Strawberry Pizza

Today I’ve got a quick and fab.u.lous pie for you. Strawberry Pizza! It’s perfect and just the ticket to usher in Spring with plump, juicy California strawberries. I’m almost certain we’ve had it every Easter since the beginning of time.  It’s always the most anticipated …and the first to get devoured…
