Makes 8 slices

5 tsp (25 mL) olive oil
1 pkg (227 g) sliced Ontario Crimini Mushrooms
1/2 tsp (2 mL) dried thyme leaves
3-1/2 cups (875 mL) halved and thinly sliced Ontario Onions
1 large clove garlic, minced
1 tsp (5 mL) granulated sugar
250 g Ontario Beef Sirloin Steak, thinly sliced
1 tsp (5 mL) all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp (2 mL) Worcestershire sauce
Salt and pepper
1 prepared pizza dough (500 g)
1/2 cup (125 mL) smoky barbecue sauce
1/3 cup (75 mL) diced Ontario Greenhouse Sweet Red Pepper
1 cup (250 mL) finely shredded Ontario Asiago Cheese
1/2 cup (125 mL) finely shredded Parmesan cheese
2 tbsp (25 mL) finely chopped fresh Ontario Parsley Leaves

In a large skillet, heat 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the oil over medium heat. Add mushrooms and thyme; cook for 6 minutes, stirring occasionally. With a slotted spoon, remove to a bowl. Add 1 tsp (5 mL) of the oil and onions to skillet; cover and cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally about 15 minutes. Stir in garlic and sugar, cook for 1 minute. Stir in 1/4 cup (50 mL) water. Cook, stirring until onions are soft and caramel colour, about 3 to 5 minutes. Remove to bowl.

Add remaining oil to skillet. Add steak; cook until lightly pink, about 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in flour, Worcestershire and 1 tbsp (15 mL) water. Cook until thickened, about 1 to 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

On a floured surface, roll dough into 13-inch (33 cm) circle; place on lightly greased pizza pan. Spread barbecue sauce leaving 1-inch (2.5 cm) border. Top with steak, peppers, mushrooms and onions. Sprinkle with asiago and Parmesan cheeses. Bake in 450°F (230°C) oven until crust is golden brown and cheese is bubbly about 15 to 20 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley.
