Everything you love about Philly cheesesteaks on a pizza

This might not be a traditional Philadelphia meal, but we took all that cheesesteak deliciousness and threw it on a pizza.

Cheesesteak pizza

Cheesesteak doesn’t just have to piled high on a sandwich roll. I’m a huge fan of this pizza because it gives you all the cheesesteak flavor but in an easier-to-eat form. The addition of Velveeta is a nod to the classic Philly cheesesteak which is often sold with a drizzle of Cheez Whiz. Trust me, if you’re looking for something new this is the pizza for you.

Philly cheesesteak pizza recipe

Yields 1 (12 inch) pizza


  • 1 pound pizza dough, store-bought
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup sliced bell peppers, any color
  • 1/2 cup sliced yellow onion
  • 1/3 cup pizza sauce
  • 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 4 ounces thinly sliced Velveeta cheese
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced steak, raw


  1. Let the pizza dough sit until room temperature. This helps so the dough will stretch without shrinking back up.
  2. In a large skillet set over medium heat, add olive oil. Once the oil is hot, add in bell peppers and onion. Sauté until soft.
  3. Prepare a baking sheet with a Silpat liner. Stretch out the dough to create a 12-inch circle, or, if it’s easier, you can shape it into a rectangle.
  4. Spread the sauce onto the dough, leaving a 1-inch crust around the edge. Sprinkle on the shredded cheese, add sautéed peppers and onions and top with Velveeta slices.
  5. Lay out thin slices of steak to the top of the pizza. They will fully cook in the oven.
  6. Bake for about 18 minutes until the steak is fully cooked, the cheese is lightly browned and the dough is cooked.
  7. Let rest for 3 minutes and slice.
