Philly Cheesesteak Pizza Recipe
Homemade pizza is always a hit in our house, and with three growing teenage boys, it’s much more affordable to make pizza at home than to order from a local pizza place. They can each eat a large and sides on their own! We also enjoy making Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches, Philly Cheesesteak Potato Skins, and Philly Cheesesteak Sliders, so it wasn’t much of a stretch for us to try and make some Homemade Philly Cheesesteak Pizzas.
You can make the Homemade Pizza Dough from the recipe included below, of if you’re short on time you can also use store bought pizza dough. There are great options in the non-perishable sauce aisle, refrigerated area, and in the frozen foods section.
Homemade Philly Cheesesteak Pizza Dough:
In large bowl combine the yeast, sugar, and water. Let stand for 10 minutes or until foamy. Stir in the oil and garlic salt. Add 3 cups of flour and blend. At this point the dough should be soft and pliable. Slowly add more flour until it is no longer sticky.
Turn dough onto lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic. Place dough in an oiled bowl and turn twice to coat. Cover bowl with kitchen towel or plastic wrap and set in a warm place to rise for 90
minutes, or until dough has doubled in size. When dough is done rising, punch down and divide into two pieces. Roll each piece into a circle and place on pizza pan. Add Garlic Sauce, then add pizza toppings.
Bake at 450 degrees for 12-15 minutes.
Caramelize onions. Pour oil in pan on med-high heat.
Cook for 15-20 minutes until browned to taste.
Melt butter in same pan you browned onions in. Add in garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes. Add in flour, salt, and cream. Cook for 1-2 minutes more.
