Roasted Fresh Corn, Poblano, and Cheddar Pizza


Quantity Ingredients
2 poblano chiles
Cooking spray
2 cups fresh corn kernels (about 4 ears)
1/2 cup chopped green onions
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 cup l% low-fat milk
2 large egg whites
1 large egg
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 (13.8-ounce) can refrigerated pizza crust dough
2 tbsp fat-free sour cream
2 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro


Preheat broiler.

Place poblano chiles on a foil-lined baking sheet; broil 10 minutes or until blackened and charred, turning occasionally. Place in a heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag; seal. Let stand 10 minutes. Peel and discard skins, seeds, and stems. Chop peppers.

Lower oven temperature to 425°.

Heat large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add corn, green onions, and garlic; sauté 2 minutes or until lightly browned. Stir in milk; cook over medium heat 2 minutes or until liquid almost evaporates. Cool slightly. Place egg whites, egg, salt, and black pepper in a bowl; stir with a whisk. Stir in poblano peppers, corn mixture, and cheese.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Unroll dough onto parchment paper; pat dough to form a 13 x 8-inch rectangle. Spread corn mixture over dough, leaving a 1-inch border. Fold 1 inch of dough over corn mixture. Bake at 425° for 12 minutes or until set. Serve with sour cream; sprinkle with cilantro.

Yield:  6 servings (serving size: 1 pizza piece, 1 teaspoon sour cream, and 1 teaspoon cilantro)
