Pizza experiment - suggestions?
A friend recently told me about corn on pizza. I'm trying to use ingredients below, but I'm wondering what kind of sauces / cheeses would pair well?
On the pizza: (might sound weird but sort of a bet)
I saw one recipe for corn and bacon + chipotle cream fraiche
Another option may be southwestern flavor with ranchero sauce and jack cheese?
Thoughts? Ideas? Suggestions?
Sounds like a very fun pizza. An egg sunny side up is very common on pizzas in Europe. Apparently cracked on at the end or at the last minute, to keep the yolk a bit runny.
I do share what I take to be your own sense that the usual American red-sauce would not be optimal there, and that something more cream or dairy-based, or a white sauce, would work better. How about a cheddar cheese sauce? Or a barbecue sauce?
Vircabutar's suggestions are great.
I think an olive oil base and a smattering of crushed garlic would be awesome. Make it a summer's bounty pizza with zucchini, tomatoes, and asparagus to go with the corn. I think fresh mozzarella would give you the most 'pizza-like' feel.
I would definitely avoid the tomato based sauce. I'm thinking something toward the cornbread end. Bacon/egg/sour cream/chedddar all go nicely in cornbread. Maybe some onion too?
