Pizza Hut has introduced “pizza sliders,” which are smaller than its personal pies and can be ordered in batches for families who want to customize their orders with different toppings. The 3.5-inch sliders cost $10 for a box of nine or $5 for a box of three.

Nine would be the equivalent of a large pie, which has eight slices and also costs $10.

The sliders were inspired by a popular dish Pizza Hut offered in India called the “iPan,” which were sold in batches of three.

The pizza sliders let customers pick three different toppings. Carrie Walsh, senior vice president of marketing for Pizza Hut, notes that the most customization people can usually get now is ordering a pie with different toppings on each half.

With the sliders, Walsh said people “don’t have to worry about your mushrooms spilling over on my cheese side.”
