Report Story

Who says all pizzas should be made with a crust, cheese, and tomato sauce?

When people hear the word "pizza," it is natural for them to think of the round dough topped with tomatoes, cheese, and often various other ingredients, such as pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, onions, olives, vegetables, and other toppings. Here is another type of pizza that is sure to please.

Watermelon Dessert Pizza

Unlike other pizzas, the watermelon dessert pizza doesn't have to be baked in a hot oven. Not only is the pizza delicious, but it is quick, easy, and convenient to make. It is also beautiful and will make a big hit at any cookout, picnic, or other gatherings. Children and adults love the refreshing dessert pizza.

All the ingredients make the watermelon dessert pizza healthy. It is hydrating and packed with antioxidants with many benefits. The ingredients produce brain power as well as give the consumer's skin a nice glow.

Cook Time

There is no cook time for any of the watermelon pizza dessert recipes. The pizzas are quick to make because they don't have to be cooked.

Ingredients

These ingredients are for the watermelon pizza shown above.

  • 1 round watermelon slice, 1-inch thick
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons toasted pecans, roughly chopped
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons toasted shredded or flaked coconut
  • 2 heaping tablespoons low-fat vanilla yogurt
  • ¼ cup fresh raspberries
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons fresh blueberries
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons mini semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon torn fresh mint or basil leaves, optional

Preparation

The preparation time for all of these recipes is about 10 minutes or less. Place a watermelon on its side. Use a sharp knife to cut off an inch from each end so the flesh is exposed. Then carefully cut 1-inch thick round slices along the length of the watermelon. Quarter each of the large rounds and assemble them as circular pizza pies on plates. Some people love thin slices. So, be careful how thick you leave the rounds. The round shown in the photo above is thick. The round shown in the photo below is thin.

Use a spatula to spread vanilla yogurt on top of the watermelon. Put on dark chocolate chips. Sprinkle on fiber-filled berries, nuts, basil, or mint. Cut into slices just as you do with other pizzas.
