Don't let burgers have all the fun. With sliders - tiny hamburgers easily noshed in a bite or two - all the rage, offer up a platter of pizza sliders at your Super Bowl party this year.

Not only are pizza sliders a natural party food, they also are easily assembled in just minutes and cook even faster. Best yet, they can be prepared in advance, then baked off as needed.

Since pizza topping are a pretty personal choice, we'll skip a formal recipe for this one and just offer up tips on the method.

A 1-pound bag of prepared pizza dough from the grocer will make about 36 to 40 mini pizzas, depending on how many times you reroll the scraps. Start by letting the dough come to room temperature; this makes it easier to roll.

Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface, then use a 2-inch round biscuit cutter to cut circles of dough. The scraps can be rerolled, but the more times you do this the tougher the dough is to work with. This results in thicker rounds (which are tasty, but not as attractive).

Arrange the circles on a lightly oiled baking sheet. Top each with 1 teaspoon of tomato sauce, shredded cheese and whatever toppings (finely chopped) you desire. For interest, make a mix.

Bake the pizzas at 500 F for about 6 minutes, then serve immediately.
