White Zucchini Corn Pizza - Use up all your lingering zucchini in the most amazing white pizza! With corn kernels, dollops of ricotta and mozzarella cheese!

Okay, guys.

Real talk here.

This may be classified as a summer pizza.

But.

I’m not waiting 3 seasons for this pizza.

I’m just not.

Because this white pizza is too good to wait on.

The zucchini is perfectly crisp-tender, lightly seasoned with Italian seasoning (but you can use your own blend of spices/herbs here).

Plus, dollops of ricotta and fresh mozzarella slices pairs perfectly with these toppings.

Also.

I’d much rather have a white pizza than a red.

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter

  1. This was amazingly good. I used a packaged pizza crust and shredded mozzarella along with the ricotta and fresh mozzarella, farm fresh frozen corn, and cilantro on top. So delicious! Prep 10 minutes and 15 to cook. Everyone raved including the kids.

  2. I like your blog and it is so wonderful. I am a writer and newcomer in my career. For the research work, I have to read so much blog. I hope that your blog will really enhance my career. Thank you so much for sharing me. Visit: https://www.triumphessays.com/

  3. Wow, I can’t wait to try this recipe. Recipes that should be tried for the daytime certainly.

  4. My DD16 said we should try this as tonight’s dinner. It did not sound appetizing to me in the least. However, I am up for trying new things, especially if it gets me help in the kitchen. This turned out to be fantastic!! To simplify for us and cut down on the “bread” factor and bake time, we made mini pizzas using pita bread rounds. The blend of vegetables with ricotta and seasoning worked out perfectly. We love cilantro here in central Florida, so that had to go on top, but this would have been great without it. Thanks for another one for the “keep” file!

  5. Omg…  I have something similar to this at a restaurant. It was so amazing, very unique but amazing. I can’t wait to try this recipe thank you ! 

  6. Would a packaged pizza crust work? Like Boli? etc..
