Brunch Berry Pizza Recipe

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
