Yes, you can have steak for breakfast! This pizza is made with 3oz of sirloin tip, a lean cut of beef. Thanks to increased trimming practices, the external fat in retail cuts of beef have decreased by 80% in the past 20 years. You can now find more than 66% of beef cuts that meet the guidelines for “lean”. According to the USDA and FDA, the term “lean” is defined as having less than 10% fat by weight, or less than 10g of fat per 100g.
