Warm steak, gooey cheese and bell peppers come together to create this Italian Cheese Steak French Bread Pizza!
Happy Monday, my friends! I’m really excited to share today’s recipe. This French bread pizza is beyond words delicious. 🙂 I love to use French bread for pizzas, especially on week nights. It is such a time-saver and they always taste delicious!
This Italian Cheese Steak version is my new favorite. It has all the elements of a classic Italian cheese steak, but in French bread pizza form! Think steak, cheese and bell peppers tossed in creamy Ragù® Cheese Creations Classic Alfredo Sauce baked on French bread. Mmmmmm!
I absolutely LOVE to use Ragù® Sauce in my recipes! My Mom used Ragù® Sauce all the time when I was a kid! They have a delicious taste the whole family will love. Because of the history I have with their sauce, I’m so excited to be a part of the Ragù® New Tra Dish challenge! I mixed and matched two classic Ragù® recipes, Italian Cheese Steak Sandwiches and Three Cheese Pizzas and turned them into this Italian Cheese Steak French bread pizzas! A New Tra Dish, if you will!
I knew the Ragù® Cheese Creations Classic Alfredo would be amazing on top of this French bread pizza, and yep, I was definitely right! 🙂 It gave the pizza a great creaminess and rich flavor. Once it was out of the oven, we dug right into it. It stood no chance with us!
This recipe was ready in about 30 minutes! Perfect for those busy weeknights, or when last minute guests come over to watch a game! Everyone will love this pizza!
Start by sautéing sliced red bell peppers in some olive oil.
Once bell peppers are crisp-tender, add the sliced steak. Cook until steak is browned, then pour in half of the Ragù® Cheese Creations Classic Alfredo!
Spread the remaining Ragù® Cheese Creations Classic Alfredo over the 2 pieces of French bread, then top it with that luscious meat mixture…
Cover it with mozzarella and olives and pop it in the oven!
Slice it up and serve! 🙂
