Chocolate Pizza

Servings: 8-10
I think this would be something a little different to serve at a children's birthday party. The kids will love it! Also, you can make this for a special treat to bring to a kids and parents school occasion. Make 2 or 3 Chocolate Pizza's, as they are quick and easy to make.

1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup butter flavor crisco shortening
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
