Philly Cheesesteak Pizza is a hearty pizza made with steak, cheese, peppers, and onions.

Philly Cheesesteak Pizza - The classic sandwich in pizza form!

When I first moved to Lancaster, PA, my husband, who lived for several years in Philadelphia, introduced me to one of his favorite sandwiches: cheese steak.

We had talked about making a cheesesteak pizza for a while, and after a very cheesy miscalculation on our first attempt a couple of months ago (one whole pound of American cheese, to be exact!) we finally perfected our recipe.

Philly Cheesesteak Pizza - The classic sandwich in pizza form!

This pizza doesn’t use any tomato sauce, but a light mayonnaise base to keep everything from getting too dry and provide the classic cheese steak taste.

Our first attempt involved American cheese, for its nice melting properties, but it ends up browning very dark in the oven, so we switched to a mix of provolone and mozzarella that turned out very well.

We used our favorite sweet onions, chopping them fresh instead of sauteing or caramelizing them, and added some nice colorful pepper strips. Some people will argue that pepper strips don’t belong on a traditional cheesesteak, however we love the color and flavor they add to the pizza.

I usually have some some of a my standard pizza dough in the freezer, so the most time consuming part of this meal is slicing the steak, but if you have a handy helper, or can get it pre-sliced, this pizza comes together in about 20 minutes.

    I was just in Philly last week on business, and I miss the cheesesteaks already … what a fabulous idea to put the toppings on a pizza!

    I will be making this soon!

    Your pizza looks awesome! I need to try this sometime! We used to live in the Philadelphia area for a couple years and miss those cheesesteaks now!! We used to take lots of trips to Lancaster too, what a beautiful area! 🙂 Thanks for the pizza inspiration! 😉

    This looks yummy! I have had philly cheesesteaks on the brain lately thinking about different things I could do with them. We make tortilla pizzas on the grill and think this would be awesome on them.

      Thanks for commenting! I’m all for going the extra mile when the results will be amazing, but in this case I chose to use mayonnaise based on its use in the traditional Philly Cheesesteak. If white sauce makes you happy, use it 🙂

    At first i was thinking eewww.. mayonaise. But I just made this pizza and it is AWESOME!! I think next time i will add 1/4tsp seasoned salt with the mayo, to kick up the flavor a little. But other than that it was so good!!
