Sweet & Spicy Strawberry Pizza

I haven’t met a person that doesn’t like pizza.  There are so many different styles, varieties, toppings, and flavor profiles that there is one for just about any palette.  This is a very non-traditional pizza that I have fallen in love with!  The zippy sauce, sweet onions, and fresh strawberries are so refreshing!

On a pizza stone or baking sheet sprayed with oil, spread your dough to desired shape.  Depending on what dough you use, you may need to pre-bake it a bit.  Since the dough I used was gluten-free, it was easiest to smooth and shape it with water on my hands.  The extra liquid means I needed to pre-bake my crust for about 5 minutes to keep it from being mushy.
