Instructions
For the Brownie Pizza
  1. Preheat oven to 350° then prepare brownie mix according to package instructions in a large mixing bowl
  2. Pour brownie batter into a very well greased 10 or 12" round cake pan (I used non-stick baking spray)
  3. Bake for 25 - 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean (NOTE: Baking times will vary based on the exact size of your pan)
  4. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 2 - 3 minutes
  5. Use a butter knife to gently loosen the edges then carefully tip brownie out in one piece onto a cooling rack
  6. Once completely cool, transfer to a cutting board or serving board
  7. Top with a thick layer strawberry buttercream frosting, then add strawberries, blueberries, blackberries and raspberries
  8. Slice and serve immediately. Refrigerate to store in warmer weather
For the Strawberry Buttercream Frosting
  1. Toss chopped strawberries and sugar in a small bowl and set aside and allow strawberries to juice for 1 - 2 hours
  2. Transfer berries and juice to a blender or food processor and blend until smooth
  3. Strain through a sieve (to remove seeds and pulp) into a small saucepan
  4. Heat over medium-high heat and simmer for 15 - 20 minutes, occasionally skimming the foam off the top
  5. Once thick and reduced down by about half, remove from the heat and allow to cool completely
  6. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the softened butter and cream cheese, scraping down the sides of the bowl occasionally
  7. Add the cooled strawberry sauce and vanilla and mix again until well combined and completely smooth
  8. Begin add the sifted confectioner's sugar, ⅓ at a time, mixing well between each addition
  9. Finally, add the flour and mix again, to thicken slightly
