*This recipe requires a Spring form baking pan.
1 small fresh green bell pepper, seeds removed and thinly sliced
1/2 cup yellow onion, thinly sliced
1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbs. olive oil, divided
Dash sea salt and ground black pepper
13.8 oz. tube of pizza crust *see tip below
10 slices provolone cheese
3/4 Lb. thin-cut eye of round steak, cut into thin strips
1 cup your favorite pizza sauce (I use jarred Classico)
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Grease the inside of a spring form baking pan.
In a large pan, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat. Add peppers, onions, mushrooms, garlic, salt, and pepper, and saute until tender. Transfer mixture to a bowl and set aside.
Using the same pan, add another tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. Add steak and cook just a few minutes, until meat is no longer pink and is tender.
Roll out pizza dough to a 12-inch diameter. Lay dough inside the bottom of the spring form pan, pressing dough 1-1/2 inches up the sides.
On top of dough, layer cheese, steak, then pepper/onion mixture. Pour sauce over top and spread to cover. Top with another layer of cheese, being sure to cover all of the sauce (about 5 slices).
Bake, uncovered, 20-25 minutes, or until cheese is melted and crust is golden brown. Let it set 5 minutes prior to cutting. Run a knife along the edge of the spring form pan to loosen the crust, before releasing the ring.
Tip: You can substitute the pizza dough for any homemade pizza dough recipe. Just increase your cooking temperature to 450 degrees F for 20-25 minutes.
