Strawberry Goat Cheese Pizza

Strawberry Goat Cheese Pizza

One bite of this sweet and savory strawberry goat cheese pizza and you will never forget it. As a big fan of any kind of pizza, I found this one to be especially delightful.

There’s something extra special about adding strawberries in dishes and recipes that are mostly savory. Strawberries, because of their sweet and slightly tart flavor (and beautiful red color) are ideal for pizza – especially when combined with a salty goat or feta cheese.

One of the best parts of this pizza is the balsamic drizzle. All these flavors dance around like a party in your mouth!
Enjoy!
