"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!" — bosbaby97

1 (8 ounce) package
cream cheese, softened
1 (1 ounce) package
ranch dressing mix
1 (12 inch)
pre-baked pizza crust
fresh jalapeno pepper, seeded and sliced
1 (3 ounce) jar
cooked real bacon pieces (such as Hormel™)
shredded Mexican cheese blend
seasoned bread crumbs
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!!!!
The filling was great but the topping destroyed it for us. Recommend using crumbled Ritz Crackers instead of the breadcrumbs.
Quite different, but a wonderful combi. Thanks so much.
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 :)
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. :)
This was so good. My family really enjoyed it. I used 2 pre cooked flat breads and it was just perfect!! Thanks for sharing this recipe.
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!
Absolutely awesome pizza! Have made 4 times at least in the last month & making again for my sister tomorrow.
