Fans of Bagel Bites have known for a long time that when it comes to pizza, the tinier the serving, the better. Because if the pizza is delivered in miniature offerings, the calories don’t count, right?* Now Pizza Hut is moving in on the beloved freezer snack’s territory with the debut of its Mini Sliders, a new offering the chain unveiled after the Super Bowl last night.

The tiny pies are just what one would imagine — little pizzas (3.5″ in diameter) that sell in boxes of either three for $5 or nine for $10. Starting today Pizza Huts across the country will have the mini pizzas for sale with any normal toppings on the table, according to the restaurant’s Facebook page.

If the idea of miniature pizza gets your salivary glands going, Pizza Hut will be handing out the Sliders for free at many locations nationwide tomorrow between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. local time.

Or again, you could just head to the freezer section of your grocery store and stock up on Bagel Bites, which have long been popular among the tiny snack set.

*Wrong. Calories in cute food are real as well.
