  • 8 slices bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 3/4 cup chopped onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 (8 ounce) package reduced-fat cream cheese, cut into cubes
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 prepared 16-inch pizza dough pastry
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese, or more to taste
  • 1/2 cup shredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese
  • 4 jalapeno peppers, sliced into thin rings
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes


  • 1   Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  • 2   Place the bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon to drain on paper towels, reserving drippings in the pan.
  • 3   Saute onion in bacon drippings until translucent, 5 to 7 minutes. Add garlic; continue to saute until garlic is golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Season the onion mixture with cumin, oregano, and black pepper. Stir cream cheese and sour cream into the onion mixture until smooth and spreadable.
  • 4   Spread the cream cheese mixture evenly over the pizza dough; top with mozzarella and Cheddar cheeses. Arrange bacon and jalapeno pepper rings over the cheese layer. Sprinkle parsley over the entire pizza.
  • 5   Bake in preheated oven until crust is firm and crispy and the cheese is browned and bubbly, about 30 minutes.
