Steakhouse Pizza

I've done pizza with chicken, ground beef, pepperoni, chorizo and shrimp, so I thought it was time to do one with a little steak.  Ok, ok, in all honesty, I was trying to figure out what to do with a small 5oz steak I had in the freezer, when I stumbled upon this recipe from Ree, The Pioneer Woman.  Oh, her pizza looks so much more photographically (I hope that's a word) perfect than mine.... but I can guarantee mine tasted just as good... if not better!

Steakhouse Pizza
Adapted from The Pioneer Woman
Printable Recipe 
1 5-6oz steak
salt and pepper
1 Tablespoon steak sauce
1 cup pizza sauce
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 Tablespoon unsalted butter
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
1/2 sweet onion, chopped
1 jalapeno, sliced (remove seeds for less heat)
10-12 oz ball of pizza dough
8 oz fresh mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced

Preheat grill to 400 degrees.  Clean and oil grill grates.  Season the steak with salt and pepper and brush with steak sauce.  Place steak directly over the fire and grill for 4-5 minutes per side.  You want the steak to still be rare to medium rare - you do not want to over cook it... remember it will cook more once it's on the pizza.  Remove and allow to rest while you get everything else ready.  Once ready, thinly slice the steak against the grain.

In a measuring cup or small bowl, mix together the pizza sauce, 1 teaspoon balsamic and the Worcestershire sauce.  Cover and set aside.

In a skillet, over medium low heat, add the butter and 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar.  When butter has melted, add the onions and slowly caramelize.  This will take about 20 minutes.  Add the jalapeno and saute for 3-4 minutes or until the jalapeno has softened.  Remove from heat.

Stretch pizza dough to desired size and shape.  I place mine on a piece of aluminum foil sprayed with cooking oil, so it makes easy going once it's on the grill.  Place on grill that is at about 350 degrees F and let one side of the dough become slightly golden brown (about 3 minutes).  Remove from grill and flip the dough over.  Spread the sauce over the cooked side of the dough.  Top with thinly sliced steak and the onion/jalapeno mixture.  Place the slices of mozzarella on top and place back on the grill for about 3-4 minutes.  Move to indirect heat and continue to grill until the cheese has melted.  Remove from grill and drizzle with more steak sauce if desired.  Serve and enjoy!

Photographically sounds good to me. :) Man this pizza sounds and looks great. Love the Worchestershire and balsamic combo.

Of course photographically is a word! Just like deliciously and spectacularly and way-better-than-Ree's-ly. I'll take yours any day, Jenn.

This sounds and looks delicious. I was just craving steaks last week too. If I'd found that steak in my freezer, I just might have cooked it for myself and made pasta for the rest of my crew. :P Your idea is much better!

Chris said...

Yeah, I'd be all over that!

I have never put steak on a pizza; but that is definitely going to have to change. This looks really good!
