Remix pizza night by serving pizza sliders instead! Pizza Pull-Apart Sliders are stuffed with cheese, pepperoni, sausage with herb topping!

AN EASY, CHEESY PIZZA-INSPIRED SLIDER

My family and I usually have a designated pizza night a couple of times a month. My son loves to help make pizza so I’ll pick up some store-bought pizza dough and toppings and we can make it together pretty fast. These pizza pull-apart sliders are a funny little wist on our usual pizza night.

TIPS FOR MAKING PIZZA SLIDERS:

  • You can have a lot of fun with this recipe by adding whatever toppings your family loves. I even picked up pre-cooked sausage to make this even easier.
  • The seasoned buttery topping on this is amazing. It really makes these special. You can use as little or as much of it as you like. Some people don’t enjoy a lot of seasoning so you can make the call yourself.
  • Definitely serve with marinara or pizza sauce!

  • dinner rolls
  • pizza sauce

HOW TO MAKE PIZZA SLIDERS:

Preheat oven to 350f degrees. Spray the bottom of a 9×13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Slice the rolls horizontally (while still attached) to make a top and bottom bun.

You’ll want to make sure that you have the thicker part of the bun on the bottom. Since it’s going to be carrying a lot of the load with all the toppings. 🙂

    Very tasty and will make again however I would toast bottoms to avoid sogginess. Also will take foil off while in oven for about last 2 minutes. When done, avoid putting foil back on so that they don’t get soggy from condensation as they cool. I found out the hard way when I transported to a friend’s house and they were soggy when I unveiled them! They still tasted good. The butter sauce with spices really makes them so yummy.

    Delicious, easy recipe! I typically make them without sausage, cut the amount of butter in half (and they’ve never been dry), and use garlic powder instead of garlic salt. A family favorite for sure! Thanks for posting.

    They were delicious minus all of the salt. I wonder if it was meant to be garlic powder in the recipe instead of garlic salt? Other than it being way too salty, it was great. When I make these again, I will not use garlic salt lol! I’m still puckering! Haha!

    “45” pepperonis? LOL I love an exact recipe! Although I didn’t follow it too much. 3/4 cup would have been too much sauce because my rolls were kind of small. Omitted the sausage because I didn’t have any. =( I definitely didn’t count out the pepperoni..Did anyone else?? LOL
    I was too lazy to mix the topping in a bowl so I just slathered on some butter and sprinkled the spices on top. A perfect, fast, lazy meal! Had it with a salad per your suggestion.

    These sliders sound & look so good, except for the fact that I totally abhor pepperoni! I’ll use a good quality Canadian bacon instead, so I’m sure they’ll be scrumptious, and also somewhat healthier.
