1 jar Texas Sweet Heat Salsa (hot or mild)

1 tsp olive oil

1/2 cup chopped onion

1/4 tsp. salt

1/8 tsp black pepper

3 frozen sandwich steaks (see note)

1 (13.8-oz can) refrigerated classic pizza dough

12 (1-oz.) slices mozzarella cheese, divided

1-1/2 cups frozen meatballs, cut in half and thawed in microwave according to package directions


Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Coat a 9-x13-inch baking dish with cooking spray. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil and cook onion, salt and pepper 3 to 5 minutes, or until onion is tender. Place steaks in skillet with onion and cook for 1 minute, turn over and cook for 2 more minutes, or until browned, breaking apart into pieces with spatula. Meanwhile, unroll pizza dough and press into bottom and halfway up sides of the baking dish. Line bottom of pizza dough with 6 slices of mozzarella cheese. Evenly spread 1/2 cup Texas Sweet Heat Salsa over cheese. In a medium bowl, toss meatballs with the remaining 1/2 cup salsa. Spoon meatballs onto dough and top with steak mixture. Bake for 12 minutes. Top with remaining 6 slices of mozzarella cheese and bake an additional 5 minute sor until crust is browned and cheese is melted.

Note: We tested this using frozen Steak-Ezebrand sandwich steaks and Rosinameatballs, they were fantastic for this!
