Strawberry on Pizza Ingredients:
Pizza Dough – either homemade or store-bought. We make this pizza with our favorite poolish overnight pizza dough or our same-day pizza dough. You can also use flatbread to make this pizza. The strawberries and goat cheese don’t take long when in the oven.
Strawberries – Use fresh strawberries on this pizza than frozen ones. Frozen ones turn out mushy when they get thawed, and it doesn’t bake well on the pizza.
Our go-to garlic olive oil sauce, aka olive oil, a garlic clove, salt, and pepper.
Arugula – Adds a nice peppery bite to the sweet flavors.
Balsamic glaze, which is balsamic vinegar reduced with maple syrup and salt.
