These simple sweet corn flatbread pizza are made with just a handful of everyday ingredients and can be ready in less than 30 minutes.

The base of these individual pizzas are simple yogurt flatbreads made with a mix of plain and spelt flours. No yeast needed in this recipe, just some baking powder to help flatbreads to puff up. You can skip spelt flour and use only plain flour.

Making the base for sweet corn flatbread pizza

The dough comes together easily, just combine all ingredients in one bowl and knead a soft dough. Then roll out flatbreads, cook them on the stove - for this you need only 5-6 minutes. The trick is to cook them on a high heat to help them puff up and get nice crust.

We brush flatbreads with olive oil and prebake for 2-3 minutes before adding the topping. This way flatbreads will be crispy and nice golden and not soggy.

What you'll need for pizza topping

Topping for this pizza is quite simple, you will need only FRESH MOZZARELLA, SWEET CORN and FRESH ROSEMARY LEAVES.

Be sure to drain mozzarella before cutting into smaller pieces, to avoid soggy pizzas. You can use fresh, canned or frozen corn for this recipe, but you will have to drain the corn very well and dry before placing on the pan.

We sauté sweetcorn for a few minutes in a pan to intensify the flavour. All is topped with aromatic fresh rosemary leaves. Any other fresh or dried herb will also work fine here (oregano, thyme, basil...).

Bake flatbreads for about 10 minutes or until they become crisp and gold.

Making these corny pizzas is a breeze once you have ready flatbreads. Make a bunch of flatbreads, wrap them into aluminium foil, put in plastic freezer bag and freeze. This way you can make these pizzas in only 15 minutes at any time.
