Recursive function Sum of elements of array

Write a recursive function that computes and returns the sum of all elements in an array, where the array will be created dynamically by getting the size from the user. Array and its size are given as parameters.
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int sum(int array[], int size);

int main()
cout << "Size of Array: "; int size; cin >> size;
int *array = new int [size];

//Inputing array.
cout << "Enter elements of array followed by spaces: ";
for (int i = 0; i<size; i++)
cin>>*(array+i); //Or cin>>array[i];

cout << "Sum of elements of array: " << sum(array,size) << endl;

return 0;

int sum(int array[], int counter)
if (counter == 1)
return array[0];
return array[0] + sum(array+1,counter-1);
