Watermelon Pizza – try a slice!

Watermelon Pizza

Sometimes when craving dessert and there’s no chocolate in the house you do the next best thing – create something with whatever you have on hand.  This Watermelon Pizza fit the bill. 

What better to have in the house on a hot blistery & humid day than iced cold watermelon?  When I was trying to come up with a dessert the other evening since my sweet tooth was going crazy, I remembered I had placed a whole watermelon in the refrigerator to chill.  Having the urge to be creative I decided to doctor up the watermelon a bit with fresh berries, vanilla Greek yogurt, and a sprinkling of coconut – an idea I spotted on Pinterest.

The result: Much more refreshing and satisfying than any piece of chocolate I could have had, and better for me!

Of course, you could cut up the watermelon into chunks, and by using the same ingredients, layer them in a jar or glass.  However, I think slicing a round of watermelon, and then slicing it into so called “pizza slices” then adding toppings, is much more fun and festive.

Too bad I didn’t come up with this for the 4th of July, it would have been ideal!  Either way this Watermelon Pizza is a delightful treat! Have it for breakfast, at lunchtime, for an afternoon snack or dessert – it hits the spot anytime of day!
