Calling all of you sliders lovers! There’s a new bun in town. And it's made from pizza dough!
Yep, believe it or not, these delicious little sliders are actually made with whole-wheat artisan pizza dough! So flavorful, and SO easy!
Just roll it out, use a cookie cutter to cut out the exact size of buns you would like (or you can even use cutters with scalloped edges for extra style!), pop them in the oven, and PRESTO!
Your pizza dough sliders are ready to meet their toppings!
You can fill them with whatever you’d like! But for three simple options, why not try these BLAT (Bacon Lettuce Avocado Tomato), Meatball Parmesan, or Caprese sliders. Each are super simple to prepare, and ready in minutes.
Here’s the how to!
Start with one of my favorites –- Pillsbury Whole Wheat Artisan Pizza Dough.
Roll it out on a floured surface, then use a cookie cutter to cut our 24 circles for your little slider buns.
Transfer them to a greased or cornmeal-sprinkled baking sheet, then bake for 5 minutes or until cooked. Remove and let cool.
Meanwhile, prep the ingredients for your slider fillings. If making BLAT sliders, get your bacon, lettuce, avocado and tomato slices ready. Also whip up a quick batch of Yoplait Greek yogurt sauce (see instructions below).
Layer a piece of bacon, lettuce, avocado and tomato, and a teaspoon of sauce between two pizza dough buns.
If making Caprese sliders, fill each sandwich with a slice of tomato and mozzarella, a piece of fresh basil, and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar.
If making Meatball Parmesan sliders, marinate some cooked meatballs in Muir Glen marinara sauce. Then add a single meatball and a few slices of freshly-shaved Parmesan to each slider. You can reserve extra marinara sauce for dipping.
To make the Greek yogurt sauce, whisk together Greek yogurt, Italian seasonings, garlic powder and salt until combined. Use on the sliders or double the recipe to use as an additional dipping sauce.
