Steak, Peppers, Onions Pizza Recipe

Last summer I created a delicious grilled steak pizza. I was reminded of it while Andrew was grilling steaks for dinner one night, and quickly convinced Andrew to save some steak for a repeat of that delicious pizza.

I marinated the steaks in a similar homemade teriyaki marinade that I used last summer. It consists of soy sauce, brown sugar, vinegar, olive oil and minced garlic. This marinade is super easy to make and tastes fantastic on beef or chicken. After snatching some steak from the grill I sliced it into bite sized pieces, along with peppers and onions. Andrew has been craving pepper jack cheese lately and I thought it would go great on this pizza. I threw everything on top of a layer of marinara sauce, then baked it for about 10 minutes.

Pepper jack cheese was definitely the right choice for my Steak, Peppers and Onion pizza recipe. The kick of the cheese complimented the juicy, savory flavors of the teriyaki sauce on the steak. Another great summer steak pizza has joined the list!

California Burrito Pizza Recipe

Sacramento, CA
If you walk into Adalberto’s Mexican Food in Sacramento, CA and order a California Burrito you might be surprised when you take your first bite. What makes a California Burrito different from any other burrito you ask? In addition to beans, salsa and cheese, you’ll find streak and french fries. Genius!
Our friend Lauren calls Sacramento home and she grew up enjoying this west coast guilty pleasure so we invited Lauren to indulge in my California Burrito Pizza recipe.
I started by  seasoning the strip steak with garlic salt and pepper. Then grilled it. After pre-baking the dough, I spread on a mixture of salsa and marinara, sprinkled on Mexican cheese, the beans and the steak. Prior to assembling the pizza, I baked the french fries to make sure they got crispy. After adding the other toppings I threw on the french fries and another sprinkling of cheese. I knew Andrew and I would love this pizza. It was a burrito with french fries made into a pizza; come on now. But I was looking forward Lauren’s opinion since she has had the real deal. She loved it too. She did comment that mine tasted healthier, less greasy than the typical Adalberto’s California burrito. This pizza was so good I think I may need to take a trip to Sacramento to try the original!
