I love trying new flavor combinations on top of pizza.  Let’s face it, you can put just about anything on pizza and will taste good: pineapple, pepperoni, even pierogies!


This Jalapeno Popper Pizza combines tangy cream cheese, spicy jalapenos, and of course bacon!

Jalapeno Popper Pizza Shopping Tips:

  1. Feel free to use your favorite store bought crust to speed up this recipe. Also, consider buying some pre-made dough from your local pizza shop for a few bucks.
  2. If making my homemade crust look for pizza yeast next to the dry yeast in the baking aisle.
