Jalapeno Popper Pizza

I hope you don't mind if I post a dinner blog.

Are you all ok with that? Trust me this pizza is totally worth it!

I thought since my blog IS called Morning Noon Night I could post some recipes for the noon and night time frame... Not that I have anything against cake for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, but I thought this would be a great week night recipe idea.

Or do any of you have pizza nights in your home? My boys LOVE pizza, my skinny mini can pack away 2-3 pieces!

This pizza is a delicious play on the classic bar food and the great part is you can make it as creamy or spicy as you like!

Heres my recipe:

For the Pizza:
Your favorite pizza dough
6 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 cup shredded pepper jack cheese
1 shallot sliced
1 1/2 fresh jalapenos, sliced
1 teaspoon olive oil
4 slices of bacon, diced, cooked, and drained

Preheat oven to 475 degrees and grease a pizza wheel with olive oil and sprinkle lightly with corn meal.
I used an already made dough from Trader Joes to make my weeknight dinner even easier.
Allow the dough to come to room temperature on a lightly floured surface and either roll or stretch to a ten inch round (or so).
In a small bowl stir together the jalapenos, shallots and 1 teaspoon of olive oil and set aside.

Spread the prepared dough with the 6 ounces of softened cream cheese.
Sprinkle with the cup of shredded pepper jack cheese.
And top with the shallots, jalapenos and cooked bacon.

Bake on the center rack of your preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until very golden.
Let cool slightly and enjoy!

  1. Great article and right to the point. I don't know if this is truly the best place to ask but do you folks have any idea where to employ some professional writers.
