  1. I read recently that cookbooks that are put out by individual groups for fund raisers — like garden clubs, humane societies, etc., capture a bit of our culinary history like a snapshot in time. This recipe reminds me of that. I used to see this fruit pizza at almost every garden club meeting and it has slowly gone by the wayside. Looks like perhaps your younger generation is now picking up on it and enjoying it like we did.

  2. Yes. This is a huge party favorite and my friends love to make it! I had never even heard of it until I got to college.

  3. In the past, at least a decade ago I made the fruit pizza but used Boboli as the frame work. I wonder if Boboli crust is still around? I haven’t thought of it or looked for it for awhile. I just did a search and yes, it’s still around and at a grocery store near me.

    I rarely go in the traditional grocery store.

    Maybe I’ll make a fruit pizza a la Boboli for our next Beading Bracelet Bee.
