steaked-out pita pizzas


  • 1 pound shoulder center steaks (Ranch Steaks) or boneless top sirloin steak, cut 3/4-inch thick
  • 1/3 cup prepared reduced fat non-creamy caesar dressing
  • 4 whole wheat pita breads
  • 3/4 cup shredded reduced fat Italian cheese blend, divided
  • 6 cups loosely packed chopped romaine lettuce (about 6 oz.)
  • 1 cup diced, seeded tomatoes
  • 1/3 cup prepared reduced fat non-creamy Caesar dressing
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


Heat oven to 350F. Cut beef steak lengthwise in half, then crosswise into 1/8-inch thick strips. Combine beef and 1/3 cup dressing in medium bowl; toss to coat. Cover and marinate in refrigerator 30 minutes.

Place pita breads slightly overlapping on metal baking sheet. Sprinkle 2 Tbsp. cheese on each pita. Bake in 350F oven 10 to 12 minutes or until pitas are toasted and cheese is melted.

Meanwhile remove beef from marinade, draining well; discard marinade. Heat large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add half of beef; stir-fry 1 to 2 minutes or until outside surface of beef is no longer pink. Remove from skillet. Repeat with remaining beef.

Toss lettuce, tomatoes and remaining 1/2 cup cheese in large bowl. Add beef and remaining 1/3 cup dressing; toss to coat evenly. Season with salt and pepper. Divide beef mixture evenly over pitas. Serve immediately.
