Strawberry Balsamic Pizza

Strawberries on pizza? Yes please! Top it with fresh basil and a drizzle of balsamic reduction and welcome to Flavor City! And no, I’m NOT crazy… If you think about it, tomatoes are a fruit too 😉

 

I came up with this simple, maybe odd, recipe while searching for a unique way to use strawberries. My first reaction was, “who the heck puts fruit on pizza?” Followed by, “sounds about right.”

 

My Greek Yogurt Pizza Dough is the perfect addition to this sweet & tangy combo. Plus, it’s packed with protein and probiotics. Throw on some antioxidant packed strawberries and you’ve got yourself a nutrient powerhouse. 

 

You can make Strawberry Balsamic Pizza with a variety of cheeses, but I tried to keep it simple. If you want to be adventurous try adding crumbled goat cheese with the mozzarella or use a mix of ricotta and parmesan. 

 

How to make balsamic reduction

Don’t waste your money on a fancy bottle at the grocery store, if you have balsamic vinegar and honey you’re all set! Heat them in a saucepan until it is reduced in volume by half (reduction.. get it??). It takes about 10-15 minutes and you’ll notice is thickens a bit too. 

 

The chewy crust, creamy cheese, sweet strawberries and tangy balsamic all come together in a delicious bite that you will want to eat over and over!
