Pepperoni Pizza Sliders Recipe

Just when you thought pepperoni pizza couldn't get any better, we turned them into sliders. These Pepperoni Pizza Sliders are out of this world. My kids say they are better than pizza. They are perfect for little hands to hold, and my kids love helping me make these.

I love making these for my kids. They aren’t as messy as pizza and they take minutes to make.

The best part is, you don’t have to make the dough.

This is the perfect dinner for crazy nights because they only take minutes to throw together AND bake.

I love how quickly they come together, and how full of flavor they are. I also love how they are the perfect size for little hands. Pizza is still a little bit big for my kids, but these sliders are perfect for them.

The key to making successful sliders

Sliders may seem difficult to make, but they are actually really easy, when you make them right. Some people often make a big mistake by purchasing or making individual rolls.

Sliders work best when you use rolls that have been baked together and are touching. You then don’t have to cut each individual roll, but rather, keep all the rolls together, and cut down them, with one cut.

This part can be a little tricky, trying to keep your knife straight and even, going down 12 rolls, but let the knife do the work, and continue with a back and forth motion.

If you cook the sliders this particular way, with the rolls all still connected, you will have the perfect sliders, that won’t lose all their filling when you cook them, because they are all connected.

what other pizza variations could I use, making these pizza sliders?

The thing I love about this recipe, is how easy you can make it your own. I personally don’t love the pepperoni and cheese combination, so for a few of the sliders, I like to add my favorite toppings.

Here are a few combinations you have to try:

  • Ham and pineapple with green onion
  • Meatlover slider with ham, pepperoni, sausage, and bacon
  • BBQ Chicken pieces with bbq sauce in place of marinara
  • Vegetarian sliders with sun dried tomatoes, spinach, artichokes, olives, green peppers, and Alfredo sauce.
  • Cheese pizza sliders, with all your favorite cheese. I like pepper jack, mozzarella, cheddar, Colby Jack, and a little bit of fresh parmesan.
