(See the bottom of this post for suggested flavor combinations from our Facebook readers.) Easy Pizza Sliders are a breeze to make, bake and take to your next party.
Fast and Easy Pizza Sliders are yummy, cheesy, saucy ...everything you would expect and more!
My peeps love a great slider. Burger sliders, turkey sliders, you name it. Put it on a little toasted bun and we will probably eat it.
Keyword TOASTED. Ever get a soggy slider? Yeah, no bueno.
So brush the bottom slider with a seasoned butter and oil and toast for a few minutes while you are shredding your cheese. (Please.)
Now we are going to have fun with these easy pizza sliders. Time to top them with your favorite pizza ingredients. To keep them from "sliding" all over the place, we are going to assemble them in reverse order than you would a traditional pizza.
In other words, toppings first!
We went with layers (and layers) of thin sliced pepperoni and Canadian bacon. Load 'em up!
Then we top each pizza slider with a tablespoon of delicious pizza sauce. Use your own, use our homemade version...or go easy. Jarred pizza sauce is just as yummy on these sliders.
Don't worry, we didn't forget the browned and wonderful Italian sausage. To keep the sausage from falling out, we sandwiched it between the sauce and the cheese.
Cheese me! Load your easy pizza sliders up with your favorite cheese. We stuck with the traditional mozzarella. Ooey and gooey.
Just a few minutes and your Easy Pizza Sliders will be melted, toasted and ready to eat.

May we suggest you make a double batch? These sliders will disappear quickly.
