Jalapeno Popper Pizza

This recipe is definitely one of my husband’s favorite dinners. It’s a perfect snack for guys night. It has three of his requirements for a well balanced meal: bacon, jalapeno and cheese. It also has a good does of veggies from the jalapeno peppers and the red peppers. You can use a homemade pizza crust if you would like, but since this is usually one of our quick dinners with just use premade. You can also adjust how hot it is by adding the jalapeno seeds. I usually add one or two jalapenos worth of seeds and it’s a good compromise between what my husband likes (mouth on fire heat) and what I like (being able to taste my food). You could adjust how much cheese there is if someone in your house likes super cheesy, just put extra cheddar on part of the pizza.

1 12″ premade pizza crust
9 slices bacon, cut into 1/2″ pieces
1 cup chopped red peppers
4 jalapenos, seeded and diced (save the seeds if you like your food little hotter)
1 8 oz package fat free cream cheese
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
In a large pan, cook the bacon until almost crispy. Add the red and jalapeno peppers the pan (add the seeds too if you like), cook until the peppers have softened. Stir the bacon and pepper mixture into the cream cheese. Spread over the pizza crust and sprinkle with cream cheese. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the cheddar cheese has melted.
