Steak and Gorgonzola Pizza

Just like the other pizza recipe I just posted, this pizza was made from leftovers that I had on hand.  I like the pasta that I had the night before so I figured that it would be just as good on a thin, crispy crust of dough.  This is what happened:

Steak and Gorgonzola Pizza
1/4 portion Pizza dough
1 tbs olive oil
4 oz steak
2 tbs Alfredo sauce
1 cup spinach leaves
2 oz Gorgonzola cheese
1 cup mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

  • Preheat pizza stone in oven at 450 degrees.

  • Cook steak is cooked. Drain all grease.  Tear apart spinach.

  • Spread olive oil on round pizza pan. Dust with corn meal.

  • Roll out pizza dough thinly to the size of a round pizza pan. Transfer to pan. Drizzle with olive oil to lightly coat the top of the dough. Poke dough all over with a fork to prevent bubbling. Cook on pizza pan for about 7 minutes until firmed up.

  • Remove crust from oven and spread Alfredo sauce over crust, evenly. Add the Gorgonzola cheese. Add steak and spinach. Top with remaining mozzarella cheese.  Top with Parmesan cheese.

  • Transfer to preheated pizza stone. Cook for another 10 minutes until cheese is bubbly and starting to brown.

  • Remove from oven and cool for 3 to 4 minutes. Cut and serve!

  • This did turn out to be pretty good.  The wifey didn't care for all the spinach but I though it added great flavor to it.  Everyone has their own taste buds though, even though they might be wrong.  I can't wait to try out other recipes that I can whip together with the remaining pizza dough!  What is your favorite pizza?
