Grilled Philly Cheesesteak Pizza
Philly Cheesesteak Pizza, cooked on the grill with fresh herbs, an insanely good Dijon-garlic-horseradish cream sauce, and juicy steak, is summer perfect.
For the Dijon-Garlic Pizza Sauce
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1 tsp Dijon mustard
- 1 tsp whole grain mustard
- 1/2 tsp prepared horseradish
- 2 cloves garlic minced
For the Pizza
- 1 prepared pizza dough see Notes
- 1/2 lb mock tenderloin steaks see Notes
- kosher salt
- fresh cracked pepper
- 1/2 yellow bell pepper seeded and sliced into thin strips
- 1/2 green bell pepper seeded and sliced into thin strips
- 1 tomato seeded and diced
- 1 cup mushrooms sliced
- 1/2 Vidalia onion thinly sliced
- 2 Tbs heaping fresh oregano, chopped
- 2 Tbs heaping Italian flat-leaf parsley, chopped
- 2 cups Italian blend shredded cheese
- 1 cup whole milk mozzarella cheese thick shred
Grill the steaks
Heat grill to high heat.
Let the steaks come to room temperature. Season generously with salt and pepper. Grill to RARE, ~60-90 seconds per side. (see Notes)
Set the steaks aside to rest at least 5 minutes.
Make the Dijon-Garlic Pizza Sauce
Heat a nonstick pan on medium-high heat. Add the cream, Dijon, whole grain mustard, garlic, and horseradish. Add a pinch of salt and pepper. Using a rubber spatula to stir often, cook until the cream is reduced by half. Set aside.
Make the pizza
Slice the rested steaks into very thin strips. Using a sharp, straight-edge knife works best, rather than a serrated knife.
Assemble all the ingredients in little bowls to take out to the grill: sauce, peppers, tomato, mushrooms, steak, cheese, herbs.
Roll out the pizza dough. Put on the grill (using a rolling pin helps for transport of the dough to the grill) and cook a minute or so until lightly browned on the under side.
Flip the dough, and, working quickly, add the toppings in the following order: sauce, peppers, tomato, mushrooms, steak, cheese, herbs.
Close grill and cook 2-4 minutes until crust is crisp, cheese is melted, and toppings are heated through. Serve.
Prepared pizza dough is available in most grocery store bakeries. Or you can make your own, such as my Sam Adams Beer Pizza Dough.
Mock tenderloin are tender cuts similar to filet mignon, but much more affordable. If not available, use another tender cut like ribeye.
When grilling the steaks, we want them very rare because they will finish cooking later on the pizza.
