Corn Pizza

Since I love pizza and corn I decided to combine the two and make Corn Pizza! For Valentines I am going to make a heart-shaped Corn Pizza and eat it while day dreaming about Chad Greenway. I bet Chad would like my Corn Pizza and I bet Martha Stewart would like it too. One of my friends came over to help me make this delicious creation. I’m sure you are thinking I’m crazy for putting corn on pizza but don’t knock it until you try it. . . it’s actually very good!

Prep time: 40 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes
Ready in: 1 hour

Pizza Ingredients:
1 can Hunts tomato sauce (I prefer Roasted Garlic flavor)
1 package Kraft pizza cheese
(You may add any combination of ingredients…I added pineapple, red onions and banana peppers)

Crust ingredients: (cut in half – this recipe makes dough for two pizzas)
2 1/2 to 3 cups all purpose flour
1 tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. slat
1 package regular or quick active dry yeast (2 1/4 tsp)
3 tbsp. olive or vegetable oil
1 cup very warm water

In large bowl, mix 1 cup of the flour, the sugar, salt and yeast.

Add oil and warm water. Beat with electric mixer on medium speed for 3 minutes. Stir in enough remaining flour until dough is soft and leaves sides of bowl. Use bread hook if you have a KitchenAid mixer and knead bread with hook on medium speed for 3-4 minutes. If you don’t have a KitchenAid, place dough on a lightly floured surface.

Knead 5 to 8 minutes or until dough is smooth and springy. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and let rest 30 minutes.

Preheat your oven to 385 degrees.

Roll out dough with rolling pin and place on pizza pan. Spread the tomato sauce on pizza and top with a layer of pepperoni.

Scatter corn on top of pepperoni. (Feel free to add pineapple, banana peppers and red onions like I did or any other ingredient you like).

Lastly, cover pizza with cheese.

Bake for 18-20 minutes or…

until cheese and bottom of crust is golden brown.

Cut into eight pieces and enjoy!
