Strawberry Balsamic & Goat Cheese Pizza
You guys, strawberries finally taste good again and you have no idea how happy that makes me feel! Those darned winter strawberries sometimes trick me into thinking they are going to be soft and sweet from their nice red color, only to disappoint me with a hard bland strawberry. With the warm weather here, the produce is starting to take a serious turn for the better and I couldn’t be more excited about it.
This pizza combines so many of my favorite things, fresh fruit, soft honey goat cheese, basil and my all-time favorite balsamic reduction. The flavors meld together in an amazing vegetarian meal that is perfect for a Meatless Monday, light summer meal or a fun way to change up Friday night pizza.
Not only does this make for a great meal but it is also a fun way to serve up dessert with a twist!
- 1 Pillsbury thin pizza crust in a tube
- 1 qt strawberries, quartered
- 4 oz. goat cheese
- 1 c. shredded parmesan
- 1/3 c. basil, chiffonade
- Balsamic Reduction
- Preheat your oven to 400° with the pizza stone or pan inside the oven, warming up. While the oven is heating, roll out your crust on the counter so it is ready to toss on the pizza stone. Once the oven is preheated, remove the stone, give it a quick spray of non-stick spray and place your crust in the center of the stone. Return the crust to the oven for 10 minutes. NOTE: By allowing the pizza stone to heat up before you place the crust on it, it will give you a nice crispy bottom. If you prefer a softer crust, feel free to skip that step.
- Remove the crust from the oven and quickly top it with strawberries, goat cheese and Parmesan. Immediately return the pizza to the oven for an additional 5-7 minutes until the crust is completely baked and the cheese is melted. Drizzle the top of the pizza with the balsamic reduction and sprinkle with basil. Serve immediately.
