I have been pinning lots of grilled pizza recipes, but honestly I’ve never grilled a pizza before. Then I stumbled upon a recipe for grilled corn pizza and decided to alter it a little to suit my taste buds. The result is a light summery flavored pizza you can make in a jiffy.


If you’re like me, you might want to start by cleaning your grill. But, if you’re fine with a little burger grease on the bottom of your pizza, go ahead and get grilling!

Grilled Corn Pesto Pizza


1. Pre-heat your grill on medium high.

2. Soak corn inside the husks for 10-15 minutes in your sink.

3. Place the corn (still inside the husks) on the grill for 10 minutes to steam cook (rotating halfway through.) The last few minutes, peel the husks back and lay them on the grill to char the exterior of the corn. Rotate the corn and sprinkle salt and pepper to your taste.

4. Place the pizza crust with the top facing down on the grill for a few minutes to toast it. Remove the crust and set it on a plate (or pizza paddle.)

5. Spread pesto onto the pizza crust.

6. Cut corn off the cob. Mix corn and parmesan in a bowl.

7. Spread the corn mixture on top of the pesto-covered crust.

8. Add sliced tomatoes and fresh mozzarella slices onto the the pizza.

9. Put the pizza on the grill and close the lid. Grill the pizza until the cheese starts to melt (check frequently and move it away from the heat if the crust starts to burn.)

10. At the last minute add the sliced basil on top of the pizza. Remove the pizza before the basil browns.

    We clean our grill every few times we use it. Saw some young men at a street fair on Saturday. Two guys and a Grill. They will come to clean your grill.

    I already get your emails. I need these products because there is no Lowe’s within 50 miles of us.

    My favorite thing on the grill is plain old burgers and hotdogs – boring I know but delicious.

    I clean the grill with a grill brush everytime we use it but am afraid it has never had a “deep” cleaning and is in need of one!

    Let’s see; I know I cleaned a couple years ago, I think. That pizza looks good enough to enourage me to clean it, especially if I had the cleaning items!

    Haven’t cleaned the grill since we got it over 2 1/2 years ago and we grill all year long!

    I usually scrape the grates but as for as a good cleaning, I could not tell the last time. My grill probably needs it. The grilled pizza sounds great going to try it.

    The pizza does sound wonderful! I will try it soon! I do grill most of my meats on the grill. I love the fact that there is less mess in the kitchen! And they just taste better!
