Grilled Tenderloin Pizza

Did this one this weekend, it was absoloutely awesome!

  • 5-6 Button Mushroosm
  • 1 Tenderloin steak
  • Pizza dough
  • Blue Cheese
  • Pizza sauce
  • Black Pepper and Salt, to taste

Take some mushroom caps (button mushrooms work well) and take the stems off. fill the stems with italian dressing (I used homemade, but you could use prepared). Take a tenderloin steak and cover it with olive oil, black pepper, and salt.

Grill the mushrooms and the steak--you'll want the steak medium at the most, medium-rare is better. Wrap it in foil when you take it off the grill and let "carry-over heat" bring the steak together.

Slice the cooked mushrooms and steak thin-thin-thin.

Take pizza dough (make your own, buy it, or whatever) and toss it out on a medium-hot grill. Let it cook on one side for 2 minutes and flip it--now it's time to work fast!

Oil the cooked side (top) of the pizza crust. Put the sliced steak and mushrooms all over the pizza. Spread crumbled blue cheez all over and then pour (hot) pizza sauce all over the top (by having the pizza sauce hot and on top, it is more likely to melt the cheese.

Two minutes on this side will be enough, so take it up right away.If the cheese still needs to melt, put it in a 200 deg oven for about 3-5 minutes to finish the job.

Slice and enjoy!
