Jalapeno Popper Pizza Bread
Jalapeno popper pizza bread is so craveable. This recipe takes traditional jalapeno popper ingredients and turns them into the perfect cheesy pizza bread. Perfect for a quick and easy dinner, or serve them up on game day.
Oh baby! Nothing super fancy here today in the Chili Pepper Madness household. Some nights you just want to have a little fun, and oftentimes that includes pizza!
We’re talking pizza bread, a super easy way to fulfill all those comfort food cravings without a whole lot of work. It’s easy because you don’t have to mess around with making your own pizza dough.
Don’t get me wrong.
We enjoy a good homemade pizza – check out our pizza recipes – but pizza bread has a couple of advantages over traditional pizza. First, it’s different. Hard to compare! Pizza bread is thick and crisps up much differently than a traditional dough. Second, it’s fast! Some days, that’s all we want.
This recipe is ideal for a couple of hungry people on a Saturday night, hanging out with a few beers, or it works as an appetizer. Make it ahead of time without the final baking and bring it to a party.
Toss it in the oven and boom! You not only have a spicy pass around but you’re also the hit of the party. Wrap it in aluminum foil and bring it to your next tailgating party. Just toss it on the grill and wait for the cheeses to melt.
We incorporated traditional jalapeno popper ingredients here, with cream cheese, cheddar, chorizo, and of course jalapeno peppers. I got these bright red beauties from a local Mexican grocer.
I can’t stop going into the place. Excellent food choices, and their peppers scream at me every time I walk in. “Let us get in your basket!” Who am I to say “no”.
Ooey-gooey dedadence. This is definitely a party pleaser. Some of my very favorite things bundled into a single bite. Yum.
