Although the recipe calls for specific amounts and ingredients that go nicely together, the truth is it's highly flexible, and you can easily omit, swap or add your favorite fruits and ingredients. To make a great party snack, try shaved fennel, minced parsley, black pepper, sea salt and a drizzle of olive oil. You can also add cheeses. They go surprisingly well with watermelon!

Serves 4


  • 1 medium, seedless watermelon
  • 1/2 cup macadamia nuts, chopped
  • 1/4 cup dried goji berries
  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries, halved
  • 2 kiwis, peeled and sliced thin
  • Handful fresh mint leaves, minced (optional)
  • Handful edible flower petals (optional)


    Use the widest part of the watermelon to cut four 1-inch-thick rounds. Each round will form the base of a "pizza." Decorate each round with the fruit, nut and garnish toppings you like best. Use a chef's knife (adults only, please!) to cut each "pizza" into 8 wedges. Serve immediately. Watermelon Pizza will keep up to one day, covered and refrigerated.
