Brownie Berry Fruit Pizza

A few weeks back, I had an office party in celebration of the upcoming holidays. At these parties, everyone brings homemade dishes, baked goods, and appetizers. It took me several weeks to come up with my dessert, but I finally decided on the Brownie Berry Fruit Pizza. The recipe photo looked so delicious, I knew it would be a good choice. I work with so many good bakers and cooks, that I was very nervous and intimidated to bring my dessert. These people are Veterans compared to me. They have perfected their dishes to a "T". But, lluckily it was a crowd pleaser and they ate it all. I am really bad about not trying my baked goods before I give them away, so I had no idea what it even tasted like. Good thing there were some leftover pieces on the tray that I was able to scrape up and try, and well my suspicion was right, I did good. If you're looking for a very different dish that is aesthetically pleasing to look at and tastes great, this is certainly the one. I hope you try it & love it !
