Corn Zucchini Lime Pizza

Corn Zucchini Lime Pizza

For a good year, Casey worked close to the amazing/prolific Arizmendi Bakery. Not only are their pastries, muffins & cookies TO DIE FOR, they make the most fabulous/unconventional pizza with the craziest, most exotic toppings; it’s fancy pizza! We created a tradition where every other Thursday, he’d call me and tell me what the pizza of the day was and nine times out of ten, he’d bring one home. I’d fire up the oven after hanging up and eagerly anticipated heating up the pizza and slicing into it.

Ingredients

  • For a good year, Casey worked close to the amazing/prolific Arizmendi Bakery. Not only are their pastries, muffins & cookies TO DIE FOR, they make the most fabulous/unconventional pizza with the craziest, most exotic toppings; it’s fancy pizza! We created a tradition where every other Thursday, he’d call me and tell me what the pizza of the day was and nine times out of ten, he’d bring one home. I’d fire up the oven after hanging up and eagerly anticipated heating up the pizza and slicing into it.
  • One of the best pizzas he came home with was a wonderful corn, feta, lime & cilantro pizza that had slices of jalapeno scattered throughout. It tasted just like summer. Casey changed jobs, and sadly Arizmendi pizza has been out of our rotation. That hasn’t prevented me from thinking about their pizza constantly. Before bed the other night, this pizza popped into my head and I seriously lost sleep over it. I woke up the next morning plagued with the NEED to make it. I fulfilled that need and if given the chance, I would have eaten the entire pizza myself. Thank heavens for husbands who come home early from work and neighbors who will try anything I make.
  • The corn is sweet and crunchy, the feta is salty and slightly creamy, the cilantro adds a nice herbal greenness to the pizza and the slices of jalapeno add great heat. Squeeze lime on top and all of the flavors step up a notch! This pizza is truly addictive, earth shattering and seriously the best way to exploit fresh corn right now. I can honestly say this is a pizza worth losing sleep over.
  • And we’re off!
  • It all starts off with you making dough. You’ll find a step by step recipe here.
  • OK now that your dough is done, get your ingredients together. It’s time to SLICE!
  • With a mandoline or a sharp knife, slice up onions, jalapenos, zucchini & take the corn off the cob.
  • Grab a ball of pizza dough and spread it out on an oiled baking sheet.
