A note about serious food allergies

Philadelphia has been the center of many important contributions to the United States: Benjamin Franklin, the Declaration of Independence, and the Eagles' 1991 "Gang Green" defense, just to name a few. But the cheesesteak may be chief in our hearts, and we salute this great achievement. We've sidestepped the authenticity debate (Cheese Whiz is involved) by serving it in pizza form with tender shaved roast beef, caramelized onion, and a creamy cheddar sauce. One bite and you'll be feeling the brotherly love.

    Make Cheese Sauce

    Heat 1 tsp. olive oil in a medium pan over medium heat. Add garlic and cook 2 minutes. Add evaporated milk and simmer 5 minutes. Whisk in cheddar cheese (reserving ¼ for pizza topping) and simmer 2 minutes until sauce is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon and adhere to pizza. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.

  • Step 3 - Assemble Pizza

    Assemble Pizza

    Spread cheese sauce on top of naan flatbreads. Evenly divide roast beef between both, then top each with reserved cheddar cheese. Place assembled pizzas in oven directly on oven rack. Place baking sheet on the rack just below to catch any drippings, and bake 10-12 minutes. Wipe pan with cheese sauce clean.

  • Step 4 - Caramelize Onions and Make Vinaigrette

    Caramelize Onions and Make Vinaigrette

    While pizza cooks, heat 1 tsp. olive oil in pan used for cheese sauce over medium-high heat. Add onions and cook about 5 minutes, stirring constantly until onions start to slightly char. Add ¼ cup water to pan and cook, while stirring, until evaporated, about 5 minutes. In a large mixing bowl, combine sugar, white wine vinegar, 2 tsp. olive oil, half the red pepper flakes (start with a small amount, taste, and add more if desired), and a pinch of salt. Whisk together thoroughly and set aside.

  • Step 5 - Finish Pizza

    Finish Pizza

    Remove pizzas and baking sheet from oven, turn broiler on high, and transfer pizzas to baking sheet (careful, it will be hot) and into broiler 1 minute until cheese becomes bubbly. Remove from oven and top with caramelized onions.
