The details

Roasting the garlic

To make these pizza sliders, you’ll begin by roasting the garlic. Roasted garlic is different than regular garlic in that it actually has a less potent flavor. However, roasted garlic has more depth of flavor. It truly adds to these pizza sliders. The same is true of the roasted shallot. Roasting the shallot helps bring out more depth of flavor in the shallot.

Place the garlic, (cut in half horizontally – you want the garlic heads exposed) and shallot (ends and outer shell removed) in aluminum foil, then drizzle with olive oil. Wrap up and bake in 400F oven for 30-40 minutes. The garlic will be a golden color and will easily be able to be pierced with a knife. Same is true with the shallot. You should easily be able to pierce it with a knife.

Making the garlic butter and toasting the buns

After roasting the garlic and shallot, you’ll mix this with butter, parsley, thyme and oregano. This butter mixture is then spread on the bottom of the dinner rolls. Bake the rolls in a 350F oven for 10 minutes to lightly toast the bread.

assembling and baking

Once the bottom buns are toasted, add the marinara, cheeses and topping of your choice. Place the top buns on top and brush the top buns with the garlic butter mixture. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes to melt the cheese and lightly toast the buns.
