This recipe was inspired by a dish I created for my spicy Thanksgiving last year. Jalapeno Scalloped Potatoes were just so crave-ably delicious. We’ve had them many, many times since. When I’m seeking inspiration for new recipes I often ask my husband what he would like. He is usually very little help as “anything you make is good” is not the kind of statement that inspires new ideas. This time, however, he asked for a pizza with potato on it. At the mere mention of potato I immediately started salivating for those dang scalloped potatoes. Light bulb! I could totally turn that into a pizza!
This pizza has all the creaminess of a white-style pizza without it feeling heavy. The potatoes are soft and slightly crisped on the edges. The jalapenos add a wonderful flavor and spice.
1. Preheat a pizza stone in an oven to 500 degrees.
2. Place the thin potato slices into a medium-size mixing bowl. The potato slices must be ultra thin in order to cook on the pizza.
3. Pour in cream and stir in garlic, chili powder, salt, and pepper.
4. Spoon some of the cream from the potato mixture onto the pizza crust. Use just enough to wet the dough.
5. Lay the potato slices on the pizza to cover it completely, slightly overlapping to ensure full coverage.
6. Sprinkle with mozzarella and parmesan cheese. Top with jalapeno slices.
7. Transfer crust to baking stone and bake in the preheated oven until cheese begins to bubble and turn golden brown.
If you wear contacts working with Jalapenos can lead to disastrous consequences. It has happened to me way too many times. I cut jalapenos for dinner, and then go to take my contacts out before bed and my eyes are absolutely on fire! Those jalapeno oils stay on your hands, even after numerous washings. In order to get them off you need to use a soap that fights oil and grease, like Dawn dish soap. Even if you aren’t taking out contacts, any interaction with your eyes can lead to a tearful experience of pure pain! Wash with dish soap. Save your eyes!
Hello, I’m Rachel and I really love food! I started cooking at age 11 when I put a half cup of baking soda into a batch of cookies instead of a half teaspoon. Because…what’s the worst that could happen, right? The cookies were a spectacular fail and it got me interested in cooking.

Whoa! This looks so crazy delicious!
I cannot wait to try this – some of my favorite pizzas have white sauce rather than red – this looks like perfection.
We have been enjoying lavash pizzas at cocktail hour because they're so easy. Your version here is just as simple but it's loaded with great flavor. Love scalloped potatoes, too, and my husband would jump for joy at the jalapeños. 🙂
we make pizza every Friday night, but I would never hae thought to add potatoes; this is definitely a very creative pie
haha, I can totally relate to the "anything you make is good" answer! It's sweet but sometimes it's nice to know what someone is in the mood for so YOU can be sweet and make it for them 🙂 This pizza is SO right up my alley and it's so creative!! Definitely going to try it – pinning!!
Love all that cheese!!!
This is such an interesting take on pizza. I think my family would love this!
Love pizza without red sauce and this one sure fits the bill; sounds fantastic!
A note about jalapeno? Capsaicin is what creates that burn when it's on your fingers and it's not water soluble which is why it doesn't wash off. It will bind to oil though. Next time try rubbing your fingertips with oil before washing with warm water; that should help.
Oh God don't get me started on contact lenses and jalapenos (or red pepper flakes). Even TWO days later, I stil burn my eyes. This looks delicious, and I love Jalapenos on pizzas!
