Watermelon Pizza Dessert
Hey, guys! I’m Jessi, from Practically Functional, a creative lifestyle blog for busy moms, and I’m so excited to share one of my favorite summer recipes with you today! Eating watermelon is one of my favorite things about summer; they’re so juicy and delicious, and it just makes me feel like summer has arrived! Anyone else love watermelon? If you do, you’re going to love today’s fruit pizza recipe: Watermelon fruit pizza! It’s a quick and easy snack to make, plus it’s pretty healthy since it’s all fruit and yogurt!
Watermelon Fruit Pizza Ingredients
Here’s what you need:
- whole watermelon
- plain yogurt (or flavored or sweetened)
- a variety of fruits cut up into small chunks
- a very sharp knife
- a big serving platter
Start by cutting your watermelon into 1” thick slabs. Each slice will be its own “pizza”.
Lay the slice of watermelon down on a serving platter and cut it into six pieces, like a pizza.
Cover the slice of watermelon with yogurt, leaving about half an inch near the rind uncovered to be the “crust”.
Cut up your favorite fruits into small chunks. Any kind of fruit will work, just pick whatever you like best!
For our pizza, I chose kiwis, strawberries, apricots, and blackberries.
Sprinkle your fruit toppings onto the yogurt.
If you want your pizza to be a bit sweeter, add a drizzle of honey.
Watermelon pizza is such a delicious summertime dessert or snack; your kids will love it!
P.S. If you want an amazing summertime dessert that’s a little sweeter, check out this summer peach blueberry trifle or these cherry limeade popsicles. They’re both quick and easy to make, totally delicious, and great for a crowd!
It’s also the perfect snack to bring for a summer picnic or potluck because it’s quick to make, and you can let your family and friends make their own watermelon pizza with any toppings they want!
- One whole watermelon, cut into 1” thick round slices
