Watermelon Pizza Recipe

Jun 4, 2015

The warm weather has finally arrived and I couldn’t be happier.

Warmer weather means more outside play time and that means kids who are hungry for cool and refreshing snacks.

This watermelon pizza is a fantastic snack that can be assembled in minutes. The kids (and adults too!) are going to love it.

What You’ll Need:

  • 1 whole slice from a fresh watermelon
  • a variety of fresh fruits of your choice — I used banana, blueberries, kiwi and peaches
  • sweetened, shredded coconut

A slice of watermelon and other assorted fruits.

How To Make It:

1. Using a knife, slice your piece of watermelon into six slices, like a pizza.

2. Slice up some fresh fruits of your choice and assemble the pieces over the top of your watermelon, like pizza toppings. 

Fruits arranged on top of a round slice of watermelon to look like a pizza.

3. Sprinkle sweetened, shredded coconut over the top of the pizza. Serve immediately or refrigerate until needed.

The kids won't be able to resist this cool and refreshing (and did my mention healthy?!) snack.

It’s so delicious and so easy to make, you’ll be making it all summer long. Enjoy!
