Philly Cheesesteak Flower

It's both a centerpiece *and* dinner!

Total time: 60 minutes

Ingredients for 4 people

3 green bell peppers, diced

Olive oil

2 onions, diced

2 lbs ground beef

2 TBSP Chefclub Italian spice mix

Salt & pepper

2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

1 beer

Pizza dough

20 slices provolone cheese

1 cup grated cheddar cheese


2 tbsp poppy seeds

1 tbsp sesame seeds

Parsley, for garnish

Step 1/4

In a pan add olive oil, green bell peppers, onions, ground beef, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper. Once meat is browned, add beer. Cook until beer is reduced.

Step 2/4

Cut 9 rounds out of pizza dough and divide the ground beef mixture between all 9. Place a slice of provolone on top of the beef, then seal the dough and roll into a ball. Cut 1 slightly larger round out of pizza dough and stack remaining provolone cheese into the center, close and turn over onto parchment-lined baking sheet.

Step 3/4

Place the 9 beef-filled balls around the larger provolone ball. Using remaining pizza dough, sprinkle 1/2 with cheddar cheese and fold over. Slice into 9 strips and twirl each one. Brush the beef-filled balls with water and adhere one twirled strip in a half circle on each one. Decorate the center of each ball with poppy seeds. And do the same with sesame seeds on the large center ball. Bake for 30-40 minutes at 350 °F, or until dough is cooked and golden.

Step 4/4

Garnish with parsley. Slice the top of the provolone center and dip the balls in. Enjoy!
