It’s National Pizza Day! Celebrate with these 3 pizza-inspired recipes your kids will love:

Pizza Sliders

If you’re looking to switch things up, sliders are the perfect bite-sized snack — your kids are guaranteed to love this one! Pizza sliders are so quick and easy to make. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Hawaiian rolls (or dinner rolls)

  • Mozzarella cheese

  • Pepperoni slices

  • Tomato sauce

  • Italian seasoning

  • Butter

Begin by removing your Hawaiian rolls from their packaging, but don’t separate them! Take a knife and cut horizontally through the middle of the loaf until you have two halves (top and bottom). Place the bottom half of the loaf in a non-stick glass pan. Add a generous layer of tomato sauce and top with as much mozzarella cheese as you’d like. Add a layer of pepperoni slices and top with more mozzarella cheese. Now, place the top half of the bread loaf over your layers. Melt your butter in the microwave and pour/brush the melted butter over the top of your sandwiches. Sprinkle a little Italian seasoning over the top of the rolls and bake for 20 minutes (or until everything has melted).

Pizza Rolls

Like sliders, homemade pizza rolls are another great bite-sized treat — and are much tastier than Totinos! Here’s what you’ll need:

 

  • Refrigerated pizza crust tubes

  • Shredded mozzarella cheese

  • Grated parmesan cheese

  • Pepperoni slices

  • Marinara sauce

  • Italian seasoning

  • Garlic salt

 

Begin by preparing your pizza crust. Flour your countertop and roll out the dough. Add a thin layer of marinara sauce and sprinkle a little Italian seasoning and garlic salt over the crust. Add a thin layer of each cheese and top with pepperoni. Now, roll the dough until it forms a log. Pinch and seal the edge of the dough to secure its contents. Using a pizza cutter, cut your log into individual rolls. Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown.

Pizza Dip

This recipe takes the classic cheese dip to the next level. This pizza dip is the perfect appetizer for family game night! Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Italian sausage (no casings)

  • Pizza sauce or marinara

  • Shredded mozzarella cheese

  • Pepperoni slices

  • Canned biscuits

  • Olive oil

  • Garlic salt

  • Grated parmesan cheese

  • Italian seasoning

  • Fresh cut parsley

Begin by browning your Italian sausage in a cast iron skillet. In a bowl, combine your biscuits, olive oil, garlic salt, Italian seasoning, and parmesan cheese. Toss biscuits until all are well-coated. Drain your skillet until there is no excess grease, then add pizza sauce to the sausage and stir. Cover the sauce mixture in a layer of mozzarella cheese. Add pepperoni slices along the perimeter of the pan. Place biscuits in a ring over the pepperoni slices. Add a thin layer of parmesan cheese over the biscuits. Cover with foil and bake for 10-12 minutes. The biscuits should be golden brown and the mozzarella should be melted and bubbly.
