Pizza Sliders

We decided to try something slightly different this year for our 4th of July dinner. Pizza Sliders couldn’t have been easier and they tasted simply amazing. I had pinned this recipe years ago and decided now was a good time to give it a try.

Sandwich sliders have become quite popular over the years however this was a new take on the recipe that I was excited to try. The recipe makes 12 sliders and my initial thought was to cook half of the recipe and make the rest the following night. So glad I decided to go with my gut and make all of them at once, because between John and I we inhaled all 12 of them.

The flavor is ridiculous! Find an excuse and make these for yourself, friends or family. They fit nicely in the toaster oven so no need to heat up the entire house in the middle of summer. Huge win in my books.
