With Strawberry, Arugula, and Goat Cheese

Executive chef Eric Lee of Simi Winery likes to create dishes that pair well with the vintages at the winery in idyllic Healdsburg, in Sonoma. This grilled pizza gets its sweetness from the strawberries and its bitter bite from the onions and arugula. It pairs well with the fruity and crisp Simi Sauvignon Blanc.
