Two things I was craving for dinner the other day were steak and a salad. Rather than choosing between the two or having both separately, I decided to give them try in the form of a grilled pizza.
I figured the extra chunky blue cheese dressing I had in the fridge would be a perfect addition to the combination. And it did! The meal was hearty and filling all at the same time. Best of all, I was able to keep all the cooking heat outside while my house stayed nice and cool.
- 3 cups romaine lettuce, rough chopped
- ¾ cup cherry tomatoes, halved
- 2 (4-6 oz) sirloin steaks
- 1 (14 oz.) can pre-made pizza dough
- 2 Tbl. olive oil
- 1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
- salt and pepper
- Preheat the grill to a medium high flame. Season both sides of the steaks with salt and pepper. Cook the steak on the grill for 2-3 minutes on each side to desired temperature. Cooking time depends on the thickness of your steaks. Cover with foil and allow to rest before slicing.
- Meanwhile, unroll the pizza dough and brush both sides with olive oil. Cut the dough in quarter squares to make it easier to handle. Reduce the flame to a medium temperature. Gently lay the dough on the grill. Cover and allow to grill for 2 minutes. The dough should be slightly puffed and can easily be removed. Flip the dough and evenly distribute the shredded mozzarella cheese. Cover and cook for an additional 2 minutes. Remove from the grill.
- Slice the steak against the grain and on a bias. Evening distribute between the grilled pizzas. Toss the lettuce and tomatoes in the desired amount of dressing. Evening divide the salad on top of the sliced steak. Serves 4 people.
