I never would have thought about putting corn on a pizza, but now I can't think about anything but. The corn are juicy bursts of summer and combine with the cheese to make a truly great pie. Want to up the ante? Make the pizza on the grill! —TheFritschKitchen

    How do you think this recipe would go with pizza crust made out of cauliflower?
