sweet corn, tomato & basil pizza

I am always happy to add a good pizza to my recipe collection.

This one comes from Martha Stewart and it is completely delish.

I know what you are thinking: sweet corn on a pizza?  Just trust me - it's good.

I didn't do it completely a la Martha, as her recipe calls for grilling the pizza as well as letting your dough sit for four hours, and I wasn't up for the extra mess and time commitment these two elements would entail.  I am messy and impatient, clearly.

So I made a quick and simple pizza dough {the 'just add water' kind}, followed the package directions to make it 'thin and crispy,' and baked my pizza in the oven like the lazy mama that I am.  ;)

For you ambitious cooks, here is the full recipe in all it's Martha Stewart wonderfulness.  {Let me know how it comes out, as grilled pizza dough sounds SO good!}

For the rest of us, here is how I did it...

You will need:
-pizza crust of your choice {thin crust is great for this sweet/savory pizza.}
-1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
-2 ears of sweet corn
-2 whole peeled garlic cloves
-1/2 tsp. coarse salt
-2 tsp of olive oil, and more for drizzling
-2 Roma tomatoes, thinly sliced
-4-6 oz mozzarella cheese, shredded or sliced
-fresh basil leaves

To make:
1. Prepare the dough/crust of your choice.  Spread onto lightly oiled pizza pan or seasoned stone.
2. Puree in a food processor the corn, parmesan cheese, garlic cloves, olive oil, and salt until mixture is smooth with some small chunks.
3. Thinly slice 2 Roma tomatoes.
3. Drizzle a bit of olive oil on your pizza crust, then top with a thin layer of the corn mixture, the tomato slices, and sprinkle generously with shredded mozzarella cheese.
5. Bake 8-10 minutes at 425 degrees {or 350 if you are using flatbread} or until cheese is melty and crust is golden brown.
6. Top with fresh basil leaves and enjoy!



  1. Um, hello, that looks amazing. Do you know in England they put corn on their pizza all the time? And eggs. And tuna. Strange stuff.

  2. One word: YUMMY!!!!

    You have me pretty much drooling over my keyboard!!
