We have been grubbing on fresh corn this summer, and I do not remember it being this juicy and sweet in previous summers. Every kernel is packed with this sweetness that pops in your mouth with each bite. Kind of heavenly in a food sort of way. One of my favorite ways to enjoy summer corn, besides just eating raw, is on this Grilled Corn Cilantro Blue Pizza.
Do not turn your nose up at this recipe. I have been making this pizza recipe for as long as I can remember. In fact, I think it came about when I still had roommates. Most likely all that was laying around was some frozen corn and pizza dough, cilantro and blue cheese (and not the good blue cheese). We were hungry, poor and did not want take out, and this groovy little pizza was born.
The recipe has evolved over the years, but still as it did some twenty years ago when I serve it folks are WOWed! Now I use homemade pizza dough. I also use fresh corn and a really good French blue cheese, the stinkier, the better. As well I toss in some shallots and garlic. Still good but only better from those early days of being poor with roommates!

My name is Denise, and I am the Chief Cooking Officer of Chez Us. I confess, I love everything about food; the look, feel, smell and taste. In fact, the first thing on my mind when I crawl out of bed, besides that first cup of coffee, is what we will be sharing at the table later that day.
