Pizza Sliders Recipe (Pepperoni Pizza)
Pepperoni, sauce, and cheese sandwiched between soft rolls and baked — these pepperoni pizza sliders will be the hit of your party!
I interrupt my regularly scheduled programming (healthy! skinny! kale!) for GAME DAY FOOD. Okay, I know game day food can totally be healthy (should we talk about putting butternut squash in queso?) but sometimes it isn’t, and that’s okay too. Everything in moderation, and these are made for sharing. And they contain protein and calcium — score!
That was a completely unintentional game day pun but I’m rolling with it.
You guys already know I’m obsessed with all things pizza. We’ve got pepperoni pizza homemade hot pockets, pepperoni pizza dip (SO GOOD), Parmesan crusted pepperoni pizza grilled cheese, and pizza mac and cheese muffins.
More about these Pizza Sliders:
If you’re looking for something on the healthier end of the spectrum, you could whip up some pepperoni pizza zucchini noodles or even easier, bite sized zucchini pepperoni pizzas. Or one of my personal favorites, pepperoni pizza quinoa stuffed peppers. If that’s still not enough, you can try pepperoni pizza 6 layer hummus dip. Enough to satisfy your pizza cravings?
To make things even better, these pizza sliders could not possibly be easier to make and you can easily double the recipe if you’re serving a crowd. They’re absolutely perfect for any football watching party. If pepperoni isn’t your thing, you could fill these with any of your favorite pizza toppings: mushrooms, peppers, onions, sausage, ham, spinach….the possibilities are limitless.
PS: This is the baking dish I used.
Additional Baked Slider recipes:
I love that you could easily prepare these Pizza Sliders ahead of time and pop the pan into the oven when your company arrives. They’ll love the smell of these hot sandwiches baking in the oven. You’ll love that you can effortlessly serve a delicious hot sandwich. Here’s more great ideas that I’m sure you’ll like:

You may use other rolls that are all connected in a sheet – King’s Hawaiian is typically the most readily available. If you don’t use mini pepperoni, I’d use one pepperoni per roll, so 12 pepperoni slices. If you want to use more, just make sure you have a sharp knife to slice these apart into individual sliders before serving. Be creative with pizza toppings. In addition to pepperoni (or instead of) you could add mushrooms, peppers, onions, cooked sausage, ham, spinach, olives, etc.

Husband’s take: He loves these, the kids love these, everyone loves these.
Changes I would make: None are necessary at all but I would possibly play with different fun pizza “toppings” next time I make these.
