Jalapeño Popper Pizza

Keto Recipes > Dinner

Jalapeños and cream cheese are one of the best combinations out there! From jalapeno poppers to tasty burgers – the combinations are endless. Today I decided to try my hand at a popper pizza.

Jalapeño Popper Pizza

When I first decided to make this recipe, I played with the idea of using cream cheese as the base sauce. While it would have been super delicious, I think it would have been too cheesy for this recipe. So instead, I used a tomato paste with no added sugars.

I gotta say, it turned out pretty well. It packs the perfect amount of heat and the cream cheese soothes the spiciness of the jalapeños.
