Somehow we let the month of June slip by us without doing a Pizza Lab. We’re still not entirely sure what happened, but it did; we let you and ourselves down. So we definitely couldn’t let another month go by. We were going to stay on top of things and get it done early in the month! We had ideas of doing a red, white, and blue pizza for the 4th of July. Yet somehow we ended up just getting around to doing Pizza Lab last week. Where does the time keep going? We decided too much time had passed since the 4th of July for red, white, and blue pizza to be relevant, so we opted instead for a summery pizza.
There are many classic summer-time foods. One such food is corn on the cob. Sure you can get frozen or canned corn year round, but good corn for eating off the cob is only available from around the 4th of July until Columbus Day. Perhaps these dates are shifted a little in other parts of the country, but here on Long Island at least, that’s the time to hit up the farm stands and get yourself some local corn. Erik is currently in the throes of his annual grilled corn obsession, so it’s no surprise we ended up featuring it on a pizza. It took a lot of brainstorming to figure out what else to put on the pizza other than corn though.
