Ultimate Fruit Pizza Recipe

Ultimate Fruit Pizza Recipe

Here’s a classic dessert from Peggy Galyen of Tilden, Nebraska that makes a refreshing snack any time of year. "We made smaller individual pizzas at school with our junior-high students," she says. "All of them enjoyed choosing their favorite fruits to make the pizzas and then eating them. They’re a fast, fun party idea for kids of all ages!"
