  • Yield: Serves 4 (serving size: 2 wedges)
  • Hands-on:30 Minutes
  • Total:30 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces flank steak, halved lengthwise
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper, divided
  • Cooking spray
  • 12 ounces refrigerated fresh pizza dough
  • 1 tablespoon cornmeal
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 1/3 cups vertically sliced onion
  • 1 green bell pepper, cut into strips
  • 1 orange bell pepper, cut into strips
  • 5 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons lower-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup 1% low-fat milk
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 2 ounces reduced-fat extra-sharp cheddar cheese, shredded (1/2 cup)
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • Smoky Haricots Verts and Mushrooms

Preparation

1. Place a pizza stone or heavy baking sheet in oven. Preheat oven to 500° (keep stone or baking sheet in oven).

2. Heat a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle steak with 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add steak to pan; cook 4 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Remove from pan; let stand 5 minutes. Cut steak across the grain into very thin slices.

3. While steak cooks, place dough in a medium microwave-safe bowl coated with cooking spray. Cover and microwave at MEDIUM (50% power) for 45 seconds. Let stand 5 minutes. Roll dough into a 14-inch circle on a floured surface; pierce liberally with a fork. Carefully remove pizza stone from oven, and sprinkle with cornmeal. Arrange dough on pizza stone. Bake at 500° for 10 minutes or until browned and crisp.

4. While crust bakes, return skillet to medium-high heat. Add oil; swirl to coat. Add onion and bell peppers; sauté 3 minutes. Add garlic; sauté 2 minutes. Add steak; sauté 30 seconds or until thoroughly heated. Remove from heat; stir in remaining 1/2 teaspoon black pepper and soy sauce. Arrange steak mixture over crust.

5. Combine milk and flour in a 4-cup glass measuring cup; stir with a whisk until smooth. Microwave at HIGH 2 minutes or until thickened, stirring every 30 seconds. Stir in cheese and remaining ingredients. Drizzle cheese mixture over pizza. Cut into 8 wedges.
