  1. Combine pesto and lemon juice in small bowl. Evenly brush beef steak with 1 tablespoon pesto mixture.
  2. Place steaks on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 11 to 15 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 13 to 16 minutes) for medium rare (145 degrees F) to medium (160 degrees F) doneness, turning occasionally.
  3. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Spray 10x15-inch rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray. Place dough on baking sheet and pat dough to edges of baking sheet. Spread dough with remaining 3 tablespoons pesto mixture. Top with tomatoes and cheese. Bake in 425 degrees F oven, 15 to 18 minutes or until crust is golden brown.
  4. Carve steak into slices; season with salt, if desired. Top pizza evenly with arugula and steak slices; sprinkle with red pepper, as desired.


  • Cook's Tip:¬†Twelve ounces cooked steak, cut into thin strips, may be substituted for top sirloin steak. Toss beef strips with 1 tablespoon pesto mixture before topping pizza as directed in step 4.
  • Cook's Tip:¬†One package (10 ounces) whole wheat pre-baked pizza crust (12-inch diameter) may be substituted for refrigerated pizza dough. Place pizza crust on ungreased large baking sheet. Top evenly with tomatoes and cheese. Bake according to package directions. Continue as directed in Step 4.
