What Kind of Meat Do You Use for Philly Cheesesteak?
When making the sandwich, ribeye steak is the most popular. Sirloin steak can also be used. For making this pizza, though, I have used quality roast beef deli meat.
When making pizza, you want to keep your toppings light. You don’t want too much weight since that will hinder baking the crust all the way through. Shaved roast beef is perfect for pizza.
To make the deli meat more authentic to Philly cheesesteak, you can saute it a little in order to make the classic crispy edges.
What Sauce Is On Philly Cheesesteak Pizza?
The toppings are really easy. You’re working with sauteed onions, bell pepper and roast beef. Then, you spread over the shredded cheese.

The sauce is really the secret ingredient here. It’s a bit like a highly-seasoned barbecue sauce. And, it’s got the tiniest bit of kick to it.
It’s my secret ingredient to the best Philly Cheesesteak Pizza! It’s definitely a contender to my other favorite pizza sauce in this Cordon Bleu Pizza with Creamy Dijon.
Which Toppings Go On Philly Cheesesteak?
I’ve used bell peppers and onions. Definitely green bell peppers for this pizza. It’s more authentic and the contrasting color is more appealing to me.
If you have some sliced mushrooms, add those to the skillet when you’re sauteeing everything.
What’s the Best Cheese for Cheesesteak?
Any melty white cheese will work well for this pizza. I’ve used shredded Mozzarella cheese, but Provolone would be delicious. Or, maybe my new favorite, Havarti cheese.
Some people like to use Cheez Whiz or other squirt cheese in addition to the white cheese. Go ahead and add that at the end, while the pizza is still hot. I won’t tell!

- Make pizza dough according to instructions or use a pre-purchased pizza crust, if you prefer. Note that, if using the pizza dough at the link, you will need to start several hours earlier or the day before.

- (Optional) After you saute the peppers and onions, saute the beef in the skillet as well, until the edges are a little crispy. This gives more of the Philly Cheesesteak texture.
- In a small bowl, whisk together all pizza sauce ingredients. Set aside.
- Preheat oven to 425℉.
- Spray pizza pan with cooking spray. Place crust on pan and pinch the edges a little, if you like. This helps to catch the sauce from spilling over.
