  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Place the bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon to drain on paper towels, reserving drippings in the pan.
  3. Saute onion in bacon drippings until translucent, 5 to 7 minutes. Add garlic; continue to saute until garlic is golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Season the onion mixture with cumin, oregano, and black pepper. Stir cream cheese and sour cream into the onion mixture until smooth and spreadable.
  4. Spread the cream cheese mixture evenly over the pizza dough; top with mozzarella and Cheddar cheeses. Arrange bacon and jalapeno pepper rings over the cheese layer. Sprinkle parsley over the entire pizza.
  5. Bake in preheated oven until crust is firm and crispy and the cheese is browned and bubbly, about 30 minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • Sometimes I make a batch of this, load it into a gallon bag, snip off a corner, and pipe around the edge of the crust. I then fold the outer edge of dough over the mixture, towards the inside of the pie and seal: stuffed crust!
  • This is also fantastic cooked outdoors on a grill!

Delicious! I followed the recipe exactly, and made a jelly-roll sized rectangle pizza out of it, and had a little "sauce" left over. I can't handle too much heat, so I soaked the jalapeno rings ...
