Italian Pizzaiola (Beefsteak Pizza Style)

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by Kim D.

This Italian steak is requested often by my family. I serve it with a fresh salad, warm bread, and with either mashed potatoes or pasta. The steaks make a very thin olive oil type sauce that can be used with the pasta. Don't forget the Chianti!

Easy, yummy, and very cheesy (I used 2 c., of course). Wouldn't change a thing. The steaks are tender, and the flavor is superb.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (325°F is using glass baking dish).
  2. Place steaks, in one layer, in a 9x13-inch baking pan.
  3. Mash up tomatoes and pour on top of steaks, spreading to cover steaks.
  4. Sprinkle with oregano, parsley, onion salt, black pepper, crushed red pepper, and minced garlic.
  5. Drizzle olive oil on top and bake, uncovered for 1 hour and 15 minutes.
  6. Take steaks out of oven; sprinkle tops with shredded Mozzarella cheese.
  7. Return to oven and bake until cheese is melted.
  8. *NOTE* If you want to use the sauce over pasta, you might want to add 1 (8 oz.) can of tomato sauce along with the can of stewed tomatoes to make it go a little further.
