I’m thinking my watermelon addiction is reaching an all time high with this watermelon pizza. Can we call this a salad?
Yes. Yes we can.
Watermelon wedges make the best kind of base for a salad because it feels almost too lazy… which is why I love it! More time eating the salad, less time making the salad.
I think I can leave you to be really imaginative with the toppings, but the key is the squeeze of lime. The combination of the sweet and sour just go so so perfectly together. Otherwise it’s a fair game. Use whatever you have on hand. Even just the watermelon and the lime would be super delicious (and only 2 ingredients!).
After making this (and the devouring it) it got my recipe developing wheels moving - I’m sure you could also make this into a sweet/dessert version with a chocolate or coconut butter glaze… I’m thinking this version is next!
Hope you enjoy every last juicy drop of this summery fruit! Dig in!
