Spicy Pimento Cheese Pizza. If you like spicy, you'll like this pizza! Homemade jalapeno pimento cheese and extra jalapeno + hot sauce toppings make this a spicy food lovers dream.
A couple months ago I was having dinner with a friend at Brixx and saw a pimento cheese pizza on the menu. I was torn between ordering that or another pizza that had sriracha sauce, and unsurprisingly I chose spicy. (It seems my tastebuds prefer spicy foods these days, and I have to stop myself from putting sriracha on literally everything I eat.)
So while I never actually ate the pimento cheese pizza at Brixx, they were my inspiration to make it. And make it spicy!
The restaurant version includes crumbled bacon and red peppers though I just stuck with the spinach, added tomato, hot sauce and extra jalapeno.
If you're not a spicy-food freak like me, you might want to choose only one between the hot sauce and jalapeno, especially if you are using the homemade skinny pimento cheese version that already includes jalapeno. Or remove the seeds of the pepper to make it more mild.
But you did click on the post for SPICY pimento cheese pizza, so I say go all out! Maybe just have some milk nearby.
- Preheat oven to 425°F
- In a cast iron pan, roll out pizza dough.
- Scoop the pimento cheese on top and spread evenly, adding more if needed
- Add sriracha sauce, spinach, tomato and jalapeno
- Bake for 12-14 minutes or until crust is browned.
If you want to opt for a less spicy version, leave off the extra jalapeno peppers and/or hot sauce, or remove the seeds from the pepper
