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.

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
