Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes
Servings 14 pizza bombs


  • 2 (13.8 oz) refrigerated pizza crust
  • 1 (15 oz) can Rico's Gourmet Nacho Cheese Sauce
  • 14-16 cubes mild cheddar cheese
  • 4-6 strips cooked bacon, chopped
  • 1 fresh jalapeno, chopped
  • chopped cilantro/parsley
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • A pinch salt
  • A pinch ground black pepper


  • Place a pizza stone on the center rack of the oven (NOTE: this is needed in order to bake pizza bombs evenly).
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and then line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Roll the refrigerated pizza crust on a flat surface. Using a 3.75-inch round cookie cutter, cut about 7-8 discs from each pizza crust.
  • You will end up with about 14-16 discs.
  • Fill the center of each with 1 teaspoon nacho sauce, top with 1 cube of cheddar, a few pieces of chopped bacon, chopped jalapeno, and a sprinkle of chopped cilantro/parsley.
  • Then, lightly brush around the outer rim of the discs with water.
  • Bring the moistened edges of the discs towards the center, lightly pleating to form a tight enclosure, and pinch to seal.
  • Insert a long wood skewer dipped in flour through the center of the roof layer of the pizza bomb in order to make a hole for steam to vent.
  • Place on the lined baking sheet, spacing them about 2 inches apart. In a small bowl, mix oil, pepper flakes, garlic, and a pinch of salt and pepper each.
  • Heat in the microwave for about 40-60 seconds. Brush the Nacho Pizza Bombs with the heated mixture.
  • Place baking sheet on top of the pizza stone and bake for about 15-18 minutes or until cooked and lightly golden brown.
  • Remove from the oven and brush them again with the oil mixture.
  • Enjoy with your favorite drink!
