“I just love the combination of fruit, almonds and chocolate that makes this brownie so unique,” relates Sue Kauffman of Columbia City, Indiana. “The fruit lightens the chocolate a bit and makes it feel like you are eating something sinfully healthy.”

"I've made the typical fruit pizza numerous times but this was a nice change of pace. You can use any fruit you like and arrange in different designs to fit your occasion too. Delicious!"

MY REVIEW

"My first problem with this recipe was that I didn't have the right size pizza pan. 14" is sort of an odd size, it seems to me; mine was more like 12-13". I used it anyway, lined the oven with foil and held my breath as I watched to see if it would overflow. It was full to the brim but never did overflow onto the oven. All went well with the topping, but I made a mistake with the fruit. I used only strawberries because that's what I had. It seemed to me that it needed a glaze of some sort to hold the fruit in place. So I melted strawberry jelly and drizzled it over the berries, being careful not to get it close to the edges of the pizza. In retrospect this was not a good idea. When I went to serve the pizza at the potluck I took it to, I found that the glaze had somehow seeped under the crust and made it very soft and mushy.The taste was awesome and people raved about this dessert, but next time I will not try and add a glaze. I will also look around for a 14" pizza pan. All in all, though, I'm glad I tried this and will definitely make the recipe again."
