I sometimes title recipes as “bests” here on the SweetPhi blog. Like the best pumpkin loaf, or the best turkey tacos. This pizza definitely falls in the “bests” category, so let me tel you the story of how this 5 ingredient pizza recipe came to be.

So you know how there are somethings that may seem ‘weird’ food wise? Like dipping fries into milkshakes. That combo is crazy good. Or like making Korean tacos, Asian food mixed with Mexican food? It just works.

Just like this pizza.

It’s crazy good and unexpected.

It started when we had cream cheese as a topping on pizza at a restaurant. We were hesitant to order it. Cream cheese. On a pizza? Ummm…weird. Cream cheese should be used as a bagel spread, or in a dip, right? RIGHT?

Well, when we tried the pizza, omg. It was so good. Was it the cream cheese? I had to try it out at home to see.

And yup, I’m here to tell you: pizza with cream cheese on top is the best.

I’m also really digging enchiladas (like these 5 ingredient shrimp and black bean enchiladas) and have a ton of jalapenos growing in my garden (as you know from my 5 ingredient jalapeno cheddar dip last year, and this year it’s the same!) , so while we were getting crazy with the pizza toppings, why not use enchilada sauce as a pizza sauce?

The end result? Amazing!

We even made it at my in-laws for Sunday dinner, when they were having one of their famous pizza parties where pizzas are made using a kettlepizza grill attachment (here and here are past ones).

5 Ingredient Jalapeno Enchilada Pizza
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 8 slices
  • 1 (10 oz.) thin premade pizza crust
  • ¼ cup enchilada sauce (I like using green, medium heat)
  • 2 fresh jalapenos, thinly sliced
  • 1 ½ cups cheese, shredded (can use Mexican blend, or mozzarella)
  • 2 oz. cream cheese
  1. Preheat oven to 425.
  2. Place a pizza crust on a baking sheet.
  3. Spread sauce over the crust, then sprinkle cheese around the pizza and place jalapeno slices over the cheese. Spoon dollops of cream cheese around the pizza.
  4. Bake for 12 minutes, then check for doneness and bake further until brown around edges and cheese is all melted (mine usually takes 15 minutes).
A 5 Ingredient meal that's great for any light meal with a kick! And, a perfect option for when you need a vegetarian dish.

    It looks soo cheesy, I love it. I think my children also would also be happy to try this. Thanks for sharing.

    I made this for dinner last night and my husband and I both LOVED it! This pizza will definitely be added to our Friday night easy meal rotation. I was able to assemble the pizza while my oven preheated, and then while the pizza was in the oven I threw together a quick arugula-cherry tomato-avocado salad to accompany it. Easy and delicious! I used pickled jalapeno slices because that’s what I had on hand (and I’m super sensitive to the fresh ones and inevitably end up with burning hands no matter how careful I am). We were also surprised how much we liked the *cheap) thin crust I picked up from Aldi. I’m excited that I now have an extra crust and enchilada sauce in the freezer waiting for the next time I make this!

      Thank you SO MUCH for coming back and leaving this awesome comment! So happy you loved this pizza (your side salad sounds amazing) and good to know one can use pickled jalapeno slices, and about the thin crust from Aldi! Also great idea about freezing the leftover sauce, I’m totally going to do that!

      • Kathryn

        We are having it again just a week later! We needed a quick dinner idea and my husband requested it! 😊

        • Sweetphi

          Yay! Makes me so happy to hear that!
