“On the second day of Pizza my true love said to me… S-m-o-k-e-y Steak Cheese…. Caramelised onion, Rosemary and Brie…” and a partridge in a pear tree… okay maybe I’ve gone a little carbohydrate mad but you get the picture, I’m fa la la ing while I make a Smokey Steak & Cheese Pizza with Caramelised Sweet Onion.
Now this is the most divine pizza ever, even if I do say so myself, (there’s that modesty coming out again.)
Anyway, this was going to be a Wagyu & Brie Pizza with Caramelised Onion but I hit a snag getting the Wagyu at short notice. Thankfully the guys at Russell’s Quality Meats in the Plaza fixed me up with some gorgeous Dorrigo eye fillet, cut super thinly in little rounds. Even though it wasn’t Wagyu the beef just melted in the mouth.
I am a huge fan of the Bakers Delight bases; because they are pre cooked this pizza spent only 6-7 minutes in the oven. This allowed the steak to stay incredibly moist and tender.
Don’t forget I have some $5 Bakers Delight vouchers to giveaways to readers who are interested in making their own gourmet pizzas. Look for the question at the bottom of the recipe for your chance to win one.
1 Fresh Bakers Delight Pizza Herb and Garlic Base
1/4 cup Smokey BBQ Sauce
1/2 cup grated cheese
2 sprigs rosemary
½ cup caramelised sweet onion
8 thinly cut slices of eye fillet steak
5 slices of Brie
½ cup rocket
Caramelised Sweet Onion:
3 Onions sliced into rings
1 Tbs Olive Oil
1 Tbs Butter
1 Tbs Brown Sugar
1 1/2 Tbs Brandy
Sweet Onion Method:
Melt butter in saucepan with oil, onion, and sugar. Stir until coated with oil.
Cover and sweat on a low heat for 10 minutes stirring regularly.
Uncover pan and continue to cook and stir until caramelised, approx 10 minutes. Deglaze with Brandy and cook over a low heat until evaporated.
Spread the pizza base with barbeque sauce.
Add the grated cheese and rosemary to the base ensuring even coverage.
Scatter ½ cup of caramelised sweet onion over the pizza.
Place the steak rounds on the pizza where each of the eight slices will be cut from.
Bake at 220 degrees for 7 minutes.
Remove the pizza from the oven and add slices of brie.
Serve with Rocket and enjoy!
I have made this pizza before on a homemade pizza base. The flavour was awesome but the base did not handle all the liquid from the barbeque sauce, steak and caramelised onion. The Bakers Delight pizza base suited this pizza perfectly as the thick par cooked base was the perfect vehicle for such a lush moist pizza.
Give this pizza a try at home, I promise you will fall in love. The Bakers Delight Pizza Bases are available in a two pack at your local Bakers Delight store for only $4.50.
