Is It Pizza Or Is It Salad?

A couple of weeks ago I told you I would tell you how to make the arugula steak pizza I had pictured in my Sprucing Up An Outdoor Living Space – Part Deux post and today I will deliver.  (No, I will not deliver the pizza itself, just the recipe.  Although I do accept tips ;-))  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Homemade pizza is frequently found at our dinner table, but Heather Bullard’s (a person that inspires us) recent homemade pizza post motivated me to venture a little bit outside of my comfort zone.  We had some leftover steak in our refrigerator (a rarity) and I wanted to see if I could successfully incorporate it into a pizza.  I’d personally never had steak on pizza before, but I think it’s safe to say it was a hit since there was very little left over.  Victory!

Now, I’ve been using the word “pizza” to describe the deliciousness pictured above, but I have to share with you that one of our readers thought the pizza was a salad at first glance. A very valid thought since it is topped with arugula!  This got my wheels turning and made me wonder if it could be both a pizza and a salad?!?!  Wishful thinking on my part I’m sure, but you will get a nice serving of greens when you eat this pizza.  

A pizza, steak, and salad combo all rolled into one – now that is what I call a win-win-win situation!  Here’s how you can make one of your own and no, you are not obligated to share.

Ingredients
  1. 1 envelope active dry yeast (2 1/4 tsp)
  2. 1 cup warm water
  3. 2 1/4-2 3/4 C flour
  4. 1 tsp salt
  5. 3 Tablespoons olive oil, divided
  6. 3 garlic cloves, minced
  7. 1/2 medium red onion, sliced
  8. 4 oz grilled steak of your choice
  9. 4 ounces crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
  10. 4 cups loosely packed arugula
Instructions
  1. Combine water and yeast, stirring until dissolved.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together 2 1/4 C flour and salt.
  3. Add water and yeast mixture to flour and stir until well combined. Let the dough rest 10 minutes.
  4. On a floured work surface knead the dough for approximately 10 minutes. Gradually work in flour until the dough is no longer tacky and form into a ball.
  5. Coat dough ball with 1 Tablespoon of olive oil, place into a clean bowl, and cover with plastic wrap or a clean kitchen towel. (Be sure your bowl is large enough to allow the dough to double in size.)
  6. Leave bowl in a warm place for approximately 1 hour.
  7. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  8. Form or roll out dough onto your favorite pizza dish (mine is the Pampered Chef Rectangular Pizza Stone) or baking sheet. Randomly poke a few holes in dough with a fork.
  9. Place dough in the oven until lightly golden brown (approximately 7-10 minutes).
  10. While your crust is baking, heat remaining olive oil in a pan over medium heat and add garlic and onion. Saute until soft and golden brown.
  11. Remove pizza crust from oven and top with all the yummy stuff in your saute pan - oil, garlic, onions.
  12. Add steak slices and sprinkle with Gorgonzola cheese.
  13. Return pizza to oven for approximately 5-10 minutes to melt the cheese and warm the steak.
  14. Remove from oven, top with arugula, and devour!
Notes
  1. If you don't have the time or desire to make your own pizza crust, fresh store bought dough is a great alternative.
