Gordon Ramsay Shared His Sweet Corn Puree Pizza Recipe

Gordon Ramsay's Pizza Recipe Swaps Tomato Sauce For Sweet Corn Puree, So Colour Me Intrigued

Gordon Ramsay sees your basic cheese pizza, and he raises you this one-of-a-kind variation. The British chef recently shared the recipe for his Corn, Chorizo, and Chicken Pizza, which swaps a classic tomato sauce for a base made of — are you ready for this? — pureed sweet corn. Colour me intrigued! As someone who typically sticks to eating pesto or white sauce pizzas (tomatoes and I just don't mix!), I'm very much on board with this concept.

The flavourful dish is straight off the menu at his London-based restaurant Gordon Ramsay Street Pizza, and I can hardly say I'm surprised that Gordon's the mastermind behind such an untraditional creation. In addition to the whole corn puree situation, the pizza calls for shallots, strips of chicken breast, sliced chorizo sausage, and a smattering of coriander leaves. Get the full recipe ahead, and try not to drool all over yourself in the process.

Ingredients

  1. For the Sweet Corn Puree:
    500 grams sweet corn (roughy 3 cups)
    100 milliliters water (roughly 1/2 cup, slightly less)
    1 banana shallot, diced
    30 grams butter (1/8 cup)
    1 small garlic clove, chopped
    1/2 teaspoon chili powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  1. For the Pizza:
    1 ball fresh pizza dough (here's our go-to recipe)
    100 milliliters sweet corn puree (roughly 1/2 cup, slightly less)
    50 grams diced mozzarella cheese (roughly 1/2 cup, slightly less)
    1/2 chicken breast, cooked and cut into strips
    1/3 cured chorizo sausage, thinly sliced
    Sprig of cilantro
    1 spring onion, thinly sliced
    10 milliliters olive oil (roughly 2 teaspoons)

Directions

For the Sweet Corn Puree:

  1. Melt butter in large saucepan.
  2. Add diced shallot and chopped garlic, and cook on medium heat until soft and translucent.
  3. Add sweet corn and cook on medium heat for 10 minutes.
  4. Add water and simmer for 30 more minutes until corn is soft.
  5. Once cool, blend the mixture in a food processor until smooth.
  6. Season to taste, and set aside.

For the Pizza:

  1. Dust hard surface with flour and semolina, and place pizza dough on top. Push down on dough with hands and gently stretch, keeping it round. In order to form a thicker crust, avoid touching the dough's outside edge.
  2. Place the round pizza dough onto a 10- to 12-inch pizza baking tray.
  3. Spread the sweet corn puree over the stretched pizza base.
  4. Sprinkle on mozzarella cheese, sliced spring onion, chicken, and chorizo.
