Summer Entertaining: Farmers' Market Pizza

Flatbread pizza made with Brooklyn Bred pizza dough is quick, easy, and ready in less than 20 minutes.  This version is loaded with fresh farmer's market vegetables, turkey Italian sausage, and 2 chesses for the win!

Farmers' Market Pizza

This Farmers' Market Pizza is going to rock your summer weeknight!  Cooked ground turkey Italian sausage forms a base on a square pizza flatbread doused with Caramelized Onion and Garlic Marinara.  Then we add the veggie layers of fresh corn from the cob and cherry tomatoes.  All this topped with creamy chunks of goat cheese, and hunks of mozzarella cheese.  The result is a fresh summer pizza that's so tasty the whole family will enjoy this one.

Perfect to make on a weeknight, or weekend, or lunch.  Even as a snack!  It's ready in about 20 minutes from start to finish.


What Ingredients do I need?

  • flatbread pizza crust - I used Brooklyn Bred square pizza, but any Naan or flatbread will do
  • marinara Sauce - I used a Caramelized Onion and Garlic Marinara for more flavor
  • turkey Italian sausage - mild or hot
  • cherry tomatoes
  • corn on the cob
  • goat cheese
  • fresh mozzarella cheese
  • fresh parsley or basil
  • red pepper flakes

Substitutions and Variations

  • You could add any summer produce you like.  Zucchini or summer squash, bell peppers, and heirloom tomatoes are all good choices.
  • Use regular pizza dough, store bought or homemade.
  • Use any type of flatbread, Naan is a great one.
  • Change up the cheeses if you like.
  • Can't handle the heat?? Leave off the red pepper flakes.
  • Try this on the outdoor grill, it works great.
  • Anything goes with pizza!

Kitchen Tips and Notes

  • No need to cook the corn.  Cut raw corn off the cob and put it fresh on the pizza.  It will taste roasted and sweet once done.
  • Flatbread and Naan cook quickly, so make sure to set a time or watch closely.
  • I bought a fresh ball of mozzarella and just pulled off chunks of cheese and scattered them around.  Same with the goat cheese.  This way the cheese doesn't overwhelm the veggies but compliments them.
  • Make sure to double the recipe for more servings.

Farmers' Market Pizza

serves 2 people

1/3 cup of Marinara Sauce - I used a Caramelized Onion and Garlic Marinara
1/2 1lb. turkey Italian sausages (about 3 links, casings removed)
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 large corn on the cob, corn removed
1/2 pint of cherry tomatoes, halved
1/3 cup fresh mozzarella cheese, chunked
2 oz goat cheese, chunked
1 square Brooklyn Bred pizza crust

Lay the pizza crust out on a baking sheet.  Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

In a skillet over medium high heat, add the olive oil, and the sausage, casings removed.  Cook, crumbling the meat, until cooked through, about 5-6 minutes.

Spread about 1/3 cup (or more if you like) of marinara sauce over the crust of the pizza.  Top with the cooked sausage.  Add the fresh corn and cherry tomato halves distributing them around the pizza.  Top with chunks of fresh mozzarella and goat cheese.

Place in the oven and bake for 10 minutes.  Remove from oven and cut in to 4 slices. Serve.
