PHILLY CHEESE STEAK PIZZA is packed with steak, peppers, onions, and loads of cheese. This low carb pizza helps keep pizza night fun and flavorful without resorting to delivery!
I’m back with another pizza recipe for you!
As you might have noticed, my family has a thing for pizza. We eat it at least once a week, usually on Friday nights.While the classic fathead pizza topped off with cheese and pepperoni is a regular in our house, we like to liven things up and get creative too.
My buffalo chicken pizza is a huge hit here and now this Philly cheese steak pizza is too!
It’s hard to go wrong with pizza!
We’re using fathead dough for the base. You’ve probably seen it around before if you frequent low carb sites. It was made popular a few years ago and now there are versions of it alllll over the internet. It’s popular for a reason and that reason is that it’s DANG GOOD. 🙂
How to make Philly cheese steak pizza:
The dough for this pizza comes together fairly quickly with a mix of cream cheese, mozzarella, egg, and almond flour.
Roll it out between some parchment paper and bake it for about 10 minutes to let the crust firm up a bit.
When it’s time to top the pizza, you’ll want to cook up some thinly sliced steak. I used ribeye, but you can use a cheaper cut if you prefer.
Cook the steak until it’s just browned on the outside. It’s going in the oven too, so you don’t want to turn it into leather. 😉
After the steak is browned, toss some onions and peppers in the hot skillet and let those soften and brown a bit.
For the sauce, I’m using cream cheese. Just plain old cream cheese. It’s creamy, rich, and perfect for this!! Have faith.
Pile on the steak, veggies, and a little more cheese. Shredded provolone is good, if you can find it. Mozzarella works well too.
Pop this back in the oven for another 10 minutes or so to melt the cheese and finish off the crust and then it’s time to dig in!
