Brie and Cranberry Pizza

Recipe by  

"I love baked Brie. This is an easy and delicious way to prepare it. Any kind of jam may be used in place of cranberry sauce (I like raspberry). I have been told by many that they'd like to make a meal out of it."

I had to review this recipe. I've had it in my recipe book forever and I finally made it for bridal shower. I read some of the reviews and I think some people are not making this quite right. First I took the idea from the recipe to make it in a 9/13 inch pan. The refridgerator crescent rolls fit perfectly into the bottom of the pan. I cut the brie into little pieces and sprinkled it over the crust. Then I stirred up the cranberry sauce and dropped it in little dollops. I only used the 3/4 of a cup that was called for which is about 1/2 the can. Then topped with the pecans. It seems like other people smeared the jam all across it as you would pizza sauce. This really isn't like a pizza. It's little bar like appetizers. They are wonderful. Don't overdo the toppings. It was the first thing to be completely eaten at the shower. I will definitely be making it again. The picture posted is nothing like what I made. It looks like they used pizza crust. Mine was visually appealing and tasty. I think the people who complained about it running overloaded the pizza with too much jam. I just wanted to update this by saying I've made this for so many events over the years and always get requests for it. It is always the first thing to be eaten. Sometimes men need convincing to try it, but once they have you can't keep them away. Thanks for an excellent, easy recipe that I've used over and over.

This was just okay. I served this at a baby shower and no one seemed too impressed with it, myself included.

I used jellied cranberry sauce instead of whole because that was all that I had. I think next time I will make the effort to get the whole variety or try raspberry preserves instead. The sauce didn't melt and looked clumpy. I would also add more pecans. My husband liked this more than me and has had three pieces tonight. The tart taste of the cranberry sauce cut through the thick creaminess of the brie quite nicely.

Loved this (a second one is coming out of the oven momentarily). It's a less-greasy alternative to baked brie, and very quick. I used a 10" springform pan, which worked perfectly to open up and slide the pizza onto a cutting board. Spiced up the cranberry sauce with a little cayenne and balsamic vinegar reduction (a splash of the vinegar would work fine). Try to get the softest (smushiest in the center) brie you can find, don't cut off the crust, and don't overload with ingredients to keep it crisp. A yummy, easy appetizer.

This is SO quick and easy. Your guests will love this colorful pizza that is perfect for as an appetizer or a meal of itself! Add a nice tossed salad with a sweet vinagrette dressing for a wonderful luncheon.

My children absolutely loved this! What a fabulous combo. of flavors! Following other reviewers, I cooked the crust a bit longer before topping with the ingredients. I only left the pizza in long enough to melt the cheese thoroughly. We had Lambrusco and a salad to complete the meal. It was FABULOUS! Thanks so much!
