Let’s all collectively unbutton our pants, because that is exactly how you are going to feel by the end of this.

Brownie Pizza. It is really as mouth-watering and cellulite-causing as it sounds.
I like my regular pizza in triangle slices. I like my dessert pizza in square slices. It makes more and serves more. A win-win situation in my eyes.
Rarely is a dessert too sweet or too rich for my liking. I could eat sweets for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I sometimes do. I can eat spoonful after spoonful of thick chocolate cake with frosting so sweet that it hurts your teeth.
Nothing phases me. Nothing, I tell you.
This may have almost phased me.
It is that rich and decadent. Delicious doesn’t even begin to describe it.
As I did with the fruit pizza, the layer of cream cheese was going to simply be a mix of cream cheese and whipped topping. Light and fluffy.
But then I thought of something dangerous.
I could picture the full container of cream cheese frosting that I had in the freezer, leftover from making red velvet cupcakes last weekend.
Dare I do it? Dare I add more butter, more sugar, more thigh-plumping goodness?
Yes. Yes, of course I do.
And that is when I lost my mind.
I took the remaining cream cheese frosting and used it as the first layer.
If there was ever a sin so sinful in dessert making, this would be it.
inspired/adapted from Paula Deen
1 box brownie mix
1 cup sliced strawberries
1 banana, sliced
1/2 cup toasted coconut
caramel sauce, for drizzling
12 fun-sized candy bars, chopped (I used Snickers)
1-2 cups cream cheese frosting
Preheat oven to 350.
Prepare brownie mix per directions. Spread batter either on a round pizza pan, or a square baking sheet. Bake for approximately 15 minutes, or until brownie is baked through. Let cool completely – I stuck mine in the fridge.
Spread cream cheese frosting (or whichever mixture you choose) on brownie in a thin layer. Add toppings and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes before serving.
I took the brownie pizza to a party Friday night.
Really, I just wanted to keep the entire thing to myself, but I wanted Mr. How Sweet to be able to fit his arms around me the next day.
I did keep a row at home for us, mainly because it would not fit aesthetically on the tray I took to the party.
I was pulling said row out Saturday morning, fully intent on eating the entire thing for breakfast, when I shattered the light bulb in our refrigerator. Broken glass splattered all over my brownie pizza, sticking to the frosting like glue.
I seriously contemplated still eating it, focusing more on the chewy brownie and gooey frosting than the shards of glass that would cut my throat.
I am telling you – it was an omen.
My pants are screaming. They had enough brownie pizza.

“Let’s all collectively unbutton our pants”… you are always such a lady.
I’m gaining weight just looking at these pictures! I can’t WAIT to try these!
I think you should start a clothing company, so that when we all out grow our clothes from making your delicious recipes, you can then make money selling us clothes in bigger sizes. =)
That dessert sure does look sinful and addictive! But delicious!
I see you don’t like vegetables and wanted to give you a few helpful tips, but I’m sure you already know. Have you tried a green smoothie? With spinach, you can’t taste it. You could get your whole days worth of produce in one smoothie. Also, I didn’t use to like vegetables until I was forced to eat them every day, several times a day (for a food sensitivity diet). I started out having steamed veggies with a drizzle of quality olive oil and salt, have you tried it? Broccoli, asparagus, peas, green beans, they are all good this way. Now vegetables are sometimes 90% of my diet. Steamed cabbage is my new favorite and baked sweet potatoes.
The smoothie changed my life, I highly recommend it.
I also see that you were a personal trainer and I’m wondering what your job is now? I’m young and still trying to decide what career to pursue and being a personal trainer is one of my interests, so I’m really curious. Thanks!
oh my gosh. next family get together (4th of july?), I am making this! I can’t make it just for me and mike, it’s too dangerous. i want to eat it now!
OMG the light bulb fell in! I would have cried. Lucky party go-ers, though:)
This looks awesome–totally reminds me of my mom’s veggie pizza recipe. Except way better ;)
that looks off the chain girl omg.
and yeah, id love to come stay w/ you during my move…except all hell would break loose and it would never happen. a woman MUST be in charge of these things :)
Oh my *expletive*! AMAZING! What a creative and amazing idea. I go over the top with my food all the time. All of those layers — who needs vegetables?!
OH my word that looks heavenly!
Oh no you didn’t!!!!! Decadent doesn’t even begin to describe that masterpiece!!
I think if I brought this into work everyone would love me and hate me at the same time. This looks incredible!
What a great way to make sinful brownies even MORE sinful! But the strawberries and banana very clearly balance out any sinfulness. Clever. Very clever.
Oh, MY GOD! Are you kidding me with this? My pant would be screaming, too, but totally worth it.
That’s SINFULLY GOOD, oh my.
How cute! This reminds me of when I was in elementary school and instead of bringing in a cake on my birthday, I brought in rice krispy pizza with candy toppings inside of a real pizza box!
how in the hell do you come up with this stuff
these bars look so freaking delicous! strawberry AND coconut!? mmmm
Oh dear lord, that looks delicious. I want to make this soooo bad, so I’ve gotta wait until I have a party or something to go to, because I know otherwise it would be ALL MINE. Om nom.
GIRL!!!! You have outdone yourself with this brownie pizza!!! This looks incredible, but unless I could only make a single serving, I know I’d eat the whole thing or make myself very, very sick trying… Beautiful, beautiful desert!!!! You are truly, truly gifted!!!!
now that is my kind of pizza!
Seriously, that is ridiculous. Can’t WAIT to try it :)
Holy moley that looks intensely decadent! It’s like cookies and candy and brownies all rolled into one, plus fruit. Dang, was there any sweet that recipe didn’t hit? I mean, serve it with a scoop of ice cream and BAM!
I would sell one of my kidneys for a slice of your brownie pizza. Oh.My.
Perhaps i should suggest this for my sweets loving friend for girls night in. What’s another five lbs right?
Oh my… Looks amazing.
I have to tell you, every time I read your site I always think to myself “She’s a personal trainer, so this can’t be THAT unhealthy, right?” I’ll keep telling myself that.

This looks so freakin amazing and my pants are tight just looking at the picture, but I must try it :)
Pass me a slice please – this is the best looking pizza I have seen in a long time!
I made this for my dad for father’s day!!!! TURNED OUT BETTER THAN EXPECTED!!!!! Sooooooooo gooooooood!! :D
I can’t believe you made the sinful brownies into just a vehicle to carry so much awesome goodness!
What a great idea! Can’t wait to try this!
Brownie Pizza — the best pizza out there!
I’m angry with you for posting this. That means I eat them and that means they are so good that my life will never be the same and every thing I eat henceforth will pale in comparison.
But seriously. It was like eating magic.
I thought I’d let you know that since the last comment I made, I’ve made this three more times. I’ve never had so many compliments in my whole life. People keep saying it’s the best brownie they’ve ever eaten. And I even got a death threat from someone if I didn’t make more. You’re quite the brownie mastermind.

You have an outstanding website, great recipes, and I love reading your stories. I hesitate to say this, because some people don’t want to know if they’ve used a word incorrectly or spelled one wrong, but some people want to know, so I’ll take a chance here:
The word you wanted was “faze” and “fazed” and “fazes” not phase and it’s variations. If I have offended you, please forgive me, that was never my intention. And please feel free to delete this message or not post it. Best to you, Diane
I’ve been looking for this recipe for years! I remember reading this back in the day but couldn’t remember what it was called. This is a classic. LOVE THE BLOG!!!
