Strawberries don't just have to be for dessert. Try using Victorian Strawberries in a savoury recipe, such as this gourmet pizza.


  • 1 x 250g punnet Victorian Strawberries, washed and hulled

  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar or balsamic glaze

  • 1/2 tsp black pepper, coarsely ground

  • 1 large pizza base

  • 2 tbsp tomato pizza sauce

  • 1/2 red onion, finely sliced into half rings

  • 150g cooked turkey, sliced (may substitute with chicken or ham)

  • 75g brie cheese, sliced

  • 60g rocket, washed


  • 1.

    Preheat oven to 250°C.

  • 2.

    Slice the strawberries width ways into 11/2 cm pieces. Place in a large bowl and stir through the balsamic vinegar and the pepper to cover evenly, leave to marinate for 10 minutes.

  • 3.

    Spread the pizza base with the pizza sauce leaving a 2cm edge.

  • 4.

    Distribute the turkey and brie evenly over the pizza base.

  • 5.

    Add the onions to the strawberries and mix through the marinade. Distribute this topping over the pizza base evenly, then drizzle any remaining marinade over the top of the pizza.

  • 6.

    Cook for 8-10 minutes or until the top is lightly browned and the base is crispy.

  • 7.

    Cut pizza into 8 slices and top with the rocket. Serve immediately.
