This was the perfect summer pizza!  another great one from Annie’s eats !  I used pizza dough from Trader Joes 🙂

Ingredients

For the sauce:
¼ cup balsamic vinegar
½ cup good quality strawberry jam or preserves
1 tsp. sriracha chili sauce

To assemble:
1 ball pizza dough
Olive oil, for brushing
1 cup shredded or diced cooked chicken
4 slices applewood smoked bacon, diced and cooked until crisp
½ cup thinly sliced yellow onion
4 oz. shredded mozzarella cheese
2 oz. freshly grated Parmesan cheese
2-3 tbsp. minced fresh cilantro
Scant ½ cup hulled strawberries, diced

Directions

  • Add the balsamic vinegar to a small saucepan over medium-high heat.  Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and let cook 4-5 minutes or until reduced by about half with a thick, syrupy texture.  In a small bowl, combine the balsamic reduction with the strawberry jam and sriracha chili sauce.  Set aside.
  • To make the pizza, heat the oven to 500˚ F and preheat a pizza stone for at least 30 minutes.  Roll out the pizza dough into a 12-14 inch round.  Lightly brush the perimeter of the dough with olive oil.  Spread the balsamic-strawberry mixture in a thin layer over the crust.  Layer with the chicken, bacon, onion, cheeses, cilantro, and strawberries.
  • Transfer the pizza to the preheated pizza stone and bake until the cheese is melted and bubbling and the crust is lightly browned, about 11-12 minutes.  Remove from the oven and let cool slightly before slicing and serving.
