My family is REALLY into sports, specifically baseball and football! Our son plays baseball in both spring and fall leagues, and loves playing football with his friends in the neighborhood. The beginning of October ushers in the best month for sports of the year for us. College and pro football are in full swing, and baseball playoffs begin. This is prime-time sport-watching season at our house, which means we need prime-time party food.  That’s where these Pepperoni Pizza Sliders come into play. These sliders are super-simple to make and are perfect for gathering friends and watching baseball playoffs, and every football game on the schedule.  Here’s how they come together: Loaded with layers of pepperoni and mozzarella cheese, these Pepperoni Pizza Sliders are the perfect party food!  Fantastic for watch parties, tailgating, holiday parties and more, these hot mini sandwiches are easy to make and taste incredible!

Step 1: Gather your ingredients

These Pepperoni Pizza Sliders are super simple to make, and are made with fantastic Sugardale Pepperoni.  Sugardale Pepperoni features genuine, old-world flavor that makes everything taste better.  Not only is it amazing on pizza, it’s fantastic in salads, like my Italian Tortellini Salad and Italian Chopped Salad, and great for snacking, too!  Sugardale Pepperoni is available in 5 oz., 8 oz., and 1 lb. packages. Make sure you also have slider rolls, shredded mozzarella cheese, pizza sauce, and butter, garlic, Italian herbs and grated Parmesan cheese for topping the sliders.

Step 2: Slice Rolls and Add Pizza Sauce

The next step is to slice your slider rolls in half, horizontally.  After slicing they will be in two large halves – a flat bottom half, and the top half.  Add about a 1/2 Tbsp of pizza sauce to the bottom of each of the sliders.

Step 3: Top with Half of the Mozzarella Cheese

To the top of the sauce, sprinkle about half of the package of the mozzarella cheese.

Step 4: Layer on the Pepperoni

To each of the sliders, add about 3 slices of the Sugardale Pepperoni.  The pepperoni adds a fantastic savory flavor to each mini-sandwich and is the perfect size for each slider.

Step 5: Layer on the remaining cheese and pepperoni and bake

To the top of the pepperoni, add the remaining mozzarella cheese, and then top each slider with a couple more pepperoni slices.  This will create fantastic layers of cheese and meat to each slider.  The layering also helps make slicing the sliders a bit easier once they come out of the oven.

Baking the bottom half of the sliders is helpful in that it allows the cheese to melt, and the pepperoni to heat without over-browning the top layer of bread.  Bake the lower half of the sliders for approximately 5-7 minutes.  While the bottom half of the sliders are in the oven, it’s a good time to mix together the garlic butter that you’ll be brushing over the top of the rolls.

Step 6: Add top half of rolls, brush with garlic butter and add Parmesan

Once the bottom half of the sliders come out of the oven, top with the top half of the slider rolls.  Brush the tops of the rolls with the garlic butter.  Then, sprinkle on the grated Parmesan cheese.  This is such a great addition to the Pepperoni Pizza Sliders and adds some complimentary flavor to each mini sandwich.  It also mimics the flavors and textures of a pepperoni pizza crust.

Bake the sliders for another 4-6 minutes – this is just enough to toast the top half of the bread to a beautiful golden brown. Loaded with layers of pepperoni and mozzarella cheese, these Pepperoni Pizza Sliders are the perfect party food!  Fantastic for watch parties, tailgating, holiday parties and more, these hot mini sandwiches are easy to make and taste incredible!

Once the sliders come out of the oven, they are ready to slice and serve.  Feel free to serve right on the baking sheet for your hungry sports-loving crowd.  These are also fantastic for a quick weeknight dinner when time is tight.
