How to Make Jalapeno Popper Pizza

Step-by-Step

  1. I recommend using or rolling your dough out thinly. You could make two pizza's with this amount of cheese, but I wanted to really get a popper flavor, so I used a LOT of cheese on just one pizza.
  2. Bring cream cheese to room temp and place in mixing bowl with the other cheeses, diced red bell pepper and diced onion. Mix till well combined.
    NOTE: You can add diced jalapeno to the cheese if desired. Also you can use any white melting cheese instead of Monterrey Jack.
  3. Place dough on a pizza pan or in a cast iron skillet. Spread cheese mixture out over dough. Add sliced (rings) of fresh jalapeno and crumbled bacon on top.
  4. Bake till cheese is melted and bubbly. I used a 12" cast iron skillet, baked at 425º for 30 min. Cool slightly then slice and enjoy.
