Sear steak for 3 to 4 minutes per side or until well browned. Sear fat cap, rocking back and forth, for 1 to 2 minutes or until evenly caramelized. Remove from heat; let rest for 10 minutes. Slice steak into strips. Set aside.

5. Meanwhile, in same skillet set over medium heat, combine remaining vegetable oil, onion, mushrooms, and remaining salt and pepper; cook, stirring frequently, for 8 to 10 minutes or until mushrooms and onion are browned and tender.

6. Form dough into 14-inch round. Spread cornmeal on pizza peel; arrange dough on top.
