There’s an independent pizza joint down the street from us that serves up really good whole wheat crust and super fresh toppings. Non-traditional type pizza, some with an unusual mix of ingredients. One of my favorites is called “The Old Lady.” How appropriate. 

It has all kinds of crazy stuff going on, like potatoes, green bell peppers, artichokes, olives, corn, and feta. It doesn’t sound like it would all work together, but somehow it does. However, this wouldn’t fly if I made it at home – Paul doesn’t care for olives, the kids would groan over the potato, and the bell peppers would get picked off. So, I sort of created my own “Old Lady” pizza. It’s wonderful.

You don’t have to grill your corn first, but I highly recommend it. That semi-charred sweet flavor adds another level here. OXO’s new Corn Stripper makes removing the kernels off the cob an absolute cinch – yet another brilliant OXO tool that you must get your hands on.

Watch the video to see how it works…

And here’s how you can try to win one…

Garden Pizza with Grilled Corn, Feta, and Balsamic
Serves 8 slices
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes

• 1 Boboli thin crust pizza
• 1/4 cup pesto
• 1/2 (14 ounce) can artichoke hearts, drained and roughly chopped
• 1 medium tomato, diced
• 1/2 cup grilled corn kernels (from one ear)
• 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
• 4 large basil leaves, chiffonade
• 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Spread pesto evenly over the pizza crust. Scatter the artichokes, tomato, and corn on top, then the feta cheese. Place in the oven and bake for 10 minutes.

While the pizza is cooking, simmer the balsamic until it is reduced by half (about 10 minutes.)

Remove pizza from oven, sprinkle the basil on top and drizzle the balsamic.

Love OXO! Try putting the pizza on the grill next time ! Works great


Marina July 18, 2012 at 2:49 pm

What a great and easy to use toll to strip the corn. Fantastic idea and best, it collects in a container so there is no corns everywhere. I love it!


Steph J July 18, 2012 at 2:32 pm

OXO products ROCK my kitchen! Love’em!


Lisa S. July 18, 2012 at 2:16 pm

Oh pick me! pick me! I love OXO. Best products around!


Angela Cianfaglione July 18, 2012 at 1:50 pm

I could really use this product.


Kate D. July 18, 2012 at 1:42 pm

This looks so easy to use. I love OXO products.


Carli July 18, 2012 at 1:36 pm

This is awesome, makes it look SO SO easy! :-)

I haven’t tried the OXO corn stripper but you know my love for all things OXO! And this pizza looks soooo delish!


Joanne July 17, 2012 at 8:21 pm

Also, corn STRIPPER. Am I the only other person who finds that amusing?


Joanne July 17, 2012 at 8:20 pm

Well it certainly sounds like I would like that pizza! Old Lady, hah. I refuse to be labeled by how I like my pizza topped!


Lynda July 17, 2012 at 4:48 pm

I’m off and running to find the corn stripper! Well, maybe I’ll wait to see if I happen to win one first!


Leslie July 17, 2012 at 1:04 pm

I love, love, love this gadget!!!!!


JoAnn July 17, 2012 at 12:49 pm

Love OXO and love corn! Thanks! :)

I’m a fan on FB.


melissa@IWasBornToCook July 17, 2012 at 12:45 pm

The pizza looks great! Love this gadget.


Doreen July 17, 2012 at 12:30 pm

I love the OXO products that I have purchased! This one would be gret to add to the mix. Thanks


Tracy July 17, 2012 at 11:46 am

Love Oxo. And this gadget would solve the kernels-everywhere-but-in-the-bowl problem. Thanks for the giveaway.


Mom July 17, 2012 at 10:32 am

This pizza looks interesting but would use as a snack rather than a dinner. The new OXO corn stripper
looks even better than their previous version.


Jenna July 17, 2012 at 8:53 am

Heh heh–I love that it’s called “The Old Lady.” It sounds right up my alley! =)


Jay July 17, 2012 at 8:39 am

Amy, After watching your Dad strip corn off the cob with a very sharp knife (flash to images of the Julia Child skit from SNL…”Oh Look, I’ve cut the dickens out of my finger.”), I’m thinking he must be tops on the list for the giveaway. If not, then certainly for Hanukka.


Jen July 17, 2012 at 9:02 am

Funny, but very true. I would like one, too! Hint…hint….. :o)


Cherie Cabral July 17, 2012 at 8:34 am

Pizza looks fabulous!!! The OXO corn stripper looks amazing as well!


Andrea July 17, 2012 at 8:19 am

Amy, love these videos you’ve been doing! That tool would be really great to have stashed in my kitchen. Milo likes the cob part, but I like all the stuff you can do with it once it’s off the cob.


Lisa@The Cutting Edge of Ordinary July 17, 2012 at 8:19 am

Stripper – I want one. I can already imagine the look on John’s face if I told him a stripper was coming the mail!

I’m in a strange mood..forgive me, lol.


kari July 17, 2012 at 8:15 am

I would love to have a corn stripper. Living in Iowa, a BIG corn state, it would sure come in handy!!!

I just liked your facebook fan page via Katie A-J.

This recipe sounds amazing… and the corn stripper giveaway! I need this in my life! THanks for hosting!


Ray Mullins July 17, 2012 at 6:33 am

Seriously, another “why didn’t I think of that?” tool. I hate using our corn tool, because it gets so messy. If I don’t win one (tempting fate again), I’ll go buy one.

Grilled corn – yum!


Ari July 17, 2012 at 6:24 am

Oh my goodness, that would be life changing! I can’t get enough fresh corn in the summer, but I constantly find myself picking kernels up off the floor.
