Hey y’all! I’ve been so dang busy and I’ve missed you! I also know that I haven’t posted a pizza in at least 4 days and 12.6 hours, so I thought it was time.
Not to mention – why do people say that? I’m totally mentioning the fact that I am a lunatic crazy woman at the farmer’s market and had about a bazzillion heirloom cherry tomatoes, 47 ears of corn, 6 bushels of basil, and 23 pounds of pesto that needed to be consumed.
Can you blame me? I mean look at these tomatoes!
They’re friggin’ gorgeous! Stunning! Breathtaking!
Throw on some cheese…..
And more cheese….
And corn, man. Seriously, Jennifer? Getting me hooked on this pizza corn business? Sooooo not cool. Next time keep your dirty little secrets to yourself, k?
So I covered up the dirty little corn secret with some more pesto. I wish I could forget. But I can’t. Corn. On. Pizza. Yesssssss! It’s so good. Do it!
Sorry for the peer pressure. I’ve been corrupted.
Blame Jennifer. I’m glad we had this little talk.
Heirloom Cherry Pesto Pizza
- 1 pizza dough ball
- 1/4 cup plus 2-3 tablespoons prepared pesto divided
- 1 pint heirloom cherry tomatoes halved
- 1 8 ounce ball fresh mozzarella
- 4 ounces goat cheese
- 1 ear of fresh corn on the cob kernels removed
- 6-8 large basil leaves rolled and sliced into ribbons
Preheat oven to 425
Stretch dough over a pizza stone or baking sheet
Spread pesto over the dough
Add tomatoes, top with mozzarella, goat cheese, and corn
Drizzle remaining pesto over the top of pizza
Bake 15-17 minutes until crust is crispy and cheese is melted
Top with basil ribbons
Note: I used a store bought pizza dough and I didn’t love it, so use your favorite pizza dough recipe or store bought.
Note: I don’t have a go to pesto recipe – I just throw everything in the food processor and keep adding and tasting until it’s right to me
Note: Pesto can be overwhelming, so you can use as much or as little you want

Love the mozz + goat cheese! Such gorgeous colors on this pizza 🙂
I just can’t stay out of the cheese, man. But I think the tomatoes were so much better! Thanks Medha! Counting down those days to college? 🙂 So exciting!
Dannii @ Hungry Healthy Happy
I am SO jealous of all those tomatoes. It’s really difficult to get those kinds of tomatoes here in the UK.
Tomatoes and pesto are just perfect together.
Oh no! I had no idea it was difficult to get tomatoes in the UK. Can you grow some?
Gayle @ Pumpkin 'N Spice
You had me at pesto! This pizza looks amazing, Rachelle! I could totally go for a slice for breakfast right about now. This looks like the perfect dish to capture all of the fresh summer flavors. Love it!
Do it, Gayle! I won’t tell! Thanks!
David @ Spiced
Exactly how much is a bazillion tomatoes? Oh, the burning questions in life. But this pizza? Amazing! I’m totally adding corn on my next pizza…and goat cheese. Goat cheese is the best ever. 🙂
A bit more than a gazillion. Goat cheese is totally the best ever! Thanks David!

Linda @ Veganosity
Seriously, Rachelle, this looks unbelievable. I love all of those cherry tomatoes, so good! I’d smother it with some vegan mozzarella and be completely happy eating the whole pie. 🙂
I would totally take the whole pie for myself! The tomatoes were the best!
I’m totally down with goat cheese and a bazillion heirloom tomatoes on my pizza. Seriously, that’s a great idea. The corn is very startling. I have to adjust to you superb creativity, Rachelle. But you’re the pizza queen, so I trust you!

cali @ cali's cuisine
This pizza rocks! I have had corn on pizza in a restaurant, but not at home. The corn has been so yummy this summer I find myself purchasing only to wonder what I’m going to do with it once I get home. Now I will actually have a plant. Thanks for sharing!!!
Be careful, Cali – it’s very addictive!
