This quick and easy recipe was my winning entry in RSC #5. This dish is colorful and a southwest spin on pizza. It is very spicy with the chipotles and the jalapeño cheese. I served it with a green salad and simple dessert. Update: Since several reviewers were having trouble with the crust, I tried this again & agree that two cans of crescent rolls would be an improvement in order to not stretch the dough so thin. I have also made this on a pizza crust & into quesadillas and liked those options too. I hope you enjoy my spicy creation!

My husband wanted a pizza and I found this one, when I went searching, We loved all the fresh ingredients, I gave my cheese to him and it was still great. Made for ZWT8.
Sooooo good! And wicked simple to make. I had to omit the peas, but otherwise followed the recipe. Loved the little bit of heat and flavor from the chipotle chile and used a combination of pepper jack cheese and mexican cheddar. I would cook the crescent dough for a few minutes before adding the topping next time. Made for Las Mistico Magicos Sirenas of ZWT5.
