“This is a kind of fun recipe for kids in the summer. There is something whimsical about a dessert pizza.
This recipe was originally from my middle school culinary arts class. I revisited the recipe for the first time in 2020 and made some revisions. Most importantly, instead of using store-bought strawberry glaze which is full of red food dye and lot of artificial ingredients, I used the glaze from my Strawberry Glacé Pie recipe. Additionally I’d recommend using real cream instead of Dream Whip. And instead of mixing the fresh strawberries in the glaze and spreading them on top, I like to arrange strawberry slices decoratively on top of the glaze. ” – April Ferre
