The bright strawberries, walnut, cheese makes it look so pretty and the addition of balsamic reduction sauce turns this into an anytime decadent delight. Ready under 15 minutes and perfect to share with the family/friends.This ‘Walnut and Strawberry Pizza with Balsamic Reduction’ makes such a yummy anytime snack that I can’t stop raving about them. I’ve tried a combination of sweet (fruits+nuts) pizza but nothing beats a Walnut+Strawberry combination with a balsamic reduction sauce. It’s sweet, tangy and topped with that ooey-gooey cheese – a heavenly taste that can be achieved within 15 minutes within the comfort of your home. And the best part, I’m also telling you ‘How’ we can make this tangy-sweet ‘Balsamic Reduction’ sauce – that’s just super yum and can be used to drizzle upon any sweet or savory recipes (think ice-creams / fresh fruits / bowl of salad and the list goes on).We have been eating this pizza for ages and it has been a part of many of our house parties/get-together and trust me, it always gives people a feel of noshing on a ‘Gourmet Delight’. Infact, I cannot say who loves it more? Is it the kids or the grown-ups as the moment this gets served it’s gone within seconds. We have also tried this pizza with many different bases like fresh homemade pizza dough, store-bought pizza crust, naan bread and even pita bread at times and the results are AWESOME EVERYTIME ! Although I’m using a mix of mozzarella and cream-cheese but you can use any kind of cheese too.
- Walnuts are a delicious and versatile ingredient that adds flavor, crunch and depth to sweet and savory dishes alike.
- Walnuts are the champion of plant-based omega-3 (alpha-linolenic acid or ALA) among nuts and are the only nut to provide a significant source of the essential nutrient (2.5 grams per ounce).
- In addition to omega-3 fatty acids, walnuts offer other important components of a healthy diet, including 4 grams of protein and 2 grams of fiber per ounce.
With so many benefits, they surely make an excellent choice and can be added in any kind of meal. Now, to make our Balsamic Sauce, all you need is balsamic vinegar + sugar and just reduce it over medium heat for 7-8 minutes. That’s it and store this sauce in a clean sterile jar for up to 1 month in the fridge. The only thing you need to remember is to keep stirring it every minute and keep an eye on it (as the vinegar burns really quickly). I actually made a fresh batch of this sauce when making this recipe as I was out of the old one and sprinkled some over the freshly baked pizza too (which is optional). Also, I added some fresh mint leaves, but you can top it with basil or simply eat them without any further topping. It’s just pure deliciousness and you just can’t stop at one bite. So be prepared and make some extra for a night snack 😉 I hope you make them soon and do share a picture or comment below to let me know when you did.
