Dutch cheesesteak sandwich from a pizza oven

The Dutch have the best cheese in the world. It’s a bold statement, but it’s true. If you can get your hands on some Dutch cheese for this recipe, you are so lucky.

We celebrate this award-winning Gouda cheese by making a cheesesteak sandwich in a pizza oven. If you don’t own a pizza oven, you can make this recipe in your barbecue as well.


  • 1 large Turkish bread
  • 1 onion
  • chuck steak
  • 100 grs of Gouda cheese

For the herbed butter

  • 150 grs of butter
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • a handful of chopped chives

How to

  1. Let the butter come up to room temperature. Cut it into smaller pieces to speed up the process.
  2. To make the herbed butter, grate the garlic cloves and chop the chives finely. Mix it with the butter with some salt and pepper.
  3. Fire up your pizza oven.
  4. Cut the Turkish bread in half and put some of the butter on both halves. Toast the bread in the pizza oven until it looks golden brown.
  5. Cut the onion into thin slices and put a cast iron pan in the pizza oven to heat up. Melt some butter in the pan, put the onion in and cook them till they soften.
  6. Spread the onion slices on the bottom part of the bread.
  7. Cut the chuck steak into thin slices. As thin as you can. Put the meat in the freezer, so it’s easier to do.
  8. Heat up the pan for the second time and sear the slices of chuck. When the outside forms a crust, they’re done.
  9. Ad the slices to the bread on top of the onions.
  10. Slice the Gouda cheese. Get a Dutch cheese slicer if you don’t have one. Cover the meat with the slices of cheese. Top it off with a few bits of the herbed butter.
  11. Put the bread back in the oven and let the cheese melt. Put on the crown of the bread and cut the bread into 4 parts so you can share.
