Remove garlic from oil, and discard garlic. Remove garlic oil from pan (I prefer to keep the garlic to add on top before baking)

Cut corn from cob

add corn to vegetable mixture

Making homemade pizzas was a very memorable part of my childhood, and with me being a vegetarian, of course i had to switch the average pizza. This recipe is great for a family that likes to bond and have fun cooking in the kitchen together and it only costs $2.49 per serving give or take the ingredients swapped, added, or removed.
