Ingredients (6)

  • 1/2 yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 (24-ounce) can crushed San Marzano tomatoes
  • 1 pint strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 10 fresh basil leaves, torn into pieces
  • Red pepper flakes, for sprinkling

Summary

What do you get when you incorporate fresh strawberries into the tomato sauce for an otherwise classic margherita pizza? A strawberita, of course. The berries are a surprising addition—they give the sauce a bright, fruity quality that tastes right at home on a pizza crust, and it’s a great way to make the best of unripe strawberries out of season.

This recipe was featured as part of our Making Unripe Winter Strawberries Taste Delicious project.

Instructions

  1. 1Sauté the chopped onion in the olive oil over medium-low heat until soft, about 5 minutes.
  2. 2Add the tomatoes and strawberries and simmer until the strawberries have cooked down and the sauce has thickened slightly, about 15 minutes.
  3. 3Make a margherita pizza in the usual way, spreading the strawberry-tomato sauce on the dough instead of puréed tomatoes.
  4. 4Sprinkle with the torn basil leaves and some red pepper flakes before serving.
