Summer Ground Beef Guide- Cheesesteak Pizza

Cheesesteak Pizza

The Dough


2 tsps active dry yeast

1 tsp sugar

1 1/4 cup warm water (105-115 degrees F)

3 1/3 cup all-purpose flour

1 1/2 tsp kosher salt

3 tsp olive oil



1. Dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water.  Let stand until foamy.

2. Add to the mixer: flour, salt, and 2 tsp olive oil.

3. While mixer is running, slowly pour in yeast mixture to combine.  Mix until a ball forms. Process a minute or so longer to knead dough. Dough should be slightly sticky.

4. Make a ball and coat dough with olive oil.  Place in a large bowl and cover with plastic wrap.  Let rise until double in size, about 1 hour.

5.  Remove to a lightly floured surface and roll dough to desired size. 


The Pizza


1 lb Ground Beef: cooked and seasoned with garlic salt, lemon pepper, onion powder, Worcestershire sauce, and red wine vinegar

Sauce: 1/2 stick butter, 2 Tbsp flour, 1 cup milk, 3 minced garlic cloves, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp pepper, 1/8 tsp nutmeg, 1/2 cup parmesan cheese 



Optional Toppings: Mushrooms, Green Peppers, Grilled Onions



1. Make sauce: Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in the flour and let cook for 1 minute.  Whisk in milk. Add the garlic and seasonings. Allow the sauce to come to a gentle simmer. Remove the sauce from the stove; whisk in the parmesan cheese.

2. Heat grill to High.  Bring toppings to grill side. (We are cooking outside tonight!)

3. Roll out pizza dough in personal size rounds.  Brush with olive oil on all sides.

4. Place one side on grill for a few minutes until bubbles form and nicely browned.  Flip over dough, add sauce, ground beef, and cheese to cooked side of dough.  Cook a few minutes longer until everything is nice and melted.  Take off grill to cutting board.  Slice and serve with a fresh garden salad!

Note: A great use for ground beef, but if you feel like getting a little fancy, thinly slice a Rocking R Steak to kick it up a notch! Or add both for the meat lovers!
