Want to make this Memorial Day weekend even more memorable? Make a watermelon pizza.

First off, ditch the dough and begin with a cool “crust” of juicy watermelon. Cut a round piece of 1-inch-thick and cut into wedges like a pizze. Then pile on the toppings. Whether you like your slices sweet or savory, watermelon provides the perfect foundation for summer’s most refreshing pies. For a mouthwatering savory appetizer at your Memorial Day barbecue, top individual
slices with goat cheese, arugula, prosciutto and drizzles of balsamic glaze. Then pepper to taste. What a fresh and fun way to start the summer season!

If you have the savory department covered, you can go for a naturally sweet dessert pie, instead.

Create the same melon “crust” with your slices then gather your toppings: shredded coconut, chopped mint, mixed fresh berries, greek yogurt and slivered almonds.

First, spread the yogurt to cover the fruit of the melon, leaving enough room to hold the rind as you eat. Then, get creative with your toppings. You can put them all on yourself, or create a topping bar for your guests to mix, match and enjoy.
