i’ve always liked to make and eat this =] this is such a great summer recipe and it’s got such beautiful presentation too. i mean, what’s better than fruit and pizza? this is also a popular recipe too; i was asked for it many times in college after i made it.

the glaze is optional and i rarely make it to top the pizza with.

i made it today for corinne’s baby shower. i didn’t have a circular pan, so i improvised and used a rectangular one instead. it worked out great, looked beautiful, and was very tasty, just like i remembered =]
