This easy homemade pizza gets a ton of flavor from crispy bacon, fresh summer corn and tomatoes, and shredded gruyere cheese.
PIZZA! I love it. And THIS pizza? It’s a gamechanger.
In fact, I loved this pizza so much that I almost didn’t share any with Kyle. But then I DID share, and we were both in full-on pizza heaven. HOW have I never put sweet corn on a pizza before? It’s definitely the best idea I’ve had in a long, long time.
The gruyere on this pizza is really what takes it all over the top, though. It’s such a distinct flavor but doesn’t overpower the amazing produce. The bacon gives the pizza just the right amount of smokiness (although you can leave it off to make the pizza vegetarian!)
This is also the perfect way to use up any end-of-summer produce you have left as the weather cools off (don’t use it ALL up, though, because I have one last corn and tomato recipe comin’ atcha this week! Are you sick of this combo yet? No? Good, because you’re not allowed to be). Maybe after my corn and tomatoes are all the way gone I’ll feel a little better about fall. Maybe I’ll even be in the mood for a pumpkin recipe or two. But just maybe.
