Original recipe yields 1 16-inch pizza



  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Place the bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon to drain on paper towels, reserving drippings in the pan.
  3. Saute onion in bacon drippings until translucent, 5 to 7 minutes. Add garlic; continue to saute until garlic is golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Season the onion mixture with cumin, oregano, and black pepper. Stir cream cheese and sour cream into the onion mixture until smooth and spreadable.
  4. Spread the cream cheese mixture evenly over the pizza dough; top with mozzarella and Cheddar cheeses. Arrange bacon and jalapeno pepper rings over the cheese layer. Sprinkle parsley over the entire pizza.
  5. Bake in preheated oven until crust is firm and crispy and the cheese is browned and bubbly, about 30 minutes.

I made this for Recipe Group. Of course I tweaked (= I used red onion, turkey bacon, and two 4 oz cans of diced jalapeños. I had pre-cooked my bacon, so I used olive oil and butter to sauté the onion and garlic. Then I added the chopped, cooked bacon and the jalapeños, before stirring in the spices and cream cheese. I made a 2 ingredient pizza crust =D and, following Molly's lead, and stuffed it with string cheese, split in half lengthwise. I spread the cream cheese mixture on the crust, then sprinkled the cheeses and parsley over the top. All my tweaks worked fine, and it looked prettier than I expected (= But it set my mouth on fire! Yow! Next time I will use 1/2-1 can of jalapeños! One last, bizarre sounding tweak: after a couple bites, I spread a thin layer of strawberry jelly on the pizza [that's what I put on jalapeño poppers and the jalapeño popper grilled cheese].



OMG! Fantastic!



This was the BEST jalapeno popper pizza recipe that I have ever made or tried! I used *Sherri*'s personal recipe 'Basic Pizza Dough' for the crust, and stuffed the crust w/ mozzarella for extra cheesy goodness. This was so good that hubby already said that I have to make this for him to take to the guys at work. I seriously think that I 'sauce' would even be great just as a dip for pita chips, mmmm. I will be using this recipe again and again~YUM! Thanks for sharing another winner, Jan! :)
