My daughter has an obsession with strawberries. If I let her, she would eat so many strawberries she would soon turn into one!
Whether eating strawberries in sweet dishes or in savory dishes, the girl can never have enough strawberries.

Strawberries on a pizza may sound odd to some, but stop for a moment and think about it.
- It is classic to pair strawberries with feta or blue cheese in a salad.
- It is also classic to top a pizza with tomato slices–and tomatoes are a fruit as well.
The sweetness from the strawberries contrast perfectly with the richness of the cheese. I am telling you that strawberries paired with mozzarella and feta cheese on a crispy flatbread crust is perfection–one bite and I know you will agree!
