For the brownie crust:
2 1/2cupsgranulated sugar
1 1/2cupsall-purpose flour
1cupunsweetened cocoa powder
For the “sauce”:
1 8ozpkg chocolate cream cheeseor sub plain, and just add sugar if needed to sweeten
For the glaze:
About 1/2 cups sliced strawberries
About 1/2 cup blueberries
About 1 cup raspberries
1/2cupchopped chocolate or chocolate chips
For the crust:Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and grease a 14-16” pizza pan or line with parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl, combine butter and sugar with a whisk until smooth, 1-2 minutes. Add vanilla and eggs and whisk until smooth.
Add flour, cocoa powder and salt and stir just until smooth. (batter will be somewhat thick)
Spread a thin layer of brownie batter on the bottom of the pan (I used a 16” pan and made about a 13” circle – it will expand somewhat). You should have about ½” of brownie batter on the pan. Spread remaining batter into an 8x8” pan and bake alongside.
Bake for 15-20 minutes, until set and a toothpick comes out clean or with moist crumbs. Cool completely (can be made ahead and frozen).
For the “sauce”:With an electric mixer, beat cream cheese and Nutella until smooth.
For the glaze:In a small pot, combine water, corn starch and sugar with a whisk. Heat over medium heat, whisking, until sugar and corn starch are dissolved. Stir in jam, and continue cooking and whisking until thickened. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
To assemble:Spread “sauce” over brownie crust. Layer with strawberries, raspberries and blueberries. Brush berries with glaze.
Melt together chocolate and milk in a small pot on low heat. Drizzle over finished pizza.
Store in the refrigerator, uncovered, up to a few hours. To store longer than that, I recommend freezing the crust (with the sauce on it if you desire), then thawing and topping before serving.
