Summertime is right around the corner. (YAYYY!!!) You can almost taste the salt in the air as we get closer to being able to take beach trips. We had a few days of summer-like weather last week and I must admit that we were so excited. The kids happily ran around and played in the hose and at the playground everyday. The girls were excited to plant seeds for new flowers all over the flower beds and start working in our vegetable garden. We love being able to play outside all day, swim in the pool, and of course, cookouts! We love hosting and being invited to cookouts and BBQs. Grilled burgers, fresh fruit, potato salad, and of course, sweet, juicy corn on the cob.
What if I told you that you didn’t have to wait until summer to taste that sweet, juicy, corn on the cob? That you could get it right now. Say whatt!? It’s true! I couldn’t believe it myself. As soon as I learned that I could grab it in the store right now, I was super excited and ran out to grab some. Sunshine Sweet Corn, grown in Florida, is available right now without having to wait until it’s really summer! Thank you Florida!
We visited the website and were instantly drawn to the Cheesy Corn Pizza with Bacon & Scallions. Cheese + Corn + Bacon…Yes, Please! I was a little skeptical because there’s no actual sauce on here, but the juiciness from the corn gives it the impression that there is one. Sunshine Sweet Corn is non-GMO, tender, and your best guarantee for delicious, sweet corn in April and May.
With fresh mozzarella, corn, and scallions, alongside freshly crumbled bacon and homemade pizza dough, you will be left feeling like you are already in the midst of summertime. We highly recommend trying this Cheesy Corn Pizza with bacon and scallions!
