- 1 pizza dough large enough for four people (see note)
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- ¾ cup basil pesto
- 4 ounces mozzarella cheese, grated or thinly sliced (preferably fresh)
- 2 cups corn kernels (slice these fresh off the cobs for the best flavor)
- 20 cherry tomatoes, halved
- ½ cup red onion, diced
- 4 ounces goat cheese
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. If using a pizza stone, place it in the oven as it heats up.
Stretch the pizza dough into rounds and drizzle with olive oil.
Top the pizza with pesto, mozzarella cheese, corn, tomatoes, and red onion. Crumble the goat cheese over the top.
Bake until the mozzarella is bubbly and the crust is golden brown, 10 to 14 minutes. Slice and serve.
Pizza Dough - I like this homemade pizza dough or use store-bought dough. (Trader Joe's and Whole Foods both have great pre-made pizza dough.)
