Notes

Any colourful fruit can be used as a ‘pizza topping’, although fruit that browns when cut, such as apples, pears and bananas, should not be used unless the pizza is served immediately. The pizza can be assembled up to 3 hours ahead, store in the refrigerator. Serve with pineapple ‘chips’ (fries); simply cut slices of fresh pineapple into chip shapes, about 1cm thick.
