I'll be honest, "Philly Cheesesteak Pizza" doesn't really involve steak. But that's the good thing! This recipe is much less expensive, and just a bit healthier. Homemade pizza is a the closest thing to fast food our family comes these days.
This recipe serves 2-4, and has a cost of about$3 per person (or less)! Start, to finish, you can have dinner on the table in about 20 minutes. Because it is "open faced" you'll save on the extra bread that comes with a true cheesesteak sandwich.
1 Boboli pizza crust (or other pre-baked crust), 12 inches in diameter.
1 pound ground beef
1 yellow onion, sliced thin and separated into rings
1 green or red bell pepper (optional), cored and sliced into 1/4" slices
2 c. shredded mozzarella cheese (or pizza blend cheese)
Salt and pepper to taste
Brown the ground beef in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir and cook about 5-6 minutes. Add onion and pepper. Cook another 3-4 minutes. Make sure no pink remains with the beef. Drain the fat. Season with salt and pepper.
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Take the pizza crust and place on a baking sheet. Top with the beef mixture, then sprinkle with cheese. Bake for 8-10 minutes.
Don't worry that there is no "sauce" with this pizza. You won't even miss it.
Enjoy a great Philly Cheesesteak Pizza dinner tonight!
