Flank Steak & Blue Cheese Pizza
1 12" Boboli® Original Pizza Crust
1 tbsp. grill seasoning
1/2 lb. flank steak
2 tbsp. canola or vegetable oil
2 tbsp. fresh rosemary or 2 tsp. dried rosemary
1/2 c. prepared basil pesto
1 1/2 c. mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/2 c. blue cheese, crumbled
Preheat oven to 450° F.
Bake time: 10 – 12 minutes
Rub the grill seasoning over both sides of the flank steak. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the flank steak to the skillet and sear for 7 – 8 minutes on each side. Remove the meat to a cutting board to rest. While the meat rests, finely chop the rosemary and mix it with the pesto in a small bowl. Spread the pesto mixture onto the crust, leaving a 1" border around the edge. Slice the flank steak against the grain into 1/4" thick strips. (Meat will be slightly pink in the center and will continue cooking in the oven.) Layer the steak, Mozzarella and blue cheese over the pesto and bake for 10 – 12 minutes until cheese is bubbly and crust is golden brown.
For 8" pizza crust, use 2/3 ingredients.
Preheat grill for 10 – 15 minutes on medium-high heat. Please follow any safety instructions provided by your grill manufacturer prior to grilling. If you have a gas grill, turn off one of the burners. If you use charcoal, push charcoal to one side. Brush a dash of olive oil (or melted butter) on each side of your Boboli® pizza crust. Place the crust on the side of the grill with the burner turned off or without the charcoal. Grill the crust 2 – 4 minutes per side. Remove from grill. Add toppings, including any pre-cooked meats and vegetables and return to grill for 8 – 10 minutes. Grill until the cheese is melted (if applicable) and the crust is golden. Remove from heat, let cool for 2 minutes, and enjoy!
