This beautiful berry-topped pizza tastes as good as it looks! It's impossible to resist the tender pecan short-bread crust, rich cream cheese layer, glossy berry topping and sprinkling of luscious fresh berries. It's so convenient to make the night before and serve the next morning. —Maria Schuster Wolf Point, Montana

love this dessert although it is on the expensive side. Made it when berries were on sale. Beautiful to the eye and very delicious.

I have had this recipe for years but finally made it last week. Berries were on sale but still expensive. Very tasty and beautiful to look at. I will make again when berries are on sale.

This is VERY GOOD! I made it the night before taking it into work. I was afraid that the crust would become soggy, but it didn't. Great item for a hot summer day.
