As part of Eater Pizza Week 2014, chefs at five LA restaurants that don't serve pizza agreed to make a special limited edition pizza-inspired creation on offer just this week. Every day we'll highlight a new pizza, today we have Shanghai "WildCraft" Beef Rolls from Little Sister.

Chef Tin Vuong over at popular pan-Asian eatery Little Sister in Manhattan Beach contributes to Pizza Week with a $12 off-the-menu pizza special he calls Shanghai "WildCraft" Beef Rolls. The dish is a mashup of niu rou jian bing or Chinese beef rolls (one of his favorite foods growing up in the SGV) and "Betty" the sourdough pizza crust he makes for WildCraft in Culver City.
Basically, chef Vuong makes a scallion pancake pizza crust using duck fat and cooks it on a grill until speckled. He tops the crust with a sweet bean paste and hoisin mix, then adds crushed peanuts, sesame seeds, cucumber, green onions, cilantro, celery leaves, red onion and marinated, slow cooked beef brisket. He rolls the rectangle, slices it, and garnishes with more cilantro leaves. Drop by Little Sister to try it for yourself.
