HOW TO MAKE PEPPERONI PIZZA SLIDERS IN 2 STEPS
These sliders are the best kind of finger food with all the familiar flavors of pizza in a sandwich! They are great as a busy weeknight meal and also for any sort of gathering.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and coat a 9×13 baking dish with cooking spray. Place the bottom halves of the Hawaiian rolls into the prepared baking dish. Top with an even layer of pizza sauce, followed by the mozzarella cheese, slices of pepperoni and tops of the rolls.
In a small bowl, combine the melted butter, Italian seasoning, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Mix well and brush over the tops of the rolls. Sprinkle the fresh parsley over the top and bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes, or until cheese has completely melted. Using a sharp knife, cut down the seams of the rolls and serve immediately!
A FEW NOTES ABOUT THESE PIZZA SLIDERS:
Replace pepperoni with sausage, bacon or Canadian bacon! Or omit the meat altogether and add extra cheese.
Other ingredients you could squeeze into the sliders: olives, green onions, chopped yellow onion, green peppers, jalapeno peppers or mushrooms.
Serve immediately after pulling these out of the oven for optimal cheesy enjoyment!
HOW TO PREPARE THESE SLIDERS AHEAD OF TIME
These can be put together ahead of time and baked when it is convenient. Simply assemble the sliders as directed in the instructions, cover with foil and refrigerate. When you are ready to bake them, remove the foil and add an extra 5 minutes onto your baking time.
You’re gonna love these! If sliders are your thing or the family’s favorite meal, then please be sure to also try Baked Cheesy Beef Sliders because they are SO good! My Hot Ham and Cheese Sandwiches that I made on Hawaiian Bread are also an easy go to that’s tasty.
