Brownie Pizza

Brownies are just about the perfect food. Right there next to pizza which IS the perfect food. Am I right or am I right? Here is a great idea that combines both. Moreover this Brownie Pizza is almost healthy for you. You will be asking your kiddo if they want another slice before their done with the first one! Here`s my little secret...

What you Need:

Box o`Brownie Mix
Apple Sauce (amount will vary depending on oil needed)
1/2 cup Frozen Spinach, thawed and pureed
Whipped Cream (maybe use whipping cream and make the whipped cream yourself!)
Strawberries, sliced


Preheat oven as directed by the Box o`Brownie Mix.

In a large bowl stir together the brownie mix with all ingredients as listed on the Box o`Brownie Mix (substitute the apple sauce for the oil in the recipe) plus the pureed spinach. Seriously, they wont even know the spinach is there!

I then poured half the mix into a spring form pan to create a thin pizza and popped it into the oven. 

You might already be thinking ahead that you can make 2 of these Brownie Pizzas! 
That means an entire one for yourself!

 Once the 'pizza' is completely cooled spread a layer of whipped cream on top. 

Note: I took whipping cream and put it in the mixer to create the whipped cream. There is no added sugar this way which means it is just a little bit better for you. There is enough sweetness in the brownie and fruit to compensate. Just pour the cream in your mixer and mix for several minutes. Once it starts to fluff up keep a close eye on it so you do not over mix it as it will make the whipped cream "stiff."

 Add on the toppings of strawberries and blueberries. 
Even better have your kiddo do the toppings!

For added effect I took last night's pizza box and revamped it for this dessert. Clever, right? 

You might even do this but have your kiddo decorate the pizza box with paints, glitter, jewels, whatever. 

Cut yourself up a nice slice of pie and enjoy!
