Hot and heavy? Not this summer. When making pizza, ditch the dough and begin with a cool “crust” of juicy watermelon. Then pile on the toppings. Whether you like your slices sweet or savory, watermelon provides the perfect foundation for summer’s most refreshing pies.

Cut a round piece of watermelon 1-inch-thick and cut into wedges like a pizza.


Toppings: Shredded coconut, chopped mint, mixed fresh berries, Greek yogurt, slivered almonds

Spread yogurt to cover watermelon, leaving room to hold the rind. Sprinkle watermelon slices with toppings as desired.


Top watermelon slices with goat cheese, arugula, prosciutto and drizzles of balsamic glaze. Pepper to taste.
