Allowing the dough to come to room temperature will ease the rolling-out process.
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
2 cups thinly sliced onion
1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
2 cups thinly sliced red bell pepper
5 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1 cup fresh corn kernels (about 2 ears)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 (16-ounce) refrigerated fresh pizza crust dough
5 ounces thinly sliced fresh mozzarella cheese
1/3 cup (1 1/2 ounces) grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1/3 cup fresh basil leaves
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 425°. Position an oven rack in the next to lowest setting. Place a 16-inch pizza pan on the rack.
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add olive oil to pan, and swirl to coat. Add 2 cups onion and thyme to pan; cook for 3 minutes or until the onion is tender, stirring occasionally. Add bell pepper and garlic to pan; cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add corn, salt, and black pepper to pan; cook for 1 minute or until thoroughly heated.
Roll dough into a 16-inch circle on a lightly floured surface. Remove pan from oven. Coat the pan with cooking spray. Place dough on pan. Arrange mozzarella slices evenly over dough. Spread the corn mixture evenly over cheese, and top with Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese. Bake at 425° for 23 minutes. Arrange tomatoes evenly over pizza; bake an additional 5 minutes or until crust is browned. Remove from oven; sprinkle with basil. Cut into 6 slices.
This was fabulous. My husband doesn't call it dinner if it doesn't have some sort of meat in it so I added a little bit of prosciutto. It was fantastic! Hubby said the best pizza he has ever eaten. I agree.
This recipe is delicious! It looked so good in the July 2011 magazine that I had to go out and buy a pizza stone and try it. This pizza has a many layers of flavor is a great recipe for any day of the week. I am going to make it again next week for "Girls Night". I added a light sprinkle of chicken italian sausage, but it would be fantastic with or without it. Try this recipe.
