Mix brownie according to box directions. Pre-heat oven to 375. Use parchment paper, spread brownie mix to about an inch of the edge of the parchment paper. Bake 15-18 minutes, cool completely.
***I have been baking the brownie at my house and then brining it to my hosts house, that way it is almost cool. I have covered it with cling wrap and sometimes a little bit of the top sticks but thats okay your adding toppings. Mine also baked over the pp tonight so I just took the paring knife and 'trimmed it' - use the line 'Pampered - Not perfect!'
Mix together one pkg cream cheese (softened) on can (I think 8oz.) of crushed pineapple (drained) and 2 Tblspn sugar. Spread mixture over pizza (brownie) crust.
***If you are using a pineapple can that has the pop top - open the BOTTOM of the can with the can opener - two reasons - it shows off the can opener and if you pop the top you cannot us the can strainer to 'smush' the juice out of the can, there is a little lip on the inside that the can strainer will not fit into. Also, after spreading on the cc mixture cut your slices with the pizza cutter BEFORE you add your toppings - makes a much cleaner cut and you don't have to worry about 'mushing' your strawberries or bananas.
Use egg slicer plus to slice bananas and strawberries - add to top of pizza. Drizzle with chocolate syrup. Chop or grate nuts over top.
***I usually use the Hershey's bottle but I think you can use the v-shaped cutter with melted chocolate?? If you have the micro plane adjustable grater you could use that for the nuts too.
Good Luck!! I have made this at my last 4 shows - it's always a hit!
