Makeover Fruit Pizza Recipe

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.
