Given the number of pizza recipes on my blog, it should come as no surprise when I say that Mike and I love pizza. We could easily eat it 7 days a week, but considering that it is not the healthiest meal choice, we try to limit ourselves to 1 night a week (plus leftovers for the lunch the next day!)
Recently, a chain restaurant came out with their version of pizza sliders. The commercials made them look really good, so last time we ordered pizza, Mike and I decided to go for the sliders. We loved how they tasted, but decided we probably wouldn't order them again. You see, we're cheap. It cost us $10 for 9 sliders. Typically when we order from this restaurant, we get their dinner box, with an 8 slice pizza, 5 breadsticks, and 10 cinnamon sticks. That also costs $10. Between the two of us, we ate 8 of the 9 sliders. Yes, I eat as much as my husband. Don't judge ;) When we get the dinner box, we have enough food for dinner, plus leftovers for lunch the next day. So basically, even though we enjoyed the sliders, we're too cheap to buy them again.
One night I figured, why not make our own sliders? I've made a mini version of pizzas before, and these are basically the same thing. I didn't plan far enough ahead to make my own pizza dough, so I decided to use Pillsbury Grands. I used the Flaky Layers Butter style to give the crust an extra something special. Mike and I both really enjoyed these, and we'll be making our own pizza sliders from now on!
1 tube Pillsbury Grands biscuits
1 cup pizza sauce
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
24 slices of pepperoni
1. Flatten biscuits into rounds about 5" and place on a parchment lined baking sheet.
2. Spread the pizza sauce over the flattened biscuits.
3. Top the pizza sauce with shredded mozzarella and pepperoni.
4. Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes, until golden brown and the cheese is bubbly.
