Pizza hoagie

These homemade pizza steak sandwiches will keep you from wanting to order out! This is such a good sandwich and super simple to make. The only thing you might have to buy special is the hoagie buns. If you make your own bread, even better, just shape them into a torpedo and slice in half to make this. You can even use a hot dog bun if that’s what you have on hand.

This sandwich does use 2 kinds of cheese, provolone and mozzarella, but I always try to have these items on hand. Blocks of mozzarella and slices of provolone are a necessity around here. Try my homemade pizza sauce from a 99 cent can of tomato sauce and a few seasonings. You can purchase a store bought sauce if you’d like.

Here is Where the Magic Happens

The actual pizza “steak” is actually a mixture of hamburger, egg and crushed crackers to bind it all together. Just as if you were making a meatloaf but you don’t have to put in any thing else.

Hamburger – Egg – Crackers

I like to use a fancy cracker instead of saltines but they work just fine too.

Shape your meat mixture into a patty that will fit your hoagie bun once it shrinks a bit. Put in the oven at 350 for 35 minutes. During the last 10-15 minutes of cooking time you can assemble the buns with cheese and add the sauce and banana peppers to your steak patties. The sauce and peppers will warm as the patties continue to cook.

Place the buns with cheese on both sides into the oven open faced so the cheese melts and the buns toast.

Assemble the steak patties and the cheesy buns and cut in half to eat.

Let me know what you think if you give this a try. I’d love to hear any improvements or changes that you make to this homemade pizza steak sandwich recipe.

The Best Way to Cook this Pizza Steak Hoagie

In an airfryer, of course! Why heat up the whole big oven for a quick cooked meal in the air fryer? This one is similar to the one I use and it is priced just right too! There is currently a $10 off coupon available for it here. (This is an advertisement for this air fryer and if you purchase it on our recommendation, Amazon will share a portion of the profits with Appalachian Cooks to help us keep this website running.)

Be sure to use the pan that comes with this air fryer to catch the grease that comes off of the meat patties. Just lay the shaped patties in the pan and insert onto a shelf. These take much less time than cooking these in the conventional oven. Use a meat thermometer to make sure the center reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit. The buns can be toasted near the end of the cooking time to melt the cheese and the sauce can be added to the hoagie to heat up as well.

      Let me know what you thought! I like these so well that I’m thinking of skimping on the lasagna meat sauce today and making myself one of these for lunch. It doesn’t really take a whole lot of ground meat when you add egg and cracker to it.
