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.

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.
