Recipe Box, Queso Pizza with Bacon and Corn

I have been on a flatbread, open face, tartine, pizza kind of kick lately…

Unexpected combinations piled high on a crust


Great straight from the oven or reheated the next day, a flatbread, open face, tartine, pizza type dish is a great way to get your veggies, protein, and carbs all in one delicious bite


I started out by baking my crust~my current favorite is Pillsbury thin crust pizza crust refrigerated dough~

Smearing it with a head of roasted garlic and then spreading with a thin layer of Queso cheese sauce or dip


Then I topped it with cooked fresh corn {white and yellow} cut from the cob and green onions


and bacon, roasted in the oven and cut into 1 inch pieces


So simple, but different enough to be exciting!

It’s kinda fun if you can cut the corn so it stays together in larger pieces

This Queso pizza would be outstanding with sausage or chorizo too~

    That looks really good, Jenna!
    I have a biscuit recipe (freezer biscuits) that my aunt gave to me years ago. I like to grab one from the freezer, let it thaw, press it flat and make a quick little personal sized pizza. I’ll have to try one with this sauce and the toppings that you’ve shared.

    This looks delicious Jenna. I think this would be great to make for lunch when friends come over. I doubt there would be any leftovers………….
    Stay cool, we are in for another few days of extreme heat!

    • Thanks Emily, I will be making this again soon, it was so good! As for the heat, I have to leave the coast and go back to B’ham in a few days and not excited about it!

    We would love this combination on our pizza Jenna! They’re nothing that says summer like fresh corn on or off the cob. Everything is better with bacon too 🙂
