          That is totally out of balance between it's meat/cheese to bread ratio. Therefore you are out of balance. Seek treatment immediately. Some sort of shakra thing I'm sure.

          Now if you were to take the filling if a philly cheese steak and wrap that in a piece of pizza you might have something.

            Actually, some places in Philly do make a Cheesesteak pizza. It is a cheese pizza with steak on top of it. Sauce and onions are optional.

              Also common is the pizza cheesesteak--cheesesteak using mozz or provolone and pizza sauce.

            It looks kinda delicious to me, but yeah...I wouldn't be able to eat more than a few bites of it before feeling full of cheese and grease. :o)

                Doesn't look right. Agree with the sentiment that the ratio is off. I've actually made a homemade philly cheesesteak taco and I thought that's what this would be.

                Get some good tortillas, put on the steak, cheese, onions, peppers, etc. Douse with some hot sauce. Makes a good snack or meal depending on how much you eat.

                  Maybe they wanted to make their own Cheesy Blasters: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p1W8R5...
