Summer Pizza | Corn, Pesto, Mozzarella, and Tomatoes

Summer Pizza | Corn, Pesto, Mozzarella, and Tomatoes

  • cherry tomatoes or 3 small plum tomatoes
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • pizza crust (or you can use a Boboli)
  • 1/3 cup pesto
  • 1/2 cup fresh corn kernels
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 8 ounces fresh mozzarella
  • 3 Tablespoons fresh basil leaves

Instructions:

  1. Slice the tomatoes and place on a paper towel. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and let stand for 20 minutes while you prepare the remaining ingredients.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together the corn, sugar, and Parmesan cheese.
  3. Roll out the pizza dough on a floured-with-cornmeal-pizza-pan and spread the pesto all over the top.
  4. Cover the pesto with the corn mixture, mozzarella cheese, and tomatoes.
  5. Bake in a preheated 450 degree oven (the longer that it preheats the better, I try for at least one hour) for about 15 minutes. The cheese will be melted and the crust golden brown. Sprinkle with torn basil leaves.
