Fruit Pizza

I have to provide a treat for my next book club meeting (being held at my home next week). So, was thinking about doing a fruit pizza - but am not sure which recipe I should use (or perhaps a merging of the two? chocolate is a good thing - marshmallows with fruit not so much).

There are many such recipe options on the internet - these were the two that came out on the top of my list of potential recipes (not listed in any particular order).

Please provide advice and feedback if you have it - I have never made a fruit pizza before!! But it does sound really good!!

  1. Becky, I've never made fruit pizza but I've had one like that first recipe. It was yummy. Except I don't think there was chocolate...I agree, the marshmallows aren't going to help anything! Good luck!

  2. I love fruit pizza. I've also had one like the first one and that's the one I would make.
