Jalapeno Popper Pizzas-Pampered Chef

I have made these a few times & always get rave reviews from my husband and friends. Add more jalapenos if you like them super spicy. The sauteeing & the cream cheese tend to mellow the heat of the jalapenos. I leave the seeds & membrane on the jalapeno to maximize on the heat. ENJOY!

    These are DELICIOUS. I make them all the time and they get eaten up so fast! I always use the thin crust pizza dough, and that way you don't need to stretch it out.. just cut and go. Also, I think it's plenty spicy with just one jalapeno.
