Refreshing fruit pizzas are growing in popularity from coast to coast. That's why the Light & Tasty Test Kitchen skimmed the calories and fat from a traditional version, and created this delightful treat. It has nearly half the calories, fat and cholesterol of the varieties you'd find at a gourmet bakery.

"Great makeover for a dessert we eat a lot in the summer. The crust appeared to not hold together well, so I may change amount next time, but when it was cut it all stayed together! Family said they liked this one better than the previous recipe that used a whole sugar cookie mix as crust! A keeper!"

"I prefer a bit of a more pastry-like, less crumbly crust, but a good recipe."

"I absolutely love this recipe and have made it countless times! I personally prefer it without the glaze, I think it makes it taste much more fresh. Also, I like to load it with all types of fresh fruit."

"I made this for a housewarming party and before I knew it there were just crumbs on the tray. I got so many compliments; so simple and yet an amazing treat!"

"I have made this several times. It makes a spectular looking dessert. Guests always ask for the recipe. In order to make the crust easier to manage, I increase the ingredients by half (less make-over). I use in-season/on-hand fruit and have used orange juice to supplement the pineapple for my favorite results."
