Cherry Pizza Dessert - Red, White, and Blue

I found this recipe in the Charleston Gazette back in 1981. I have enjoyed making it for many years. For a cookout today I am making this as well as Blueberry Crunch Pie (part Cherry for Mr. Redding). If you are interested you can find the Blueberry Crunch Pie Recipe in an August 2009 Redding Mountain post.

To put together cherry pizza spoon filling on cooled crust and top with cherry pie filling and sprinkle with nuts. Refrigerate until set and cut and serve.
