ORLANDO, Fla. -

Anyway you slice it, it's still a pizza, but Pizza Hut introduced today a new menu selection aimed at families that want more variety. 

Customers can now order "Pizza Sliders".  The sliders are smaller than the chain's personal pies and can be ordered in batches for families that want to customize their orders with different toppings. They will be available in either a $10 box of nine or a $5 box of three.

A slider is 3.5 inches across, while a personal pie is 6 inches.

The roll out right after the Super Bowl is intended to generate excitement during a time when people may have had enough pizza. After the 2012 game, the chain launched its $10 Dinner Box, which helped grow sales over the past year.
