Cooking With CESI: Easy Fruit Pizza

I scream, you scream, we all scream for…..PIZZA. 🙂

As summer winds down, many people are enjoying athe last long weekend of the season with Labor Day cookouts and parties. Whether you are hosting a cookout, or attending a party, everybody tends to get excited about dessert. Why not serve a simple, elegant and inexpensive fruit pizza? This recipe comes from our friends at Pillsbury -- I’ve seen many variations of this recipe and it’s always been a hit at any event I’ve taken it to.

The recipe serves 10-12 depending on the size of the slices, and I estimated the cost of ingredients at less than $15, so the cost per serving clocks in at $1.25-$1.50 per person. Not bad for a delicious and fun dessert.
