Recipe type: Appetizer
  • All-purpose flour, for surface
  • 2 tbsp. vegetable oil, divided
  • 2 medium bell peppers, thinly sliced
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
  • ½ lb. skirt steak, thinly sliced
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 lb. pizza dough
  • 1 c. shredded provolone
  • Extra-virgin olive oil, for brushing
  1. Preheat oven to 500° and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat 1 tablespoon oil. Add peppers and onions and cook until soft, 5 minutes. Remove from pan and reserve on a plate.
  2. Return skillet to heat and heat remaining tablespoon oil. Add steak in a single layer and season with salt and pepper. Cook until steak is golden and seared, about 2 minutes per side.
  3. Divide dough into 4 equal pieces. On a lightly floured surface, roll one piece of dough out into an 8” circle, about ¼”thick. In center, top with steak and peppers and onions, then sprinkle with cheese. Gently fold dough in half and crimp edges all around. Repeat with remaining dough.
  4. Transfer to prepared baking sheets. Brush tops with oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Using kitchen scissors or a sharp knife, slit tops in 2 to 3 spots to create steam vents.
  5. Bake until tops are golden and filling is bubbling, 15 minutes, brushing with more oil halfway through.
  6. Let cool 5 minutes before cutting open.
