the oven for an additional 10 minutes, and you are good to go!
