These easy pizza sliders will become a life-saver for you to bail you out when the unexpected strikes. Just like they were for me. Here’s what happened.
One year for my nephew’s birthday party, we were going all out! When we arrived at the party place, there were 5 cops out front and we decided it would be best to move the party back to our house.
We had invited over 20 guests, who were all hungry and ready for a party. I assured them I could have dinner ready in no time, and not to worry.
As we were on the way to my house, I tried my hardest to make a plan but came up with nothing. I started looking over all the ingredients trying to see what recipes could be done to fill a crowd this large.

I saw a bunch of dinner rolls that I bought that morning from the clearance rack by the bakery and leftover ingredients from the pizza night we had the night before. That’s when the idea for pizza sliders hit me!
This is a very inexpensive and quick meal to make. It only has a few ingredients so I don’t have to worry about making too much of a mess which I LOVE!
So I got started cutting the rolls and half horizontally and spreading sauce evenly across the bottom.
Then I did a little bit of cheese, pepperoni, and extra cheese on it. At this point I knew it was going to turn out great.
Then I put the bun layer on brushed a little butter, garlic powder, parsley mixture over it all before putting it in the oven to get all melty. Let me just tell you, they were a hit! I brought the out to the kids and the gobbled them down, played some games, and had a great time.
It didn’t take that long to make several pans of it and it felt good to know I had fed them all something homemade with way less processed ingredients than the pizzas I could have ordered.
When making these yourself remember that you should add all the ingredients you love on a homemade pizza. It’s totally customizable to your taste.
Pizza sliders are so easy, they’re perfect for a weeknight meal.
