    Add the balsamic vinegar to a small saucepan over medium-high heat.  Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and let cook 4-5 minutes or until reduced by about half with a thick, syrupy texture.  In a small bowl, combine the balsamic reduction with the strawberry jam and sriracha chili sauce.  Set aside.

    To make the pizza, heat the oven to 500˚ F and preheat a pizza stone for at least 30 minutes.  Roll out the pizza dough into a 12-14 inch round.  Lightly brush the perimeter of the dough with olive oil.  Spread the balsamic-strawberry mixture in a thin layer over the crust.  Layer with the chicken, bacon, onion, cheeses, cilantro, and strawberries.

    Transfer the pizza to the preheated pizza stone and bake until the cheese is melted and bubbling and the crust is lightly browned, about 11-12 minutes.  Remove from the oven and let cool slightly before slicing and serving.
