Recipe by Malriah
The days of ham, pineapple and green peppers are over! This pizza is yummier, better for you and sooo much prettier than anything else you will find from Dominos, Pizza Hut or your local pizza place! A tip: Allow your fruit to drain very well so as not to sweat alot later! Cook time includes refrigeration time.
