Ingredients
Pizza:
  • 1 avocado sliced
  • 1 ear of corn roasted
  • 1/2 red onion sliced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil chopped
  • 2 ounces roasted red peppers sliced
  • Homemade pizza sauce or favorite processed
  • 3/4 cup mozzarella cheese
Pizza Crust:
  • cups warm water
  • 2 envelopes active dry yeast
  • 3 tablespoons molasses
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil plus more for brushing
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 4 cups flour plus more for dusting
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. In a food processor with a dough attachment add the yeast, molasses, and water. Let the mixture rest for 5 minutes to let the yeast bubble.
  3. Add the olive oil and salt and blend for 30 seconds. Slowly begin to add flour, about 1/2 cup at a time, mixing for 2 minutes between additions.
  4. Allow the mixture to knead in the food processor for 10 minutes, sprinkling with flour if needed to keep the dough from sticking, until elastic and smooth.
  5. Remove the dough from the bowl and let rest under a warm, moist towel for 15 minutes.
  6. Roll the dough into a ½-inch thick circle, dusting the pizza dough with flour as needed. Poke holes in the pizza dough with a fork to prevent bubbles. Bake for 5 minutes. Remove from the oven.
  7. Spread pizza sauce over the crust and sprinkle with 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese. Layer it with roasted corn, red onions, avocado slices, fresh basil, and roasted red peppers. Top with 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese.
  8. Bake for 13 – 15 minutes or until crust is golden brown.
