Strawberry Balsamic Bacon Pizza

This was a pizza I made in 2012!!  When I was organizing my blog I saw it and thought I would give it another try tonight.  Martin2 and his friend Kaitlin along with Paige enjoyed this Simple and Delicious pizza.  It is funny, the last time I made this pizza was 3 years ago. Maybe I should organize my blog more often!

Strawberry Balsamic Bacon Pizza
(slightly adapted recipe from  Annie’s Eats blog)

May 003

Sauce

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup strawberry jam
1 Tablespoon Sriracha Chili Sauce

Ingredients for pizza

Pizza Dough
Olive Oil, for brushing
8 slices bacon (cut into 1/2 inch pieces, cooked until crisp)
1 small yellow or vidalia onion
Mozzarella Cheese
1/2 cup freshly, grated Parmesan Cheese
2-3 Tablespoons fresh parsley
1/2 cup diced strawberries

Directions

1.  Add the balsamic vinegar to a small saucepan over medium high heat.  Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and let cook 3-4 minutes or until reduced by about have with a thick, syrupy texture.  I usually take off the heat after the 3-4 minute time period.  As the sauce cools it thickens.  (That is my experience at least.) In a small bowl, combine the balsamic reduction, strawberry jam and sriracha chili sauce.  Set Aside.

2.  To make the pizza, preheat oven to 475 degrees.  Be sure to preheat pizza stone for at least 30 minutes.  Roll out the pizza dough into a 12-14 inch round.  Lightly brush perimeter of the dough with olive oil.  Spread the balsamic-strawberry mixture in a thin layer over the crust (You may not use all of it, I didn’t)  Layer with the bacon, strawberries, cheeses, onion and parsley. (I carmalized the onions and totally forgot to put them on the pizza.  I guess I will use them on a burger!  Next time I will add them. The pizza was still awesome!)

3.  Transfer pizza to oven onto stone.  Bake until cheese is melted and crust is lightly browned, about 12-14 minutes.  Remove from the oven and let cool slightly before slicing and serving.  Enjoy this simple and delicious pizza!

LOVED it!!  Simple and Delicious.  Give it a try. You will be pleasantly surprised.  🙂
