Grilled Corn & Okra Pizza

Using your favorite barbecue sauce makes a sweet and tangy base for this grilled pizza. We love this vegetarian pizza on its own, but cooked chicken or shrimp would make a nice addition, if you choose.

  • 2 corn, husked

  • 8 small okra pods

  • 1 small red onion, sliced in 1/4-inch-thick rounds

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper

  • teaspoon salt

  • 1 pound pizza dough, preferably whole-wheat

  • All-purpose flour for rolling

  • ½ cup barbecue sauce

  • ½ cup shredded Cheddar cheese

  • ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese

  • 2 tablespoons torn fresh basil

  • 2 tablespoons chopped pickled jalapeño pepper


  1. Preheat grill to medium-high.

  2. Brush corn, okra and onion slices with oil; sprinkle with pepper and salt. Grill, turning occasionally, until charred, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board. When cool enough to handle, cut the corn kernels off the cobs, slice the okra and divide the onion into rings.

  3. Meanwhile, roll dough into a 12-inch oval on a lightly floured surface. Transfer to a lightly floured baking sheet.

  4. Oil the grill rack. Carefully transfer the dough to the grill. Grill until puffed and the bottom is lightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes. Flip and spread barbecue sauce over the crust. Top with Cheddar, mozzarella and the grilled vegetables. Grill until the cheese is melted, 3 to 5 minutes.

  5. Top the pizza with basil and jalapeños.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
