Themed Fruit Pizzas
Although the fruit pizzas above were not prepared by myself, they give you an idea of how decorative this dessert can appear.
If you have a themed event, you might try arranging the fruit in the shape of a motif, symbol or numbers for a birthday or anniversary. Perhaps even your national flag.
I have seen those decorated to resemble Old Glory, the American flag, something very appropriate for the Fourth of July celebrations.
As a Brit, I also noticed that some clever soul had arranged the fruit to appear like the Union Jack. The flag idea may be a little more time consuming, but the end result does look stunning.
It seems that whatever occasion you are planning, the themes and ideas for this fruit pizza are endless.
