I also just really want to make these little sliders because they’re fun, easy, and delicious. I just love the idea of making pizza more of an appetizer, so these are great!

Let’s talk details, start with the roasted garlic

I wanted to come up with a way to make these really unique and special. I’ve been loving the addition of roasted garlic to recipes, so I thought a little roasted garlic butter would be perfect.

Roasting garlic is really easy. If you’ve never done it before it really adds a layer of deliciousness to your recipes.

Start with the garlic since it takes time to roast in the oven. Simply slice the top portion of the garlic head off to reveal the cloves. Then place the garlic on a small piece of foil, drizzle with olive oil, and wrap the garlic up. Roast for about forty minutes, until the garlic is deeply golden and soft.

While the garlic is roasting, make the rolls

The rolls are the simplest. You need a really soft loaf of pull part dinner rolls. I used the King’s Hawaiian Rolls, which I think are readily available for everyone!

Slice the rolls in half lengthwise, layer on your favorite marinara sauce, mozzarella cheese, and then provolone. Finish with freshly sliced pepperoni and a dusting of parmesan cheese.

Add the top half of the rolls and that’s it, done, see, so simple. But the roasted garlic butter makes everything special.

Finish with garlic butter

When the garlic has finished roasting, you can make the garlic butter.

Squeeze out the roasted garlic cloves and add them to a small bowl with the butter, plenty of fresh sage, dried basil, oregano, parsley, and chili flakes. I go heavy on the chili flakes, but do what’s right for you! Then add a little parmesan cheese.

Spoon the butter over the top of the rolls, letting it seep into the nooks and crannies. Wrap the rolls in foil and throw them into the oven.

As the rolls bake, your kitchen slowly starts to smell like your favorite pizzeria, which is, of course, delicious.

The garlic butter on top of the rolls melts over the rolls, really seeping down into the nooks and crannies. The sage in the butter gets crisp, and everything turns golden and perfect.

When you pull the rolls out of the oven the cheese will be bubbling away. The excitement to pull apart each roll and enjoy them is suddenly immediate.

And that’s exactly what you should do! Serve the rolls right away while the cheese is still warm and gooey.

These sliders are like pizza, but in a fun new form, and with delicious garlic butter in every bite. The garlic butter really does makes these rolls better than all the rest!

I’m excited to have these on hand for Sunday night games, but also for the upcoming holiday season! Great for Friendsgiving, Thanksgiving, and all the holiday parties to come in December! They’re even festive and pretty.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • 1. Preheat the oven to 400° F.
    2. Slice off the top portion of the garlic head to expose some of the cloves. Place the garlic on a piece of foil. Drizzle with olive oil, wrap it up, and bake for 40-55 minutes, until deeply golden and very soft.
    3. Meanwhile, place the bottom half of the dinner rolls onto a baking sheet lined with parchment. Top with pizza sauce, mozzarella, provolone, and then pepperoni. Sprinkle with half the parmesan. Place the top half of the roll over the cheese. 
    4. Let the garlic cool, then squeeze the cloves out into a bowl. Add the butter, remaining parmesan, sage, basil, oregano, parsley, and chili flakes. Mash the cloves into the butter with a fork. Spread the butter over the top of the rolls. Cover the rolls and bake 10 minutes. Remove the foil and continue baking another 10 minutes, until the cheese has melted.
    5. Brush with any remaining garlic butter, serve immediately.

    Flavor was delicious, but I agree with others stating it was soggy. Next time, I would either put the marinara completely on the side, or change the layering. The garlic butter on top is what made these stand out.

    1. Hey Megan,
      I love to hear that this recipe was enjoyed, thanks so much for giving it a try! Have a great week! xTieghan

    These are amazing! I tripled the recipe and they turned out perfect. I didn’t need as much of the mozzarella and provolone. I spread a thin layer of sauce on the top and bottom of the rolls. I didn’t have a problem with a soggy bottom. I also would recommend cooking them only about 6 minutes uncovered. Mine got a little too brown. I will definitely make these again, and they are great as leftovers!

    1. Hey Katie,
      Wonderful!! Thanks a lot for making this recipe, I am so glad to hear it was enjoyed. Have a great Saturday! xTieghan
