Game Day Philly Cheese Steak Pizza-Pizza of the Month!
I only added a few more seasonings to it and yes, a serious drizzle of Sriracha, his favorite hot sauce on top of the crust before I added toppings. We love Philly Cheesesteak sandwich and I thought why not try making a pizza with those same toppings? I used chicken instead of beef and mushrooms in the pizza sauce. The taste was just awesome. I know I will be making this pizza more often now.
Philly Cheese Steak Pizza
1 pizza base
1-1/2 cups marinara sauce
1 cup mushrooms, sliced and sauted
1 medium onion, sauted
1 each medium green and red pepper, sliced
2-3 cups shredded chicken(Optional)
1 roasted garlic head
2-3 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
6-8 provolene cheese slices
1-2 tbsp olive oil
Heat the oven to 425° F.
Drizzle oil on top of pizza base.
Smear the base with roasted garlic.
Spread marinara sauce on top of it.
Spread the base with all the cheeses.
Now arrange chicken, onion, mushrooms and peppers strips on cheese.
At this point, you can sprinkle Italian seasonings, dry basil or garlic powder to your liking and Sriracha sauce if you like it hot!
Bake in hot oven for about 30 minutes or the base is nicely golden brown.
Cut into wedges and serve.
