Southern Cream Cheese and Pepper Jelly Pizza
2 12-inch pizzas or 1 13x18 Sheet Tray
Our ode to a classic Southern dip, but on a pizza!
Set baking stone on middle rack and preheat oven to 500ºF. Prep pizza dough, either two rounds or one tray, as discussed here.
Place dough, un-topped, onto pizza stone and bake until just starting to brown (4-6 minutes).
While pizza bakes, whisk together cream cheese and milk until smooth.
When the dough is browned, remove from oven and spread evenly with cream cheese mixture. Dollop with pepper jelly and use a spatula to spread evenly over all. Return pizza to oven for 2 minutes to warm cream cheese.
Once ready, sprinkle with the minced jalapeño (if using), scallion, and cilantro or parsley. Slice and serve.
