When we make Italian Beef we usually have it for a couple of dinners and then end up freezing the rest for this pizza recipe or other dinner ideas. Unless we make it for a party, then there’s not usually a lot left. But do try and make enough so you have leftover beef for this pizza.

How Do You Make Homemade Pizza?

You can totally google a recipe for homemade pizza crust, but that’s not really what this recipe is about. This pizza ia about the toppings, so a good store bought pizza crust will do just fine.

We like to add a layer of cheese to the pizza crust first…

Then the peppers. Now finish the pizza off with another layer of mozzarella cheese on top and bake. This is a fork and knife pizza recipe guys, There’s so many flavorful toppings going on here that you wouldn’t want any of it falling off.

After this pizza bakes, pull it out of the oven and give it a few minutes to rest. Nothing worse than cutting into a pizza and all the cheese comes right off of it. Just be patient, it’ll be worth the wait!
