Poppers AND Pizza? It's like a little Game Day celebration in your mouth. Touchdown! We made these exactly as written with lizard_C9's Italian Feather Bread Pizza Dough (my personal fave here on AR). My DH doesn't do well with pepper seeds, so I had to seed the peppers for his pizza. Mine was a combo of seeded and au natural peppers. Mine was better, not because it had more heat (jalapeños aren't very hot), but because it tasted more of the peppers themselves. If you don't want heat, by all means seed your peppers, but I'd suggest using extra peppers to make sure they're not muted by the sauce. Speaking of the sauce, it has a lovely oniony smoky thing going on that would make an excellent base for a mushroom pizza. Anyway, if you like poppers even a little bit, you're going to love this pizza!
EDIT - I've probably made this 8-10 times since my initial review. it is literally our favorite pizza now. An easy weekday lunch crust is Flatout's Artisan Thin Pizza crust, super thin, and just delicious. I keep the base sauce sans bacon grease on hand for several different pizzas, then when I fry up the bacon for this one, I brush bacon grease onto the pizza skin, sauce it, then top it. I bake it in my Breville Smartoven. So easy, and takes less than 30 minutes start to finish. BTW - Jalapeño peppers freeze exceptionally well. Simply slice or dice them, put them in a quart freezer bag, and freeze. They hold their shape and don't get at all watery.
