Directions:
Mix butter, sugar and egg well. Blend in dry ingredients and
nuts. Press into greased pizza pan. Bake 10-12 minutes at
400 oven. Let cool.

Mix 8 oz. package of cream cheese, 1/2 cup sugar, 2
tablespoons reserved juice from cans of fruit. Spread over
cold crust.

Drain large can of pineapple chunks and can of mandarin
oranges. Save juice. Pile pineapple chunks, oranges, fresh
strawberries, blueberries, kiwi or whatever you desire on top.

Mix 2 tablespoons cornstarch with 1/3 cup sugar and 1 cup
reserved juice. Cook until thick. Drizzle over fruit.
Refrigerate. To serve, slice like pizza.

NOTES: This is best made the day you plan on serving. The
crust may get soggy after a day or two. A 12 inch pan will
make a thick crust ( A larger pan would probably be better).
Grease hands to press down dough easily.
