I came up with this idea one day while eating a calzone with a side of Jalapeno Poppers. I thought a jalapeno popper pizza would be awesome. I came home and searched online for a recipe like the one I had in mind and found recipes for jalapeno popper pizzas, but none quite like my idea. We tried it this evening and found it to be delicious and EASY!! This would also make a great appetizer sliced into small squares. Can't wait to try this with different meats, like sausage or ham!

  • Stir together the softened cream cheese and ranch dressing mix in a bowl until smooth. Spread the mixture on the pre-baked crust. Sprinkle the jalapeno slices and bacon on top of the cream cheese mixture; then top with the shredded cheese.

  • Combine the melted butter and seasoned bread crumbs. Sprinkle the mixture over the top of the pizza. Bake in preheated oven until the bread crumbs are nicely browned and the cheese has melted, about 15 minutes.

My pre-baked pizza crusts were the small 8" thin crust variety comes in a package of 4. Mixed cream cheese ranch dressing and diced pickled jalapeno since I didn't have fresh. Instead of the bacon bits I used pepperoni and didn't do the buttered bread crumbs at all. I made up 2 of the pizza crusts and have more than enough of the mixture for the other 2 at another time. We loved it! Jalapeno poppers are my DH's favorite snack food next to pizza and now you've gone and combined the two! Accept my sincere thanks!!!! Read More

The filling was great but the topping destroyed it for us. Recommend using crumbled Ritz Crackers instead of the breadcrumbs. Read More

This was good and hubby LOVED it! I used 'New York Italian Pizza Dough' from here for the crust and made a 14-inch pizza. I used diced jarred jalapenos (did not measure amount used) and also added on some cheddar that I had left. I did not use all the breadcrumbs called for but more of just a sprinkling. This was fun for something different and I would make it again! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

Fantastic!!! Admittedly I did skip the butter/bread crumb topping because it just didn't sound appealing. Made a batch of Quick and Easy Pizza Crust from this site for the crust. Cut it into squares and served as an appetizer. Everybody loved it; it was gone very quickly! It really is yummy and I'll make it again soon. Thanks:) Read More

This would have been stellar had we not gotten the hottest jalapeno I've ever eaten. I LOVE hot things. Eat it all the time. Use jalapenos cut up as a salad topping. However this pepper had tears running down my face my nose running drooling... it was not a good look. But the pizza would have been great had we gotten normal peppers instead of the freak of nature ones we seemed to purchase! Read More

Nice! We had to kick it up a notch and add jalapeno powder because the fully seeded and diced peppers didn't have enough. I used the ranch spice mix recipe from this site and enjoyed it quite a bit - will definitely make this again! Read More
