Jalapeno Popper Pizza

March 5, 2018


Right around super bowl, when everyone was prepping for their game day snacks, I was seeing a lot of jalapeño popper recipes floating around.  So boring!  Right!?  So I was thinking (out loud of course) instead why not do a jalapeño popper pizza?  I backed up that decision with a, "yah, why not???".  



Case in point.  The jalapeño popper pizza.  Better than it's sad boxed friend and ten times better than you think it's going to be!  A crazy idea turned genius creation.  You're welcome, ahead of time :)



The jalapeño just kind of hits you, BOOM, with all that spicy deliciousness.  I LOVE heat but hey if you are a little timid use less jalapeños.  But what I really love is just when you get a big bite of spicy jalapeño, your next bite has cream cheese on it and it's so silky smooth and tames all those wildfires on your tongue.  It may a little too spicy for wee ones, i picked the jalapeños off or just leave them off half for my kids.  There wasn't an ounce of this bad boy left on that board.  We.  Devoured.  It. 



Without hesitation, I bring you the recipe...



  1. 1 dough ball, click for recipe

  2. olive oil

  3. ½ c mozzarella

  4. ½ c jack cheese

  5. ½ c feta cheese

  6. 1 chicken breast, cooked and shredded (season with salt and pepper)

  7. 2 pieces of cooked bacon, crumbled

  8. ½ small red onion, sliced thin

  9. 1 jalapeno, seeds removed, sliced thinly

  10. 1/3 block cream cheese

  11. salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 475

  2. Dust pizza peel with corn meal

  3. Stretch pizza dough over pizza peel

  4. Spread an even layer of olive oil over the dough

  5. Sprinkle with salt and pepper

  6. Sprinkle the mozzarella and jack cheese over the pizza

  7.  Add toppings to pizza in this order:

    1. feta cheese

    2. chicken breast

    3. bacon

    4. jalapeno

    5. onion

    6. cream cheese

  8. Top with a light sprinkle of salt and pepper again

  9. Bake for approx. 10 minutes or until the crust starts to get golden in spots

  10. Remove from oven, slice and serve





*If you don't have a pizza stone or peel that you use, just throw the dough on whatever method you usually cook your home pizza on!  But if you want one I HIGHLY recommend this one, i've had this exact one for 6 years and it's awesome.  You leave it on the bottom of your oven.  No crazy clean up required.  And i use a wooden pizza peel that has a hole at the end of the handle, for easy hang up in the pantry.
