From the Test Kitchen

We’ve designed this pizza especially for summer. You’ll create a unique, seasonal pie with complex flavor using toppings of fresh corn and bell pepper (which are both just coming into season). To complement the sweetness of the vegetables, you’ll use Taleggio, a mild, rich cheese from the Alpine valleys of Lombardy, Italy. Piquant Parmesan and a simply-dressed arugula salad on top complete this refreshingly new spin on traditional pizza.
