Mini brownie fruit pizza bites put a sweet twist on a savory favorite

Friday night always means pizza night in my house. Now, I know that usually when you hear "pizza night," you think cheese, pepperoni and sauce, but not anymore. Now when you hear "pizza," you can think dessert.

I know what you're thinking — dessert pizza? Trust me, it's amazing. And it's great for parties (cough cough, Memorial Day) and can be customized to use just about any fruit you have lying around the house. I used blueberries, strawberries and mint because it was what I had. However, mango, pineapple or raspberries would all be delicious toppings too.
