Makeover Fruit Pizza

There’s nothing better than a guilt-free dessert, especially when it’s topped with refreshing and colorful fruit. We skimmed the calories and fat from a traditional fruit pizza to create one with about half the calories, fat and cholesterol. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

    Luscious fruit dessert! And so pretty! Make sure you press the cookie crumb crust together well on the pan. Can substitute other fruits in season. Don't feel like you have to use all the glaze if you have very sweet or very juicy fruit on the pie.

    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.

    Just me again, I did write out the glaze with too much cornstarch. Best bet is to experiment a little bit. Approx 4 tablespoons of cornstarch with appropriate amount of water to make it work is the best. Sorry about that mix up.

    I made this one time for my family and everyone loved it plus its healthy most of my family members are diabetic so they were able to have some to. I'm making it again this weekend for my friends. I highly recommend this recipe.

    I really enjoyed this recipe, but there is one thing that needs to be added. I have a pizza pan at home, but it has holes in the bottom. Not a good idea, since all the butter started melting and smoked out my kitchen.
