Roasted Corn and Smoked Mozzarella Pizza

I remembered that I had some fresh corn and decided to stop by the local pizza shop in my neighborhood to pick up some dough on my way home. Corn on pizza is amazing. If you haven’t tried it before, I really recommend it! It’s sweet and gives a nice texture to the pizza. I like to add something a little salty with it, like prosciutto, to balance it out. Pizza at home never disappoints me, it’s always a good idea.

Pizza dough, store bought or homemade
Smoked mozzarella cheese, sliced
Fresh corn, cut off the cob
3 slices prosciutto
1/2 shallot
Olive oil
Salt and pepper

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Start by cutting the corn off the cob and chopping the shallot. Add both to a pan with some olive oil and cook over medium heat until the corn starts getting a tiny bit browned. Remove from heat and set aside.

Flour your surface and rolling pin, and roll out the dough. Make sure to keep adding flour as you roll. Brush the dough with a little olive oil, then salt and pepper to taste. Next add the smoked mozzarella, corn, and prosciutto. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Cook for 15 minutes or until cheese is bubbling and the crust is golden.
