This BBQ Philly Cheesesteak Pizza is made with homemade pizza dough, bbq sauce, thinly sliced beef, sauteed peppers and onions and topped with cheese! It’s a fun way to change up pizza night!

Pizza night is my favourite night.

We love making a double or even triple batch of this Easy Pizza Dough and doing up a bunch of pizza!

Since our kids love it in their lunches, I just wrap the leftover slices individually and we can pull them out for crazy mornings.

As much as we love your typical Hawaiian Pizza (the kids fave), this Chicken Alfredo Pizza, or this Taco Pizza, we love to mix things up every now and then!

This Philly Cheesesteak Pizza is so quick to throw together once the dough is made (or use store bought if you need!), and it disappears almost as quickly!

Ingredients in this Philly Cheesesteak Pizza:

  • Pizza Dough: I pretty much always use this Easy Pizza Dough, but there are times whenI need a shortcut and we grab some from one of our favorite bakeries. Homemade or store bought, we don’t judge!
  • Green peppers and onions: I like to saute my onions and peppers first to make sure they aren’t going to be too crunchy — it always builds flavor and even adds a bit of sweetness to the onions and mellows the flavor. You can skip this step if you like a lot of crunch (and raw peppers and onions!)
  • BBQ sauce: use your favorite! You can swap this for traditional red pizza sauce if you prefer, but we love the barbecue flavor on this one
  • Thinly sliced deli roast beef: I love using deli meat for quick meals! No pre-cooking, no slicing, just throw it on and you’re good to go. You can use leftover roast beef or cooked ground beef if you prefer
  • Shredded cheese: use mozzarella, cheddar, or your favorite pizza blend! We usually opt for mozzarella or a mix of both. You can even use sliced provolone if you want to take things up a notch.

BBQ Philly Cheesesteak Pizza

5 from 2 votes
All the flavours of your favourite Philly Cheesesteak sub in a homemade pizza with whole wheat crust. *Note: dough recipe makes 2 15″ pizzas, while topping recipe makes 1 15″ pizza. I’ve done this on purpose — add your own combination of toppings to the second crust or stick it in the freezer for a quick meal.

    Why is this called “Philly” cheesesteak pizza? In Australia Philly indicates Kraft Philladelphia cream cheese. Can you please indicate what type of cheese you are using for this recipe? Thanks. I love any of your recipes I have tried so far.

      I believe it — unfortunately my collection of cast iron is pretty sad. It’s something I’d love to expand though!

    Dude homemade pizza is my JAM. <3 So are cheesesteaks so I'm pretty sure I need to make this pizza immediately and eat it all. 😉 Amazing recipe, Ashley!
