When it comes to traditional American foods to enjoy at parties or get togethers, sandwiches and pizza top the list. So why not combine two great traditions to make a new one? This month, I'm offering a quick pizza recipe that has toppings inspired by a classic roast beef sandwich. Some items, like mushrooms, can be left out to be more true to a sandwich, but I like the extra pizzazz they add to the pie!

A mayonnaise base might sound unusual, and it is, but it gives this pizza a special flavor that's truly great. Add some great toppings and some extra fresh ones added after the pizza comes out of the oven, and you've got a pizza that will satisfy and entertain. Your guests will be asking for the recipe and making requests for future get-togethers! Enjoy!


Roast Beef Sammy Pizza

  • 1 T. olive oil
  • 1/2 small white onion -- sliced
  • 4 oz. sliced mushrooms -- optional
  • 1/2 c. mayonnaise
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. red pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 prepared pizza crust (e.g. Boboli)
  • 8 oz. thinly sliced deli roast beef
  • 4 oz. shredded sharp cheese
  • 1 small tomato -- diced
  • 2 green onions -- sliced
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees and place a pizza stone in the bottom third, if desired.

In a skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion and mushrooms -- if desired -- and sauté until the onion is softened, but not browned and the mushrooms are golden. Set aside.

In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, black and red peppers and the salt. Spread in a thin layer over the prepared crust. Arrange the roast beef, cooked vegetables and cheese over the crust. Bake the pizza in the preheated oven for 8 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.

Remove the pizza from the oven and arrange the tomatoes and green onions over the top before slicing and serving.

  • Yields: 4 servings
  • Preparation Time: 15 minutes
