With the end of summer a stone’s throw away, we have to make the most of the crops still in season. One of our favorites is still around: corn.

This recipes combines the vegetable that everyone loves with the dish that everyone loves – and it’s fun to make! Whether you’re cooking for one, two, or a whole family, there is no dish more fun to make from scratch than pizza. Here’s a great recipe for fresh corn and goat cheese pizza:

Ingredients:

1 prepared pizza crust

½ cup of Creme Fresh

1 tsp paprika

1 charred and chopped pepper (poblano, jalapeno, habanero – it’s up to you!)

1 shallot, thinly sliced

1 ear of corn, kernels removed

1 cup of crumbled goat cheese

1 pack of baby arugula (optional)

1 tsp olive oil

½ tsp ground salt

1 tsp ground black pepper

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 500F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Roll out your pizza crust (make sure it’s fully thawed if you bought a frozen crust) until you’ve reached your desired thickness. Carefully move the crust to the parchment lined baking sheet.
  3. Spread the creme fresh evenly across the pizza – this will serve as your white sauce.
  4. Sprinkle the paprika over the creme fresh, then top with the shallots, chopped pepper, corn, goat cheese, salt and pepper.
  5. Put your pizza in the oven for 12-15 minutes – until the top just begins to brown and bubble. Switch your oven on broil and cook the pizza for one more minute. Watch carefully to make sure it doesn’t burn!
  6. Take the pizza out of the oven and top with the arugula and some fresh lemon juice. Slice it how you like and serve hot!
