Sweet Corn and Bacon Pizza with Arugula

Sweet Corn and Bacon Pizza with Arugula


For the Pizza
1 pound pizza dough
4 slices bacon cut into 1/2 inch slices and fried until crispy
1 ear sweet corn peeled and cut from the cob
1 cup mozarella cheese, shredded
1/3 cup ricotta cheese
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh parsley, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, crushed
1/2 teaspoon Papa Joe's Salt or combination of salt and pepper
For the Arugula
1 cup baby arugula
1/2 tablespoon lemon juice, freshly squeezed
1 pinch Papa Joe's Salt or combination of salt and pepper
2 tablespoons balsamic glaze


  1. Remove pizza dough from the refrigerator about an hour before you start making the pizza. While the dough is warming and rising, you'll prep the rest of your toppings.

For the Toppings

  1. Cut the bacon in to 1/2 in strips and fry over medium heat in your favorite frying pan until crispy.
  2. Peel and wash your sweet corn. Cut the corn from the cob and reserve until ready to make the pizza.
  3. In a small mixing bowl, combine the olive oil, garlic, parsley and Papa Joe's Salt.
  4. Toss the arugula with the juice from 1/2 of a lemon and a sprinkle of Papa Joe's Salt or combination of salt and pepper.

To Make the Pizza

  1. Once the dough has risen nicely, stretch the dough to make a circle, lay it on a parchment lined sheet pan and use your hands to make a large circle of pizza dough.
  2. Once your dough is in a nice circle, layer on the olive oil and garlic mixture, the bacon, sweet corn and cheeses.
  3. Bake pizza at 450° for 15 minutes or until golden brown on the edges and the cheese is bubbly and golden brown too.
  4. Remove the pizza from the oven and top with the dressed arugula. Cut into 6-8 slices, drizzle with balsamic glaze and serve immediately.
