Week 39: Steak & Gorgonzola Pizza

Steak & Gorgonzola Pizza Recipe

Okay- it’s time for me to admit it- I am pizza obsessed.  Ever since discovering the pre-made pizza dough at Trader Joe’s, I keep fantasizing about my next pizza recipe.  This next pizza recipe blows the socks off any combination I could ever order at Pizza Hut, and probably any pizza or flat bread recipe I’ve posted on BB&B.  It’s the perfect recipe to grill up at a weekend BBQ or a fast and easy dinner on a week night.  Enjoy the flavorful steak, paired with creamy cheese and crisp greens.  I dare you not to eat a second piece of pizza.

Steak & Gorgonzola Pizza Recipe

10 oz. New York strip steak
4 Tbsp olive oil, divided
2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
1 Tbsp minced garlic
1/2 lb. pizza dough
Flour, for work surface
1/2 cup shredded Fontina cheese
1/2 cup shaved Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup Gorgonzola
Handful of arugula
Balsamic Glaze

Steak & Gorgonzola Pizza Recipe

If using marinade, mix 2 Tbsp olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, dijon mustard and garlic and marinate steak in refrigerator for at least 1 hour and up to 24 hours.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Heat 2 Tbsp olive oil in saute pan over medium-high heat. Add steak and cook 5 minutes on each side for medium-rare. Remove from heat and allow to rest while making pizza.

Roll pizza dough to a thin crust on a floured work surface. Brush with olive oil, transfer to cookie sheet or pizza stone, and bake in oven until slightly golden, about 10 minutes.

Remove crust from oven, sprinkle with Fontina and Parmesan. Add about half of the Gorgonzola in large chunks. Return to oven and bake until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted. Meanwhile, slice the steak.

Remove from oven, add sliced steak, remaining chunks of Gorgonzola, and arugula. Drizzle with balsamic glaze.
