COPYCAT: PALIO'S THE "JIMMY"



Happy Monday! I'm here to share a meal that's perfect for those weeknights when you're completely exhausted or have unexpected company coming over. It takes less than 30 minutes to prep, costs less than $8 and can feed about three people. 

One of our family's favorite pizza is The "Jimmy" from Palio's Pizza Cafe. It's the perfect blend of spicy and savory. I recently found a quick and much less expensive way to copy this favorite. With the price of one there, I can easily make two pizzas and still have some change left over! All you need is a ready-to-bake pizza and a few simple ingredients. 



Before...



and after...



Ingredients
1 large pepperoni pizza (Papa Murphy's Take 'n Bake)
1 C frozen roasted corn (Trader Joe's)
2 jalapenos (unseeded, sliced or diced)
3 strips of bacon (cut into bite-sized pieces)

Directions
Preheat the oven at 425 degrees F.

The only items that need to be prepped ahead of time were the jalapenos and bacon. I roasted the jalapenos in the oven (or you can use a cast iron pan) first before slicing them. I also cooked the bacon and took them off the pan just before they got crispy. 

Toss everything evenly over your ready-to-bake pizza and bake it for 12-15 minutes. Enjoy!

*Side note: Make sure you use gloves when handling the jalapenos... unless you want your hands to be burning for a good four hours!
