For an easy showstopper, give Julie Meyer's eye-popping fruit pizza a try. "Like everyone else, I enjoy desserts...but not the calories that come with them," writes the student from Madison, Wisconsin. "My roommates and I don't feel guilty about gobbling down a pizza with good-for-you toppings like strawberries, Kiwifruit and pineapple."

"I made this for one of my acting classes out here in Los Angeles. Actors, *pfsh... always gotta avoid something. They're a sensitive bunch. I made this sugar free and everyone loved it! I've made the traditional sugary version before and both were polished off quite nicely!"
