I guess I’m just a sucker for pizza. Growing up in Burbank, California, my friends and I and our family spent many fun times at Shakey’s Pizza Parlor on San Fernando Road enjoying their many varieties of pizzas and subs. And after all these years, they are still there today.
You all know that I love different flavor combinations for my pizzas so when I flipped through the pages of the October 2016 issue of the Food Network Magazine, you can only imagine my joy when I spied “Pizza with Jalapeno Popper Crust” and “White Pizza with Everything Bagel Crust.” Oh, my goodness, I thought to myself. Two of my favorite flavor combinations, but in pizza form. And yes, I had to try making them myself. See for yourself:
Thanks to Food Network Magazine, I now have two new pizza flavor profiles that I just love. I did make a few minor tweaks to each recipe. I used a one pound package of refrigerated dough from Food Lion and cut the dough into two pieces. I then stretched each piece into a nice shape. Because I was only using half of the dough that is called for in each recipe, the other ingredients were cut in half.
For the Pizza with Jalapeno Popper Crust, I replaced fresh tomatoes for the marinara sauce and replaced the fresh jalapeno peppers with candied jalapeno peppers that I found at a local shop.

For the White Pizza with Everything Bagel Crust, I did not use the shallots but added dried onions to the seed mixture.

Thanks, Food Network Magazine, I now have two new recipes to add to my list of favorite pizzas. Both of these new flavor profiles offer something different for the palate, crispy crust, cheesy goodness and fun toppings.
I will definitely make these again. See ya around the pizza oven ~ Barbara
