This includes her Balsamic Strawberry Walnut Pizza which has some amazing flavors going on with the fresh mozzarella and basil. Obviously, the star of the show is the balsamic strawberries. The walnuts add a nice crunch to every sweet and savory bite!

Ingredients:

  • 1 ball Whole wheat pizza dough
  • 10-12 Thinly sliced fresh mozzarella cheese
  • Fresh basil leaves
  • 1 cup Fresh Florida strawberries sliced
  • 1/4 cup Walnuts

For Balsamic Strawberry Reduction:

  • 1/4 cup Balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp Brown sugar
  • 1 cup Fresh Florida strawberries diced

Method:

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

In a small pot mix the balsamic vinegar and brown sugar. Bring to a boil, reduce and let it cook for about 10 minutes. Add the strawberries and let it cook for about 5-6 minutes.

In a pan dry roast the walnuts until fragrant.

Lightly flour your surface and roll your pizza dough into a 10-12 inch circle. Cover your sheet pan with parchment paper and transfer the rolled dough onto the parchment paper.

Drizzle some balsamic reduction over the dough. Follow with the fresh mozzarella and walnuts all over.

Arrange the strawberries all over and bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes.

Once it’s done scatter fresh basil all over and drizzle some of the balsamic sauce.
