Strawberry Balsamic & Brie Pizza

It goes without saying that pizza is an all-time favorite. And while you can't go wrong with a plain cheese slice, it's fun to experiment with unique ingredients. Take this strawberry balsamic and brie pizza, for example. The strawberries, which are marinated in balsamic vinegar, are perfectly sweet and tart. The creamy brie and fresh basil add a rich and aromatic twist. Together, these flavorful ingredients make for a summery pizza that's hard to resist. Here's how to make it yourself.
