Pair sweet corn with spicy hot sausage and toasted almonds for a quick and easy cheesy pizza any night of the week.
Pizza seems to be a staple in our household. I have two teenage boys who can put away a large pizza between the two of them. Pepperoni seems to be the topping of their choice but sometimes the grownups like to eat outside the box.
Spicy Sausage, Sweet Corn & Havarti Cheese Pizza is a change from the standard. Hot crumbled sausage or chorizo adds a little heat while sweet corn and toasted almonds lend a sweet and nutty crunch. Havarti is a smooth, buttery cheese that works great on this pizza.
Pizza is really the ultimate comfort food and this recipe would be perfect for pizza night or for a party appetizer. Also be sure to check out my Chicken Barbecued Pizza.

Spicy Sausage, Sweet Corn & Havarti Cheese Pizza
Serves 4. Total time: 30 minutes. Printable Recipe
- 1 thin crust pizza shell
- 1/2 cup pizza sauce
- 1 pound hot sausage, cooked, drained and crumbled
- 4 to 5 slices Havarti cheese, sliced thin for sandwiches
- 3/4 cup cooked fresh or canned corn kernels (1 ear)
- 1/4 red onion, sliced thin
- 1/4 cup sliced almonds
- 1 teaspoon dried parsley
- Olive oil
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Prepare the pizza shell and spread the pizza sauce a 1/2 inch from the edge. Add the cheese on top of the sauce, ripping the slices into smaller pieces if necessary.
Add the crumbled sausage, red onion and corn on top of the cheese and sprinkle on the almonds last. Shake on the dried parsley, drizzle with olive oil and bake for 20 to 30 minutes or until the crust has browned and the onions have caramelized.
Allow the pizza to cool for one minute before slicing and serving.
