Notes

Tips

  • If you don't want to use fresh mozzarella as I did, no problems at all, just be sure to pick a cheese that melts well. Colby, Havarti, Grated Cheddar, Gruyère, Swiss Cheese.
  • Brushing the sliders with melted butter before baking is not absolutely essential, but it gives them a lovely sheen and a little extra flavour.

Substitutions and Alternative Filling Ideas

To be absolutely honest you can substitute absolutely any filling you want in these sliders, use your favourite cheese, sprinkles the buns with seeds instead of parmesan, load the pizza sliders with other pizza fillings, sundried tomatoes, capsicum, olives, pepperoni are all yummy, or you can try some of my other slider options listed below.
  • Hawaiian sliders: Ham, cheese, and pineapple
  • Leftover sliders: Turkey/Chicken, cranberry or a slice of apple, cheese
  • Caprese sliders: Tomato, basil, mozzarella
  • Breakfast sliders: Scrambled eggs, cheese
  • Lasagne sliders: Left-over bolognese sauce, spinach and cheese.
  • Corn sliders: creamed corn, cheese
