Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Place pie crust dough on a pizza baking sheet.
  3. Press down firmly and stretch so that the crust laps a touch over the edge will shrink slightly.
  4. Bake until slightly golden.
  5. Remove from oven and let cool.
  6. Meanwhile, by hand, mix milk, 1/4 cup lemon juice and vanilla together in bowl.
  7. Chill.
  8. Slice bananas and toss in remaining one teaspoon lemon juice so they don't turn brown on the pie.
  9. Pour off excess lemon juice and set bananas aside.
  10. Spread chilled milk mixture on cooled crust, leaving empty a 1/2 inch space from the edge (to look like a pizza).
  11. Decorate the pie with banana slices, pineapple chunks, pecans and cherries.
  12. Warm Hot Fudge Sauce and drizzle on top.
  13. If you like, you can take a can of whipped cream and create slices.
