Easy, cheesy and over the top delicious, these Baked Pepperoni Pizza Sliders
will be the hit of your next get together or party!March is one of my favorite times of the year! If you've been reading my blog for awhile, you know that I am a HUGE college basketball fan. If you're a fan too, then you know that March is tournament time! Time to fill out your brackets and see how far you can go before it gets busted. For me, it's typically the first weekend 😂 But I do it anyway just for fun and I love getting competitive with my boys. We have a group bracket that we all just finished filling out and everyone is already talking big about how they're going to be the champion. Fun times for sure.
These sliders are insanely easy to put together. You build them on a baking sheet, pour an amazing buttery sauce over the top, then pop them in the oven for 10 minutes. Such a great recipe to serve to a crowd and you won't be stuck in the kitchen during the game.
To go with the sliders I love to serve my favorite CK Mondavi wines to the adults in the group. CK Mondavi is the perfect game-day wine as it has amazing quality for the price. I am in love with the Moscato, which has floral and fruity notes with a touch of lemon zest, but for those who don't like their wine so sweet, the Sauvignon Blanc is another favorite. It's filled with grapefruit and citrus flavors and ends with a crisp, refreshing finish that pairs well with most foods, especially these sliders!
Look for CK Mondavi’s special game day promotions on their wine bottles in stores now through March 31, 2018! You can save $3 on two bags of Bridgford Pepperoni or $3 on two bags of any chips!
Baked Pepperoni Pizza Sliders
Author: Sarah Bates | The Chef Next Door
12 bread rolls or slider buns
2 cups pizza sauce
3 ounce package pepperoni slices
8 thick slices mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted
2 Tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1 Tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon salt
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Place the bottom halves of the rolls onto a large rimmed baking sheet so that the sides are touching. Top each evenly with the pizza sauce, pepperoni, cheese slices and tops of the rolls.
In a small bowl, whisk together the butter, Parmesan cheese, parsley, garlic powder, oregano and salt. Brush the rolls with the butter topping.
Bake until the sliders are warmed through and the cheese has melted, about 10 minutes. Serve immediately.
