I don't know a teen who doesn't love a slider, especially a Pizza Sliders! So when it came to the week of The Little Mermaid Show, these will hands down a win for the pre-show for a few of the hungry cast! I did a spread of their favorite toppings on these, but the possibilities are endless!

I mean look at my sweet Ursula! Does sweet and Ursula even go together? Ha… regardless she crushed it! And I have to think it had to do with these pre-show sliders 😉 I realize you are reading this for the pizza sliders, and not to see pictures of my daughter but I am just one proud mama!

Seriously though these Pizza Sliders are the Ultimate Teen-Friendly meal! I popped these in the oven on my way out to pick up another kiddo from school, and my sweet Ella got these out of oven so they could start eating, so unfortunately I didn't get a proper after photo with cheese pull but I am sure you can imagine how amazing that pull was.

Their compact size also makes them a hit at parties or sleepovers, where hungry teenagers can enjoy them without the hassle of plates and utensils. Plus, the smaller portion size helps control portions and prevents overeating – a win-win for both mom and teenager especially on opening night!
