Keyword calzone, Philly Cheesesteak
Servings 2 calzones


  • 1 lb deli ready pizza dough
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp cornmeal
  • 1/2 lb lean steak sirloin or rib-eye, thinly sliced
  • 1 small red pepper
  • 1/2 small yellow onion
  • salt
  • fresh ground pepper
  • 2 oz shredded Sharp White Cheddar cheese or Provolone if you prefer
  • Olive oil for brushing


  1. Preheat the oven to 400. If using pizza stone, place it in the oven while it's cold and heat it up at the same time.
  2. Make sure to freeze your steak for about an hour before cutting. (Freezing it will help cutting it thinly.)
  3. Slice partially frozen steak as thin as possible. Slice green pepper and onion thinly as well and set aside.
  4. Preheat some oil (about a tablespoon or two) in a medium frying pan, over medium heat and saute steak, peppers and onions with some salt and pepper until steak is no longer pink. Strain juice and set the mixture aside.
  5. Divide pizza dough in two halves. Roll out the dough but not too thin or it will rip.
  6. Spread some cheese in the center of calzones and divide Philly Steak mixture among them.
  7. Add remaining cheese on top and bring the edges of pizza dough together. Press the edges, sealing them well. You can also braid the edges or fold them in to secure the filling.
  8. Be careful and use oven mitts! Sprinkle the hot pizza stone with cornmeal and place calzones on top. Bake for 10-15 minutes, until golden brown.
  9. Once baked, brush calzones with some olive oil.
