Andrew must have heard the word succotash recently because he suggested that I make a succotash pizza and then asked what goes into succotash. He knew that it had corn in it because he suggested this when I was asking what we could do with the fresh corn on the cob we got from The Good Food Collective (GFC).
To be honest, I had to look up the actual ingredients too. I read that succotash was a popular dish during the Depression because it was inexpensive. The main ingredients are corn and lima beans. I decided to add onion, garlic and pepper to give the pizza some flavor.
First, I shucked, boiled, and cut the corn on the cob. I chopped fresh onion that we also got from the GFC, then sauteed these ingredients with minced garlic. Then I added chopped red bell pepper. When the onion, garlic and pepper were finished I added the corn and lima beans. I made fresh pizza sauce and added some minced summer savory that we got from the GFC. After pre-baking the dough I spread on a thin layer of sauce, sprinkled on mozzarella cheese, then the succotash and let it bake.
This low budget pizza was fantastic. The summer savory added a spicy, peppery flavor to the sauce. The veggies tasted fresh and flavorful and the beans made my succotash pizza recipe pretty filling.
