Jalapeno Popper Pizza


I’m OBSESSED with the pizza rounds.  I maxed out on my first contribution because I knew that they would make easy lunches for my daughter but I find myself using them all the time for dinners instead.  Anytime I don’t feel like cooking, I pull out the pizza rounds and top them with some ingredients out of the fridge.  This pizza was a little more planned than my typical.  As soon as I saw those beautiful jalapeños in the basket, I wanted to make a pizza inspired by one of my favorite appetizers – jalapeño poppers.

One of my favorite things about the pizza rounds is that everyone in the family can have a pizza tweaked to their preference.  I didn’t put jalapeños on my daughters because she doesn’t care for the heat but I really loaded up hubby’s pizza with the jalapeños.  I was somewhere in between.
