Thyme, Sweet Corn, & Sausage Pizza

This thyme, sweet corn and sausage pizza is hearty while still letting you get in your daily vegetables in a very tasty manner. This pizza is relatively easy and quick to prepare, even for beginners, and it tastes as good as one from a restaurant like Sunrise Pizza & Steak House.

Shopping List

  • 1 shallot
  • 2 ears of corn
  • 1 bell pepper
  • 1 tomato
  • thyme
  • sausage
  • mozzarella cheese
  • 1 pizza crust
  • salt and pepper

Oven

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit before you start getting everything ready.

Crust

Take the crust out of the package and let it sit on your kitchen counter for about ten minutes. If the crust has been kept in the fridge, this will allow it to warm up to room temperature and will make it easier to handle.

Put down some parchment paper and spread a little flour on top. The dough will not stick to the parchment paper, and it will make it easier to transfer to the cookie sheet or pizza stone you plan on baking with.

Use a rolling pin or other cylinder shaped object to roll out the pizza into any shape you like. Just make sure the pizza crust is only about 1/8 of an inch thick.

Then, take a fork and poke a few holes in the crust. This will prevent bubbles from forming in your crust. Then, brush some olive oil over the crust. The olive oil will serve as the sauce for this pizza.

Veggies Prep

Wash all the veggies in the sink before you work with them to wash away any dirt and germs.

Slice up the shallot into long, thin pieces and then do the same with the bell pepper. You can use red, green, yellow or orange bell peppers. Whatever type you have on-hand and prefer to use. 

Then, remove all the kernels from the corn. One of the easiest ways to remove the kernels from the corn is to hold the cob steady, and use a knife to make downwards strokes to remove the corn kernels.

Next, take the fresh tomato and cut big, juice slices. If you can't find a really juice, fresh tomato, you can leave it out and still make a great pizza.

Sausage

If you have some leftover sausage from breakfast or another meal, you can just cook it with the veggies.

If you don't have any leftover sausage, be sure to cook it up while you are cooking the veggies.

Veggies Cooking

Heat up some olive oil inside of a medium sized skilled over medium heat. Then, throw in the shallots and let them cook by themselves for three to four minutes. They should start to get soft and just a little bit brown.

Once the shallots start to turn brown, thrown in the corn and bell peppers. If you are using left over, already-cooked sausage, throw it in now. Cook everything together for about three minutes, and then remove the skillet from the heat.

Add a little salt and pepper, as well as some fresh thyme to the mixture.

Assembly

Take a ½ cup of mozzarella cheese and spread it evenly on top of the crust. Then spread the cooked veggie mixture on top of the crust. Next, place the juicy slices of tomato strategically around the pizza. Finally, sprinkle another ½ cup of the mozzarella cheese on top of the pizza.

Put the pizza in the oven, and bake it until the crust turns a gold brown. This should take about 12 minutes. Serve and enjoy this summer fresh, veggie sausage pizza.
