The One With the Brownies and Berries Pizza

It's no secret that I like pizza. And dessert. So when I saw the opportunity to combine the two, I thought it was pretty fantastic.
Brownies and Berries Pizza 
  • Brownie mix (I used Duncan Hines) and ingredients required, usually something like
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/3 cup + 2 Tbls sugar
  • 1 carton strawberries
  • 1 carton raspberries
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 Tbls oil
Preheat oven to 350. Combine brownie mix and eggs, oil, and water as directed on box.  Pour batter onto a greased pizza pan or cookie sheet (that has edges) - the point is that you don't want it to be as thick as regular brownies. Bake for 15-20 minutes.
Meanwhile, rinse and cut the strawberries into bite-size slivers. Rinse the raspberries and put them in the bowl of strawberries. Sprinkle with 2 Tbls sugar and toss to coat. Set aside to soak in their juices for about 20 minutes.
In a separate bowl, use a mixer to beat together cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until smooth and spreadable.
Once the brownies have cooled, spread the cream cheese frosting on top. Drain the strawberries and raspberries and then distribute over cream cheese frosting.
In a microwave safe bowl, melt the chocolate chips, beginning with 30 seconds and then in 10 second intervals, stirring between each. Once the chips are melted, add 1 Tbls oil and stir to combine. Drizzle over your strawberries and raspberries for the final touch.
For optimum taste, refrigerate your pizza for about an hour.

It's really yummy. You should try it. Maybe for a book club meeting where you discuss The Lemon Tree by Sandy Tolan? Nope? That's just us?
