Pizza at Home - Sweet Summer Corn Pizza

Every week, another new pizza! 

As I was walking through the supermarket with Theresa in the produce section, I saw that sweet corn is just coming into season. I bet I could make a pizza out of that! 

A couple of fresh ears of corn should do the trick. 

I cut the corn kernels off the cobs, but I'm not quite done with the cobs yet. 

I heated some garlic and onions in some oil, then added my corn kernels. 

After cutting off the kernels, there's still some good corn flavor left in the cobs. I scraped the juices out and into a bowl. 

I don't know what this mash is, but I used it along with water to make my pizza dough, using my normal recipe. 

And normally I'd flour the parchment, but because it's a corn pizza, I thought corn meal was more appropriate. 

I was debating whether to add red tomato sauce to this one or something else. In the end, the red sauce won out. 

That's a lot of corn on that pizza, but let's give it a shot!

One sweet summer corn pizza!

The crust looks a little dark, but it was surprisingly light and crispy. The dough was just a little sweet and did have a corn flavor. The corn topping was certainly an interesting one. It was good. I like corn. But it's nothing I'd be craving again. 

And it's not the only pizza I'm making today either. There's also a meat pizza with these delicious pepperonis that curl up as they crisp. 

A combo pizza. 
And a BBQ Smoked Pork pizza with red onions, cilantro, and bbq sauce. 

Why so many pizzas? Because we're in Michigan visiting family! 

Someone likes their pepperoni pizza. 
The pizza was great!

  1. A lot of delicious-looking pizzas! I like that sweet corn pizza idea...lots of fresh corn from the cob, cob juice and the corn meal sound like a yummy combo. Ian's special pepperoni pizza...just the way he likes it, simple but with lots of pepperoni! Another great pizza night! EOM
