Grilled Steak Pizza

One usually thinks of baking a pizza in the oven and not on a grill but this grilled steak pizza recipe is so simple to make.   Grilling is a great way to get the same smokey taste that you would find in using a wood burning oven.  If queso fresca cheese is not a favorite cheese of yours, then use mozzarella, jack or provolone.   Our thanks to culinary.net for sharing this great grilled steak pizza recipe with us.

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 pounds sirloin steak
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 13.8 ounce tube pizza dough

  • 1/4cup salsa verde
  • 3 tablespoons freshly chopped cilantro
