A note about serious food allergies

Summer flavors aren't just melting ice cream and perfect grill marks, fish jumping and cotton being high. Summer flavors are fresh corn, carefully cut off the cob, and bright bursts of red juicy tomatoes. Add in some herbaceous basil pesto, and put it all on a flatbread… livin' is easy in every bite. Now your father being rich and/or your mother being good lookin'… that we have nothing to do with. (Apologies, Mr. Gershwin.) Tip: To keep corn kernels from making a mess, hold the ear of corn vertically in a bowl. Cut downward, rotating corn as you go, so kernels end up in the bowl instead of scattered on your counter.

Customize It Instructions

  • Meat lovers! If adding protein, cook in medium non-stick pan, then transfer to a plate before cooking vegetables in Step 3. Place on top of flatbreads, or serve on the side. If using shrimp, pat dry and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook with 2 tsp. olive oil over medium-high heat until shrimp reach minimum internal temperature, 2-3 minutes per side. If using ground pork, combine with 1/4 tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper. Cook with 1 tsp. olive oil over medium-high heat. Break into small pieces with a spoon until no pink remains, 5-7 minutes. If adding bacon, line a plate with a paper towel. Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add bacon to hot pan. Flip occasionally until crisp, 6-8 minutes. Transfer to towel-lined plate to remove excess oil. Crumble into pieces and serve on flatbread.

  1. 1

    Toast the Flatbreads

    Place flatbreads directly on oven rack in hot oven and toast until golden brown and crispy, 12-14 minutes.

    While flatbreads bake, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Halve tomatoes.

    Peel and halve shallot. Cut into 1/4" slices.

    Peel husk off corn and remove kernels from cob, holding cob vertically and carefully slicing downward.

    Mince garlic.

    Combine ricotta, pesto, and a pinch of salt and pepper in a mixing bowl. Set aside.

  3. 3

    Start the Vegetables

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add corn to hot pan and cook undisturbed, 2 minutes.

    Stir in shallot and garlic. Then stir occasionally until corn is lightly browned, 2-3 minutes.

  4. 4

    Finish the Vegetables

    Stir tomatoes, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper into pan until combined.

    Remove from burner. Season with red pepper flakes (to taste).

  5. 5
