Cheese "Steak" Pizza
Almost as easy as having pizza delivered to your door—and no tipping the delivery person! A ready-made pizza crust, topped with familiar cheese steak sandwich fillings, makes a quick and easy main dish kids and adults alike will enjoy. Serve with a simple tossed green salad and a cool beverage for a complete meal.
1 pound ground beef
1 small onion, sliced thin, separated into rings
1 small green or red bell pepper, cut into thin strips
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 (16-ounce) package thick pre-baked pizza crust (12-inch)
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
- Preheat oven to 400°F (205°C). Brown ground beef in large nonstick skillet over medium heat 6 minutes. Add onion and bell pepper; cook until beef is not pink and vegetables are crisp-tender, breaking beef up into small crumbles. Pour off drippings; season with salt and pepper.
- Place pizza crust on baking sheet. Top with beef mixture, then cheese. Bake in 400°F oven 8 to 10 minutes or until cheese is melted.
Makes 8 servings.
