Roasted Fresh Corn, Poblano, and Cheddar Pizza

Roasted Fresh Corn, Poblano, and Cheddar Pizza Recipe
Becky Luigart-Stayner
Refrigerated dough tends to shrink when removed from the can. Let the dough rest a few minutes before you start to work with it so it will be more pliable.


6 servings (serving size: 1 pizza piece, 1 teaspoon sour cream, and 1 teaspoon cilantro)
