Traeger Mexican Street Corn Pizza

Traeger Mexican Street Corn Pizza

Traeger Mexican Street Corn Pizza has all the yumminess of a traditional Mexican street corn recipe, but served on a pizza crust.

It’s got a little hint of wood fired flavor thanks to the pellet grill 🙂

This was our dinner, but when cut into smaller pieces it could easily be served as a fun appetizer.

This premade pizza crust makes these super simple to prepare, but feel free to use your own homemade crust if you prefer.

And to cut a few corners you could use canned corn, but I decided to go with grilled corn that I cut off the cob.

How to make Traeger Mexican Street Corn Pizza

If you are using canned corn you can skip this first part.

Brush the corn with olive oil, kosher salt, and pepper.

Then grill over medium high heat for 10 minutes turning a few times.

And when they are cooled, simply cut the kernels off the cobs.

As the corn was cooling I made a sauce, both to put on the pizza before cooking and also to drizzle over top before serving.

It’s a mixture of mayo, sour cream, lime juice, garlic, chili powder, ground red pepper, and Tajin seasoning.

Spread most of this sauce on either 2 Stonefire naan flatbreads or one large precooked pizza crust such as Boboli.

Then pile on some shredded cheese and cooked shredded or diced chicken.

If you prefer these pizzas to be vegetarian simply leave out the chicken.

Next up add the corn kernels that have been cut off the cob.

Then preheat your Traeger pellet grill to 375 degrees.

And place the pizza directly on the grill grate for 12 to 15 minutes.

Remove from the pellet grill once the cheese is melted and the crust is crisped how you like.

Finally add more yumminess to your Traeger Mexican Street Corn Pizza!

I started by drizzling more of the sauce over top with a sprinkle of chili powder and Tajin.

Then some crumbled cotija cheese, fresh cilantro, and my homemade sweet pickled red onions!

You could also serve with hot sauce, lime wedges, and/ or jalapenos slices.
