A year ago, I shared my Pepperoni Pizza Sliders and they went crazy so I thought I’d give a fresh take on those delicious game day sandwiches with these Deluxe Pizza Sliders!
If you’ve been reading Sugar, Spice & Glitter for awhile you may remember that I’m a huge football fan.
My grandfather was a coach, my dad and brother-in-law both had the option to go pro (my dad chose the military instead) and I even played in high school… until the day that I couldn’t raise my arms above my head anymore because everyone else had kept growing after 5th grade and I hadn’t!
Needless to say, game day is a big deal around here and I don’t want to miss it by being stuck in the kitchen – but I still want some scrumptious eats to enjoy while we all hang out and watch the game.
I like serving a variety of appetizers and easy-serve dishes like these Pizza Sliders and stocking the fridge with Coca-Cola. This year, I’m also stocking up on COCA-COLA® ZERO SUGAR for my guests who want that real Coca-Cola® flavor without any sugar.
These deluxe pizza sliders are better than pizza and way easier to whip up. It takes about 5 minutes to throw this together and you can make it the day before and stick it in the fridge until about 20 minutes before it’s time to serve.
I like adding a good hit of Italian seasoning to the buns and some hot sauce to the tomato sauce for a little bit of a flavor kick – but the best thing about these pizza sliders is that you really get to make them your own! Swap out the toppings for your favorites or make a couple different batches to accommodate for different pizza preferences – whatever works for your crew!
To show you just how quick and easy these deluxe pizza sliders are to make, I whipped up this 1 minute video. Check it out and then scroll down to grab your free printable for our deluxe pizza sliders recipe!

How to Make Easy Pizza Sliders
Preheat oven to 325F.
Slice the sheet of rolls across the middle, resulting in a top layer and bottom layer of 12 connected rolls.
Place the bottom half of the rolls in a casserole dish.
Mix the hot sauce and pizza sauce together in a bowl and then apply generously to the bottom half of the bread.
Top with a generous handful or two of cheese to keep the toppings in place.
Add all of your chosen toppings – you can top with more cheese if you want really cheesy sliders.
Melt the butter in the microwave, heating for 20 seconds and then stir in the Italian seasoning. Pour or brush it on the top of the bread.
Cover and bake the pizza sliders for 20 minutes until the cheese is melted and butter has been fully absorbed, leaving golden sandwich tops.
Cut and serve.
