Hey, y'all! I am excited to introduce you to my newest recipe: Green Chili Jam Bacon + Date Cauliflower Pizza. A mouthful? Certainly. Jam-packed with flavor? Like you've never tasted before.
Thank you to both Big Whisk Brands + Green Chili Jam for partnering with me on this post, along with y'all for supporting those that make JCP Eats possible. All opinions are my own. This post was originally published August 2020, Updated September 2021.
The star of the show is the Green Chili Jam, which is a product of Louisville-based Big Whisk Brands. I recently became aware of the jam, and to understate, I'll say this: it's incredible.
About Green Chili Jam
Green Chili Jam is a custom product that is made for my fellow food lovers. It starts off sweet, yet finishes with the perfect amount of heat. It's used in a plethora of ways: as a topping, sauce base, dressing, glaze/marinade, and simply as a jam/spread. Natural incorporations include tacos, pizzas, nachos, meats, and biscuits -- however, if you're like me, a simple taste of it will have you planning an entire menu based around it!
The best part? Award-winning Green Chili Jam is all-natural, gluten free, and vegan. Need I say more?
Green Chili Jam Bacon + Date Cauliflower Pizza
I was inspired to make this recipe due to my recent addiction: medjool dates. Dates are a variety of sweet, flavorful fruit -- they are great to use in cooking and for snacking! The heat/kick of the Green Chili Jam paired really well with the sweetness of the dates, too. For a little salt, I decided to add bacon - because, well, everything is better with bacon. Am I right (or am I right)?
Lastly, I chose to use a store-bought cauliflower crust. You can most certainly make this on a traditional pizza crust or any other flatbread of your choosing. I chose cauliflower, as it has proven to be a go-to during my weight loss journey. I purchase my cauliflower crusts from Kroger and Trader Joe's.

It's as easy as that, y'all!
