Who fries a steak you ask? Well if you have to ask, you never heard of good ol’ southern cooking. This chicken fried steak pizza makes it happen with big slices of golden fried steak, tenderized to the max. How do you make a tough cut of steak tasty, ya fry it, that’s how! And don’t forget to spice it up a bit with a generous seasoning and some spice.
Green beans and mozzarella cheese are hiding under the steak, next time I’ll put the beans on top of the chicken, it would looked a lot nicer, but looks aren’t the only thing that matter. It’s really all about that flavour, and flavour is what we got! Get on in there and and don’t forget its what’s on the inside that matters, plus there’s gravy, so that rocks!
