A Reinvention of Cold Pizza
If you've ever looked at a wedge of watermelon and thought it looked like a pizza slice, chef Julie Morris is right there with you. In her new book, Superfood Snacks
, she turns inch-thick rounds of the melon into pies, and decorates them with toppings such as chopped macadamia nuts, halved blueberries, thin slices of kiwi and minced mint leaves (though you can use anything from shaved fennel to black pepper and sea salt). She cuts the "pizza" into wedges and serves it chilled for one of the most fun (and healthy) twists on the beloved favorite that we've ever seen.
