Corn and Tomatillo Pizza

Enjoy fresh-from-the-oven pizza — whether using a store-bought crust or your own homemade dough. For smaller or larger pizzas, simply adjust the amounts of sauce, cheese, and time. If you're using frozen dough, let it thaw overnight in the fridge and then come to room temperature before shaping.

I am kind of famous for this pizza — with grown-ups, at least, although kids will happily eat it on account of the corn, and also of its being, you know, pizza. I often make it in the heart of the summer with fresh tomatillos and corn sliced off the cob — but canned and frozen work just fine too.

Hands-On Time: 20 minutes
Ready In: 45 minutes

  1. Follow the steps for our basic Homemade Pizza, sprinkling corn over sauce before adding cheese. Bake as directed.
