Yep, I put watermelon on your pizza……..?
Totally just kidding, I just turned your watermelon into a sweet, fruity, colorful array of deliciousness! Also, here I am again sharing a “recipe” that’s hardly a recipe, but I’m super excited about it.
The first day of the Summer definitely came in strong. The last few days have been nice and warm and I’m loving it! With that, I’ve been gearing up and making all the fresh stuff to keep things cool, starting with this watermelon pizza. So in my house watermelons are a huge staple this time of year and I typically just cube them up to eat.
I got this last batch of melons and I just wanted to try something new. I went to the pantry and the fridge and just started grabbing all the goods and topping the slices with whatever sounded good and then I realized how good pb&j would be.
As with so many of the recipes I share, this is extremely versatile. You can top it with all types of jams, jellies, or nut butters. Actually, I was going to add some almond milk yogurt until I realized I was out, but yogurt would be really good too. Oh, and the jam I used was a blueberry chia jam that I’ve been testing recently. I’ve almost got the recipe how I want it so I’ll be sharing it soon, but it’s not quite there yet.
Anyway, I think this could be an epic addition to your next Summer gathering, barbecue, or kid’s birthday party. Oh, or you could set up a colorful toppings bar and set up a build-your-own watermelon pizza event. The point is that this is a super easy treat or snack to have. I’d honestly just eat this for breakfast because, like who doesn’t want something this fun to start the day????
Did someone say pizza? Yep, this fruity creation can be customized to please all your sweet dreams.
