Pizza night in the house

Pizza night in the house

My family and I usually have a designated pizza night a couple of times a month. My son loves to help make pizza so I’ll pick up some store-bought pizza dough and toppings and we can make it together pretty fast. It may not take us long to make but it’s our special time together and a good time to get him to open up and chat about school or whatever is on his mind. I find he opens up a bit more when he’s focused on something else but he’s still hanging out with me. 

Ingredients

  • for the sliders:
  • 1 package 12 dinner rolls
  • 3/4 cup pizza sauce
  • 12 slices mozzarella cheese
  • 45 slices pepperoni
  • 1/2 cup cooked & crumbled sausage
  • for the herb butter topping:
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted 1 stick
  • 1 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350f degrees. Spray the bottom of a 9×13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Slice the rolls horizontally (while still attached) to make a top and bottom bun.
  2. Place bottom bun into prepared baking dish. Spread pizza sauce onto rolls.
  3. Next, add 6 slices of cheese (covering all of the pizza sauce.)
  4. On top of the cheese layer, add all the slices of pepperoni.
  5. Sprinkle the top of the pepperoni with crumbled sausage.
  6. Add the remaining 6 slices of cheese on top.
  7. Then cover all of it with the top bun.
  8. Now, make the seasoned buttery topping. Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl and stir well.
  9. Then, using a brush (or a spoon) spread topping all over the sliders. Be sure to get the sides too!
  10. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for about 15 minutes.
