Fruit Pizza

Summer is halfway over and the food at the Farmer's Market just keeps getting more delicious! The corn and fresh fruit has come in, which is very exciting in my house.  Usually the fresh fruit and corn just get eaten plain, but is always fun to mix it up! This recipe is a fruit pizza.  A fruit pizza is a desert and is not the kind with tomato sauce and cheese.  This recipe is deliciously sweet and the fruit make it even more delectable! For this recipe choose any fruits you want and just put them on this pizza.  I hope you enjoy this recipe and are having a great summer!
