Confession time: I’ve known about this pizza for the better part of a year, and I haven’t shared it with you yet.  Shame on me.  But you see, I had good intentions.  I first tried this pizza last summer, right at the tail end of strawberry season.  Really, I think I used our last container of strawberries to make it before they started to go south fast.  And we loved it.  This presented a dilemma.  Share the pizza with you then, when (a) strawberries were no longer available or (b) you might be tempted to make it with flavorless berries, or (c) wait all fall and winter until strawberry season arrived again.  You can see which route I opted to take, and I think it was the right one.

Now that good berries are  available, I suggest you find some, make this, and prepare to be wowed.  If you think the idea of strawberries on pizza is completely strange, I was right there with you before I had tried it.  This was a recipe I initially tried simply because I was intrigued, and I think we had extra bacon in the fridge.  Suffice it to say, we dreamed about this pizza all through the fall and winter months.  When I made it again recently, I served it to guests who were also politely skeptical but just like me, they are now fully convinced.  The flavor combinations may seem odd but I swear, it just works.  The sweet-savory-mild spiciness is awesome.  Give it a chance, you won’t be sorry!
