Roasted Corn, Poblano and Cheddar Pizza (Cooking Light)

Anna Sciancalepore Antoniello


This is a nice change of pace from your typical pizza.

You will never know it's "light".
I found this in a Cooking Light cookbook back from 2006. My husband and I have been enjoying it ever since.

The poblano peppers are not spicy and are a mild chile. They have a smokey flavor and just a hint of heat. So don't be afraid to try this.
