This watermelon pizza is so good, and so perfect for your Fourth of July festivities. It was husband and kid-approved, which actually means a lot in our house hold because everyone is picky. The watermelon salad is also super, super simple! The hardest part is cutting up the watermelon. I really don’t like to cut watermelon up. It is just hard and messy.
The other wonderful thing about this watermelon pizza is that it is super healthy!! Literally all super foods, full of amazing ingredients to have you feeling light and fresh on your holiday. Watermelon is full of water, which will help you flush out any of the extra calories, sugar or alcohol that may or may not be consumed underneath the fireworks.
Let’s get into how to create this magic, which doesn’t take much at all:
Here’s what you need:
1 watermelon (small or medium) makes 5-6 pizzas depending on how thick you cut your rounds
1 carton of blueberries (slice in half)
1 bag of grapes (you’ll have left over grapes) and slice in half
1 package of strawberries cut into small pieces
1-2 cups of walnuts (i bought a package in the baking aisle) and crumbled with my hands to make smaller pieces
1 package of crumbled goat cheese
Your favorite bottle of balsamic glaze. I don’t have a favorite, so I grab what is on sale.
Now, if you are l like me, you can eat a whole “pizza” easily. If you are serving to guests, cutting it up into triangle slices at the end works really well. Start by cutting your watermelon into rounds. The thinner they are, the cuter and easier to cut into pieces. I am not great at watermelon cutting.
Once you have your rounds cut, add blueberries, grapes and strawberries to the round. Then sprinkle your goat cheese on top. It will be like a red, white and blue salad.
Then, add your walnuts and drizzle with your balsamic glaze. That is literally all you have to do!! Pile on the toppings because they fall off easy.
Once you have your toppings on, you can slice it up for serving. Guests or party-goers can easily grab a slice with one hand and eat too, which makes it socializing-friendly!
