Ingredients

FOR THE SAUCE:

  • cup strawberry jam or preserves
  • 3 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha chili sauce
  • teaspoon salt

FOR THE PIZZA:

  • 1 ball pizza dough for a 12-inch pizza
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 6 ounces bacon, cut in 1 inch pieces and cooked until crispy and drained
  • 2 Tablespoons diced red onion
  • ¼ cup fresh strawberries diced
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro finely chopped

Instructions

  • Place a pizza stone on middle rack of the oven. Preheat oven to 450 degrees 1 hour before cooking.

FOR THE SAUCE:

  • In a small saucepan over medium heat, add the Balsamic vinegar, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until the vinegar is reduced by half and it’s a syrupy consistency, about 4 minutes.
    Heat the balsamic until it is thickened and reduced.
  • Add strawberry preserves and sriracha. Mix well and set aside.
    Add in the strawberry jam.

FOR THE PIZZA:

  • Liberally dust a pizza peel with cornmeal. On a floured surface, roll or pat the dough into a 12-inch circle. Move the dough to the pizza peel and reshape as needed.
    Roll the dough out to a 12-inch round.
  • Spread the sauce over the pizza leaving a 1-inch border.
    Cover the pizza with the balsamic mixture.
  • Sprinkle the cheese evenly other the pizza. Then layer the pizza with the cooked bacon and red onion. Use the pizza peel to carefully jiggle the pizza on the baking stone in the preheated oven. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the crust is golden and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
    Top the pizza with cheese, chicken, bacon, and red onion and bake until golden.
  • Remove the pizza from the oven and sprinkle with the strawberries and cilantro. Let the pizza cool for 5 minutes before slicing into 8 pieces and serving.
    Sprinkle the pizza with chopped strawberries and cilantro.
