I never would’ve thought Alfredo sauce would be the secret to perfect Philly Cheesesteak flavor! Unfortunately, my attempts at making Cheesesteaks in the past have fallen short; but this recipe is a step in the right direction! Any normal family could probably get by with only one pound of meat, but bumping up the protein content is a necessity in this household. Also, the stew meat can be substituted for any good cut of beef. Stew meat was on sale this week, and tastes the same as ribeye when fried in butter! I borrowed the idea of “sliced cheese under the ingredients” from the local pizza shop here in Evansville called Azzip, and they are certainly onto something!!
- 2 lb. beef stew meat, cut into smaller bites
- 1/4 c. Dale’s Steak Marinade4 Tbsp. butter, divided
- onion, sliced
- 2 bells peppers, sliced
- 8 oz. sliced mushrooms
- 1 tsp. minced garlic
- 1 c. light Alfredo, divided
- 2 tsp. Nature’s Seasoning
- 12 muenster cheese slices
- 2 refrigerated Wewalka”Bistro Style Pizza Dough (Thin and Crispy Crust)”
- 2 c. shredded mozzarella cheese
- Marinate the beef with Dale’s in a gallon sized ziplock bag for approximately 15 minutes (do NOT exceed 30 minutes or the beef becomes mush).
- Preheat over to 450*.
- In a large iron skillet, heat 2 Tbsp. butter and brown beef until cooked through; transfer to a separate container/plate and set aside.
- In the same skillet with beef drippings, melt 2 more tablespoons of butter and cook the onions, peppers, mushrooms, and minced garlic until translucent.
- Spray two cookie sheets with nonstick cooking spray and arrange pizza crusts into two rectangles to cover the bottom of each pan. Spread 1/2 c. Alfredo sauce onto both pizzas. Lightly dust with Nature’s Seasoning if using “Light Alfredo” for flavor enhancement. Place 6 slices of Muenster cheese evenly and in a single layer on top of the Alfredo. Next, evenly distribute the beef and veggies over the top of the cheese layer.
- Sprinkle 1 cup of cheese over the top of each pizza and bake for approximately 12-15 minutes until the crust is lightly toasted on the bottom and the cheese is bubbly and brown on top.
Yields 2 pizzas, 8 slices each.
Eat, Bork, and Be Merry!
