  • 1 roll pizza crust or a pizza crust suitable for a 10-12" pizza
  • 5 ounces 5 ounces deli roast beef Approximately
  • 8-10 slices provolone cheese Approximately
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/2 medium onion diced (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 2 cups beef stock I like using low-sodium
  • 2 tablespoons  Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 2 beef bullion cubes optional but adds great flavor
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  • Unroll the pizza crust into a long rectangle. Leave 1" at either and and cover with a layer of roast beef and a layer of cheese.
  • Decide how many rolls you want. For 8-10 rolls, roll up using the short end. For 12-16 rolls, roll up starting with the long side. Pinch the end to seal. Slice into equal size rolls and place on cookie sheet. Bake for 15-22 minutes, depending on size, until the dough is cooked through.
  • While the rolls are baking, make the au jus. Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and cook about 3-4 minutes, until semi-translucent, then add the garlic and cook 1 minute more. Add the beef stock, Worcestershire, soy sauce, and bullion cubes, if using. Bring to a boil and cook for 4-5 minutes boiling (or until the bullion is dissolved). Taste carefully, and add salt and pepper as desired.
  • Serve hot rolls with the au jus.
