Red White and Blue Brownie Pizza
from Jo Cooks
- 1 box brownie mix I used Betty Crocker Chocolate Chunk Brownie mix
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil
- 1 egg
Preheat oven to 350 F degrees. Prepare a pizza pan or a large cookie sheet with parchment paper.
In your mixer add all the brownie ingredients and and mix just until everything is well blended. Spread the brownie mix over the parchment paper to form a circle that’s about 14 inches in diameter. Bake for 20 minutes. Let it cool completely.
In your mixer add the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla extract and mix well until smooth.
Using a spatula spread the cream cheese mixture evenly over the brownie crust.
Arrange berries over the cream cheese mixture.
Slice and serve. Refrigerate leftovers.
