Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
Roll out your pizza dough into a 12-inch to 14-inch round on a floured surface. Top the pizza dough with the shredded mozzarella, big crumbles of goat cheese, and strawberries.
Bake on a lightly oiled baking sheet for about 35 to 40 minutes until the cheese is bubbling and golden and the crust is crisp underneath.
In a small saucepan, combine the vinegar and honey. Gently simmer the mixture on medium-low heat until it is reduced in volume by half and set aside.
