Steak Lover’s Pizza

"Grilled pizza with a topping of grilled steak, peppers and onions will please the meat lovers at your next tailgate or backyard barbecue!"

Prep time: 20 minutes Cook time: 20 minutes Serves: 8


1 pound boneless beef sirloin steak

4 teaspoons McCormick® Grill Mates® Montreal Steak Seasoning

1 medium onion, sliced crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick slices

1 red bell pepper (or yellow bell pepper), cut into 2-inch-wide strips

1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon olive oil, divided

2 cups shredded Monterey jack cheese, divided

1 pound fresh pizza dough or frozen dough, thawed, or 1 prepared thin pizza crust (12-inch)

Sprinkle both sides of steak with 3 teaspoons of the Montreal Steak Seasoning. Brush vegetables with 1 teaspoon of the oil. Grill steak over medium heat 5 to 7 minutes per side or until desired doneness. Grill vegetables 6 to 8 minutes or until tender-crisp. Cut steak and vegetables into bite-sized pieces. Mix cheese and remaining 1 teaspoon seasoning in small bowl. 

Stretch or roll pizza dough on floured baking sheet to a 12- to 14-inch round, about 1/4-inch thick. Brush top of dough with remaining 1 tablespoon oil. Place, oiled side down, on the grill. Close lid. Grill over medium heat 1 to 2 minutes or until grill marks appear on the bottom of the crust. Carefully flip crust over using tongs or spatula. 

Layer crust with 1/2 of the cheese, grilled steak, vegetables and remaining cheese. Close lid. Grill 3 to 4 minutes longer or until cheese is melted and crust is browned. Check pizza often to avoid burning. Rotate pizza, if necessary.

Slide pizza onto baking sheet. Slice and serve immediately.
