HOW TO MAKE WATERMELON FRUIT PIZZA
It is super easy to make this refreshing, healthy summer dessert. Get a nice round mini seedless watermelon. The bigger the watermelon, the bigger the pizza wedges.
Cut the watermelon into slices (about 1 inch thick), then cut each slice into wedges. This will be the pizza crust. I cut mine into quarters, the choice is yours. This will be your watermelon pizza crust.
Now comes the fun part, the pizza toppings. Let your imagination create the most delicious watermelon pizza you this summer. The combinations are endless.
WATERMELON PIZZA TOPPINGS
For this watermelon pizza dessert, I used mascarpone cheese, sliced strawberries, strawberry balsamic glaze and fresh mint. Honestly, there are so many choices. You can even set up a “make your own” fruit pizza station. How fun would that be?
Topping ideas include (but not limited to):
- soft spreadable cheeses (cream cheese, ricotta, mascarpone)
- Greek yogurt
- feta cheese
- fruits of all kind (berries, pineapple, mango, apples, pears)
- *balsamic reduction/glazes
- fresh herbs (basil, mint)
- *jams/jellies (things like jalapeno/strawberry preserves or wine jellies)
- nuts/seeds (almonds, walnuts, pumpkin seeds)
- chocolate chips (just because you can)
