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!

  • 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


  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  • 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.
  • 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.

    1. The avocado pizza is so good, just thought about it myself, when googled I found it exists 🙂
      Thank you so much it was great healthy dinner.

  1. I’ve been looking for new vegetarian pizza ideas for our weekly Friday pizza night. This is definitely one to try!

  2. Homemade pizza night is where it’s at! We’re always looking for new flavors, and avocado can do no wrong. Yum!

  3. I love putting corn on my pizza and then topping with fresh avocado and Tobasco! It makes for one awesome pizza! Gorgeous photos!

  4. 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!

  5. I never thought to put avocado on a pizza! This sounds really nice and refreshing – not too heavy. Can’t wait to try it!

  6. I love going to your site, because so many of them have avocado, and I LOVE avocado! This pizza looks to die for!

  7. Oh, I just know that I will love this! Love, as in eat-the-entire-pizza type of love 😉

  8. 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!

  9. 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!

  10. 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.

  11. Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any points for beginner blog writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.
