Steak Pizza on Garlic Bread Crust

by Jen on June 18, 2012

We don’t eat steak that often in our house, I’m just not a fan and neither are the kids.  This comes as a huge disappointment to my DH.  Fortunately for him, the only steak that I’ll even consider eating from time to time is flank steak.  I think I prefer it to regular sirloin steak because it’s meant to be sliced nice and thin and then served.

So I was thrilled when I came across Pioneer Woman’s recipe for a steak pizza.  I knew this would be a hit with DH.  Steak, BBQ sauce…can’t go wrong with those 2 items.  But I wanted to take this pizza over the top.



Not only did I want to cover this pizza in steak and BBQ sauce, but I wanted to add other favorite steak house foods such as sautéed mushrooms and garlic bread.

Mission accomplished.


Just look at those mushrooms and caramelized onions covered in melted cheese.  And the garlic bread crust?  Well…to die for.  I actually made this pizza for my birthday dinner.  My hubby was shocked that I wanted something with steak on it for my dinner.  But yes folks, this pizza is so delicious that even I could eat it every week!

Recipe adapted from The Pioneer Woman


  • 1 garlic bread pizza crust
  • 1 flank steak
  • 1 red onion, sliced thin
  • 10 - 15 mushrooms, sliced thin
  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 Tbsp balsamic vinegar, divided
  • 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 cups low-sodium marinara sauce
  • 3/4 cup light Tex Mex shredded cheese
  • 1/3 cup BBQ sauce


  1. Make pizza dough according to recipe instructions.
  2. Preheat oven to 425F.
  3. In a skillet, saute red onion in olive oil and 1 Tbsp balsamic over medium-low heat until dark and caramelized (about 10 - 12 minutes). Remove onion from pan and set aside. In same skillet, saute mushrooms until softened and turning brown. Remove from heat and set aside.
  4. In a small bowl, combine marinara sauce with remaining balsamic and Worcestershire sauce.
  5. Grill steak on BBQ or in a grill pan until desired "doneness" is reached.
  6. Spread marinara mixture on pizza dough. Top with caramelized onions and sauteed mushrooms. Sprinkle cheese over top. Bake pizza in oven for approximately 10 - 15 minutes, until crust is golden and cheese is bubbly.
  7. While pizza is baking, slice steak into very thin strips.
  8. Remove pizza from oven and top with slices of steak. Drizzle with BBQ sauce, slice, and serve!

You may be looking at this pizza and wondering if it measures up to The Fit Housewife’s healthy eating standards.  Actually, this pizza ain’t that bad.  The steak is fairly lean and I did use “low-fat” cheese and low-sodium pizza sauce.  The crust is the indulgent part.  But whatever.  It’s okay to treat yourself once in a while…it’s not like I’m eating this everyday (although I totally could!)
