Sweet & Smoky Strawberry Pizza. Really, the name says it all.
And when asparagus season finishes and pizza night no longer finds us making Asparagus, Caramelized Onion, & Bacon Pizza, we can’t really be disappointed.
By then we’ve already started looking forward to this sweet & smoky pizza featuring beautiful bright red strawberries. (No supermarket clamshell substitutions please.) Since this pizza is also sporting a sprinkling of bacon as well as caramelized onions, you know it’s got to be good!
This year our berry patch did horribly! They were rotting before they even ripened. Overgrown with weeds and mulched with cheap black plastic we were finally able to get enough of the garden in that we could devote attention to the strawberries. We did the necessary work knowing how to keep strawberries from rotting even more. Sadly it was too late to get much more of a harvest.
We didn’t compensate by going out to make some bulk purchase of local berries to put up for the year. I’m hoping that by going without that it will make us all the more hungry for them next year and work harder to take proper care of them.
Homemade strawberry jam alone is a pretty big motivation in my opinion.
But I couldn’t let the season pass without enjoying 2 things:
1.) Strawberry Shortcake
2.) Sweet & Smoky Strawberry Balsamic Pizza
So long strawberry season! Hopefully we’ll be seeing more of you in years to come!
