It’s Friday and that means it’s pizza night at the Lichty house! Tonight we are making a few kinds of pizza pies-Spinach Artichoke Pesto Pizza, BBQ Chicken Deluxe Pizza, and this Sweet Corn and Avocado Pizza. It’s a pizza party and you are all invited!

I love trying new pizza recipes and toppings. This pizza was inspired by my favorite Charred Corn & Avocado Quinoa Salad. I used all of the same flavors and ingredients to create a killer pizza!

We topped our favorite pizza dough with Pepper Jack cheese, charred corn, roasted poblano pepper, and cilantro. We cooked the pizza until the cheese was melted and the crust was golden brown. We added avocado slices, cotija cheese, and a squeeze of fresh lime juice. Sounds good, huh? I bet your mouth is watering too!

We also like to add a few drops of Tabasco hot sauce to our pizza slices. Josh prefers the Original Red Tabasco Sauce and I like Tabasco’s Green Jalapeño Pepper Sauce. You know I love everything green:) The Tabasco adds the perfect kick and flavor! This pizza will take your tastebuds on a wild ride. It’s all kinds of awesome!

Kick off your weekend with a Charred Corn and Avocado Pizza.  This pizza is also perfect for game day! Football season is in full swing and you can’t go wrong with a slice of Charred Corn and Avocado Pizza while you cheer on your favorite team!

Charred Corn and Avocado Pizza

Yield: 1 large pizza

Cook Time: 18-20 minutes

Pizza with Pepper Jack cheese, charred corn, poblano peppers, cilantro, avocado, cotija cheese, and fresh lime juice. This unique pizza is full of flavor and perfect for any pizza party!


1-16 ounce pizza dough (homemade or store-bought)
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cups shredded Pepper Jack cheese
1 small ear grilled sweet corn, kernels removed from cob
1 roasted poblano peppers, diced
1/3 cup chopped cilantro
2 avocados, sliced, pit and skin removed
1/3 cup cotija cheese
Squeeze of fresh lime juice
Tabasco Sauce, for serving


1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

2. Place the pizza dough on a lightly floured surface. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough out into a circle. Carefully move the pizza dough to a pizza pan or pizza stone. Spread the pizza evenly with olive oil. Top cheese, corn kernels, peppers, and cilantro.

3. Place the pizza in the hot oven and bake for 18-20 minutes or until pizza crust is golden and cheese is melted. Remove the pizza from the oven and top with avocado slices and cotija cheese. Squeeze fresh lime juice over the pizza. Cut into slices and serve with Tabasco sauce, if desired.

Note: If we don't have time to make homemade pizza dough we like to use Trader Joe's or Whole Foods refrigerated pizza dough. To char the corn and roast the poblano pepper, place the corn and poblano pepper on a hot grill or over a gas flame. Cook until they are black and charred. Remove the black skin on the peppers, and dice. Cotija cheese is a Mexican cheese and you can find it at most markets. If you can't find it, feta is a good substitution.

    Maria, I think you are an avocado queen and addict.:) Whenever I think of TP&TP, I think of chickpeas and avocado.:) Looks scrumptious and pillowy comfort food!

    I’m definitely in a pizza kind of mood after seeing this! I’ve never seen avocado on a pizza before though…which seems like a shame!

  34. JustOneMoreBite — September 7, 2013 @ 1:56 pm

    This pizza looks delicious! I would have to add tomatoes on top as well, since one of my favorite food combinations is tomatoes and avocados!

  35. aida mollenkamp — September 7, 2013 @ 3:40 pm

    Oh, my, this sounds fabulous, Maria!

  36. Marian (Sweetopia) — September 8, 2013 @ 5:00 pm

    How creative, Maria! Sounds and looks so good!

  37. Maegan @ The BakerMama — September 9, 2013 @ 12:22 am

    I think I could eat this whole pizza myself! It looks so fresh and flavorful!

  38. Becs @ Lay the table — September 11, 2013 @ 7:54 am

    This sounds amazing. We have homemade pizza every Friday and I’m always trying to find new topping ideas, rather than just your normal tomato based options.

  39. Des — September 12, 2013 @ 1:23 am

    Gorgeous Maria, just gorgeous!

  40. Amelia @ Eating Made Easy — September 12, 2013 @ 1:20 pm
