August 6, 2010 in beef
I am obsessed with pizza right now. It’s like I’ve just realized that there are no limits to what goes on pizza and I’m really loving it.
I’ve been wanting to make a cheesesteak pizza for awhile but was worried how it would turn out. I had nothing worry about – this was so awesome! My husband raved and raved about it.
The Boursin cream sauce was so delicious but if you’re looking to lighten up a little, the Laughing Cow Garlic & Herb cheese would taste almost exactly like the Boursin. I’m sure it would work fine if you melted it in milk instead of heavy cream. You could also buy steaks and thin slice them but I wanted to take the quick and easy route with deli sliced roast beef. It was perfect, little work and lots of flavor! If you use the roast beef, it will shrivel up once it’s in the oven so top the pizza with more than you think you’ll need.
- 1 pizza crust, store-bought or homemade
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 2 green peppers, sliced

- 1 cup Provolone or Swiss cheese
- ¼ cup Parmesan
- 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
- Preheat oven to 425F.
- Sprinkle pizza pan with cornmeal. Roll and/or stretch crust out onto pan. Set aside
- Heat 1 teaspoon olive oil over medium heat. Saute peppers, onion, and garlic until onion is transparent.
- While peppers are cooking, warm heavy cream over medium heat. Add Boursin cheese, in pieces, and stir until cheese is melted.
- To assemble pizza, spread Boursin cream sauce over crust. Top with pepper mixture and roast beef. Sprinkle cheeses and Italian seasoning over top. Bake according to package instruction if using a store-bought crust or 15-20 minutes if using homemade.
