Pizza With a Twist


Yes, yes I know… It’s been forever and a week.  Now that I’ve passed the MA state insurance producer’s exam I’ll have way more time to blog!  I think at least one person out there is happy to read that… maybe?

Sophie and I were aiming to make a non-boring, non-redsauce based pizza.  Our collective scatterbrain genius came up with this gem: bacon and jalapeno alfredo sauce pizza.

The thought process started out with pizza but not normal pizza.  Then we tossed around the idea of a white sauce and ground turkey.  Then we didn’t want to use turkey… well, it doesn’t really matter.  All that mattes is the end result!

What we used:

  • Premade pizza crust (we cheated for time’s sake)
  • Alfredo sauce (again cheated for time’s sake… we used the packets)
  • Jalapeno peppers
  • Red peppers
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Monterrey jack cheese
  • Bacon
  • Tomatoes

The first steps are all prep steps.  Dice up your bacon, jalapenos and peppers.  We sliced the tomatoes nice and thin since I really don’t like huge chunks of tomatoes in anything.   After everything is sliced start cooking up the bacon.  You can use a frying pan or a wok (what we used).  While you get that going, you can start heating up your alfredo sauce.  I wanted to make sure most of the jalapeno got to soak in the alfredo sauce as it was being warmed up so the spices would mix in with the sauce.

After the sauce is ready, spread the sauce on the crust.  How much you use is entirely up to you.  We put a generous layer of sauce on the crust.  Next up was the mozzarella cheese layer.  Once the sauce is spread out and the cheese are dumped on, we laid out the tomato slices.

The next layer was bacon.  On top of the bacon we drizzled the rest of the sauce.  Then the peppers were added.  The top layer was the Monterrey jack cheese.  Put it in the oven per the instructions on your cheater crust and bam!  Not boring pizza!

  1. I am happy to hear that!! :-)!!! I am actually going to be in Boston next week for my Breast Cancer walk…not sure if I will be up Thursday night or not yet, but we should try and meet up for a drink and bring the super cute girl of yours with you!
