Quick and Easy “Philly” Cheese Steak Pizza

At this time of year, as in right on time for Valentine’s Day, thinly sliced beef for Chinese fondue can be found absolutely everywhere… and it goes for a very decent price too, so it’s a good time to stock up!

This kind of beef is a really neat thing to have in the freezer, I swear.

Why? Well, for starters, the slices are always made from a very lean cut of beef, so that makes it a very convenient and quick way to get access to tasty lean protein.

Secondly, it thaws in no time at all and cooks in even less time!

Thirdly, it’s incredibly versatile. You can use it for sooooo much more than just fondue, you know.

You can actually whip up a myriad of quick dishes with this kind of meat, from pasta to omelets, to pizzas and sandwiches. I think my favorite of all would be a Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich.

I recently was in the mood for one, probably because one of my co-workers had been eating one right before my very envious eyes, so I had decided that I was gonna fix myself one at home. But then I saw these beautiful Whole Grain Tandoori Naan Breads at the grocery store and got an instant, crazy craving for one so I just had to buy them.

No biggie, I’d only need make my sandwich into a pizza instead. I’m sure it wouldn’t mind!

In fact, it didn’t mind at all… and what a great call this was!

Wow! For sure, this is a new favorite of mine, I can tell you that! Talk about a perfect quick fix for whenever pizza cravings strike and I’m in a pinch.

Now, since I had no cream cheese that I could use on hand, I decided to use Greek yogurt and Meaux mustard instead. Honestly, I think it was even better! I really appreciated the extra little zing that this combination brought to the whole experience.

Seriously, this was one yummy pizza guys. And I think that it takes less time to make than a frozen pizza, only it’s so much better.

It’s pizza you can afford to make on a week night…

It’s also the kind of meal that you can very well have the the little ones help with…

But mostly, this is the kind of dish that you can whip up in a pinch when the big game is on!

It’s super healthy, but no one will mind… not even the guys! In fact, they’ll probably ask for more, so you might want to make a couple extras…

Besides, I’m pretty sure that, just like any pizza, it’ll be just as good the next day, right out of the box fridge!

Nutritional Information based on 1 pizza

Quick and Easy “Philly” Cheese Steak Pizza

INGREDIENTS

    For each pizza, you will need:
  • One Whole Grain Naan Bread
  • 2 tbsp fat free plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp whole grain Meaux mustard
  • 1 tsp za'atar (you can sub oregano or any other dried herb)
  • 125g thinly sliced lean beef (for Chinese fondue)
  • 125g mushrooms, sliced
  • 50g light Mozzarella cheese, grated
  • A handful of fresh arugula leaves
  • A handful of fresh sprouts (I used daikon)

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat your oven to 475F
  2. In a hot non-stick pan, cook the mushrooms until they are slightly golden on both sides, about 2 minutes total. Remove from pan and set aside.
  3. While the mushrooms are cooking, pile your slices of beef into 2 or 3 piles and slice them into thin strips. Seperate the strips and throw them in the pan after you have removed the mushrooms. Cook the meat until it becomes nice and golden, about 2-3 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, spread yogurt and mustard on top of the naan bread and sprinkle za'atar all over.
  5. Add the mushrooms, cooked beef and finally, grated cheese.
  6. Throw your pizza on a cookie sheet and cook it in the oven for about 5 minutes, until the cheese melts and starts to turn golden.
  7. Sprinkle arugula and sprouts over your pizza, cut into slices and enjoy while it's still hot!

    wow this looks great! We don’t have thinly sliced beef for Chinese fondue readily available here, but I have an eye of round in the freezer, or I could use the shameful Steakum, which was a staple for me growing up, as my mom just wasn’t a cook. The whole grain naan looks like the same stuff I get at – unbelievably-my local Wal-mart, which usually has nothing good or interesting (whine whine whine). I live in a rural area where white bread is the most popular starch consumed and fries are the veg of choice.

    definitely gonna try this!

    • says

      Funny, I had never even heard of Steakum before yet it was a staple in your household. I think I would stick with the eye of round. That would be a very good choice for a lean cut of beef and it would work very well with this pizza. Just make sure you cut it nice and thin. Does Walmart sell food where you are, too? Here, we can now buy groceries, including fresh produce, at our local Walmart. I often go there to get my spinach and spring mix as it costs a fraction of the price and is just as good.

      And seriously, what a shame about the white bread and French fries… white bread shouldn’t even exist, if you ask me. As for French fries, well, they’re a great treat to have once in a blue moon!

      Hope you like this little pizza if you give it a try (and by all means, please use the real beef!) ;)

        steakums are in the frozen food section- probably better that you haven’t heard of them. Anthony Bourdain makes fun of them from time to time on his show. Our wal-mart does sell food, but for some reason the produce is awful! I really hate that store, but it is our closest shopping option.

    Hi Sonia,

    This pizza looks YUMMY and amazing! I like your idea for using greek yogurt and mustard on the naan bread. I don’t have a naan bread at home but I just made whole wheat sourdough pizza dough! I will definitely try this recipe sometime soon! Thanks for sharing :-)

    Yuko

    Hi Sonia ,
    I recently found out the I have type 2 diabeties and the other night my 22 year old son was watching me test my blood sugar. He asked me to check his just out of curiosity , and it was 375!!!!! Of course as his mother I wanted to bring him to the emergency room and him being 22 , was going to have none of that. Now he is going through the process of mourning the foods he loves and cheese steak is something he really loves. I saw this recipe and thought that this might satisfy his desire for the two million calorie normal version. I was wondering what the serving size is for the nutritional facts that are listed. Thank you !!!!

    • says

      Yikes! I know nothing about blood testing, but 375 sounds pretty high indeed. Big number!

      I have no doubt that this pizza will satisfy the craving. Sure did the trick for me. And wait ’til you see the other one I have in store: a ground beef and green olive pizzeria style pizza. It’s just like the real deal, I swear. It should be up on the site within a week or two.

      As for the nutritional value of this one, the information would be for the whole pizza, as stated right above the recipe. ;)

      Thank you very much !!!! I didn’t even notice it there….. I’m defiantly going to give this a try !!!!!

    I love this idea! The addition of arugula and sprouts is just so wonderful too. Making this the next time we have some leftover steak or roast! I’ll probably add some grilled onions as well. Yum!

    • says

      Funny… I hesitated a long time as to whether I was gonna add onions or not to this pizza. I finally opted them out, but I think caramelized onions would be a wonderful addition indeed! I might very well add them the next time I make it! :) Hope you like, Laura!
