1. Preheat the pizza oven with the pizza stone on the rack
to 700°F.
2. In a small bowl, combine the sour cream, lime juice, and salt.
Set aside.
3. Stretch the pizza dough to a 10- to 12-inch round.
4. Transfer the dough to the pizza peel generously dusted with flour.
5. Scatter the Oaxaca cheese over the dough. Top with the corn
and poblanos.
6. Gently shimmy the pizza on the peel to ensure it isn’t sticking.
If the dough is sticking, gently lift the dough and spread
additional flour underneath.
7. Set the timer for 5 minutes. Slide the pizza off the peel
and onto the pizza stone. Start the timer. When the timer
sounds, check the pizza. If baked to desired doneness, use the
peel to remove the pizza from the oven, or bake for about 1
more minute. Slide the pizza onto a cutting board.
8. Drizzle the lime-sour cream crema to taste over the pizza.
Garnish with the cotija, chile powder, cilantro, flaky sea salt,
and pepper. Slice and serve.
