Florida Strawberry Pecan Pizza #foodbloggers4fl

Today, food bloggers are coming together to highlight groups that are helping with Irma relief. And we’re sharing some Florida food – because food is our love language.

I decided to go with something comforting and featuring a Florida staple – strawberries. There are more than 10,000 acres of strawberries growing in Florida! They’re the #2 grower in the country. What a better way to honor Florida than with Strawberries?

This pizza is like a taste of summer. With all fresh ingredients, this is an awesome showcase of Florida’s strawberries.

But, of course, Florida isn’t the only place that felt the effects of Irma. The list of charities below highlights groups helping out with Irma relief in Florida and throughout the Caribbean. If you’re planning to donate, these are all great options.

  1. I just have to make this ASAP! Strawberries are a perfect way to honor Florida. I saw posts of some of the berry fields and how they were affected by the storm. Hopefully they are back and ready in time to plant because I always look forward to those first sweet berries hitting the stores in early spring!
