Banana Berry Brownie Pizza

{there is fruit on it so it's healthy, right?}
If you didn't already know this, you do now. Sugar cookies and I have issues. I've only made them successfully once in my life and luckily for me, I blogged about it. I've come to terms with it, and so should you. I saw all these super yummy fruit pizza recipes amidst my daily recipe browsing, but my better judgment told me to not even try to attempt a sugar cookie crust again.
So then I decided I should make the crust out of something much easier, and something I knew I could make no problemo. Brownies! What's better than chocolate? Nothing. Nothing is better than chocolate. I'm not really into citrus fruits mixed with the chocolate taste so then I had to come up with super yummy fruits that go really well with chocolate.
Bananas. Strawberries. Raspberries.
I'm sure there are others but that right there had me drooling. So off I went to the kitchen to make this delish of a brownie pizza! Go me!

For the brownie crust:
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2/3 cup all purpose flour

4 oz cream cheese, softened (about half a brick)
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

Strawberries, sliced
Bananas, sliced
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted (for drizzling)

Preheat oven to 325F. Spray a pizza pan with cooking spray, set aside.
In a medium sauce pan, bring to a boil: sugar, water and butter. Remove from heat and add chocolate chips, stir until smooth. Add eggs and vanilla and stir until completely blended together. Then add flour and baking soda, mix well. Spread brownie batter on to pizza pan, making it as smooth and even as possible. Bake for about 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean, and the edges are slightly crisp. Let cool.
Using an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese until smooth, add in powdered sugar and vanilla and beat again until combined and smooth. Spread over cooled brownie crust.
Next, cup your strawberries and bananas. You can arrange them however you want. Don't be afraid to get creative. Hey, you can even just dump them on it and it will still look amazing! Drizzle with melted chocolate, if desired.
