makes four servings 

5 slices bacon 
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar 
1 tablespoon honey 
2 4.4 oz.  whole-grain naan or one 12-inch whole wheat pizza crust 
3 ounces goat cheese crumbled (about 3/4 cup) 
1 1/2 cups sliced fresh strawberries 
1 1/2 cups baby arugula or baby spinach 
1/2 cup chopped fresh basil (optional) 

Preheat the oven to 375ºF if using naan or 450 degrees if using pizza crust. Lay bacon in a small skillet and cook over medium-high heat until crisp, 5 to 7 minutes, turning once. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels to drain. Let cool slightly, then crumble. Meanwhile, bring vinegar to a boil over medium-high heat in a small nonstick saucepan. Reduce heat to low and simmer until reduced by half, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in honey. Return to heat and simmer 3 minutes more; set aside. Top naan or pizza crust with goat cheese, strawberries and bacon. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until cheese is melted. Top pizza with arugula or spinach and, if desired, basil; drizzle with 2 tablespoons balsamic sauce.
