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.
2 poblano chiles
2 cups fresh corn kernels (about 4 ears)
1/2 cup chopped green onions
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 cup l% low-fat milk
2 large egg whites
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 (13.8-ounce) can refrigerated pizza crust dough
2 tablespoons fat-free sour cream
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
How to Make It
Place poblano chiles on a foil-lined baking sheet; broil 10 minutes or until blackened and charred, turning occasionally. Place in a heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag; seal. Let stand 10 minutes. Peel and discard skins, seeds, and stems. Chop peppers.
Lower oven temperature to 425°.
n?|?ILarge nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add corn, green onions, and garlic; sauté 2 minutes or until lightly browned. Stir in milk; cook over medium heat 2 minutes or until liquid almost evaporates. Cool slightly. Place egg whites, egg, salt, and black pepper in a bowl; stir with a whisk. Stir in poblano peppers, corn mixture, and cheese.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Unroll dough onto parchment paper; pat dough to form a 13 x 8-inch rectangle. Spread corn mixture over dough, leaving a 1-inch border.

This is excellent. My husband does not like spicy food so I soaked the seeded pablanos in water for an hour before broiling them. I made a whole wheat crust which was a little thick but that was my fault not the recipe's. I used vegan cheese (Dayia), vegan milk and egg substitute. It did not need sour cream but it would probably be good for those who eat it.
This is a winner and I will make it again and again.
I've made this a few times now...so good. I use a homemade white whole wheat crust, this most recent time fermented overnight and slipped onto a hot round stone with a pizza peel. The best ever! There's lots of room for experimentation; one could easily add bacon or try pepper-jack cheese. I don't get to make this often as my husband doesn't eat peppers or onions, but this recipe will remain permanently earmarked.
This is so delicious! I chose this recipe because I got corn on the cob, poblano chiles, garlic, and jalapenos in my CSA this week. This recipe was so great! Everything tastes so fresh. I added jalapeno to the pizza dough (which I made myself in my bread machine) and it gave it a nice kick. I cooked it closer to 20 minutes, not 12, and everything set perfectly. I'll definitely make this again.
This is a great vehicle for fresh corn and a nice break from tomato-based pizza. Almost like a strata but not as eggy (DH labeled it a casserole, "but a good one!"). Used homemade pizza dough to save money. Served with CL's spinach salad with cumin vinaigrette.
I love this pizza and have been making it since I saw it in the magazine about five years ago. It's really delicious, good for us, and cheap during the summer. I think all the produce ingredients (corn, poblanos, green onions, garlic and cilantro set me back $3 at the grocery store. I experiment with different homemade crusts, but store-bought is fine when I'm our if time. We love it topped with summer tomatoes. Yum!
Oh, and this holds a special place in my heart as the recipe I made when my then-boyfriend (now husband) told me he loves me for the first time. It's that good! ;)
