Watermelon Pizza = A Perfect Labor Day Recipe

Rebecca Weingold

I ADORE watermelon and I adore pizza, so what could be better than a watermelon pizza. And, there isn’t anything yummier than to end the summer with a watermelon dish. This year for Labor Day I am going to a friends pool party. Everyone has been tasked with bringing a dish and a towel!

I began my hunt for what I wanted to make. I loved what I made on the Fourth of July, but wanted to do something different, and then I came across this Watermelon Pizza! It looked so good!

Mind you, this is a recipe for 4 and there were about 20 at this party, so I made a LOT of watermelon pizza!

Watermelon Pizza

Ingredients

  • For Almond Feta:
  • 1/2 cup whole almonds
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 Tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 small clove garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoons water
  • For Pizza:
  • 1 medium watermelon
  • 5 mint leaves
  • 1/3 cup blueberries
  • 1 1/2 teapoons balsamic glaze

Directions

  1. Make Almond Feta: Combine all ingredients in a food processor. Blend until smooth. Cover and refrigerate until firm, at least 2 hours.
  2. Make pizza: Cut watermelon in half. Lay the flat sides down on a cutting board. Starting at the widest part, cut a 1-inch slice across both halves. Divide each piece into 4 slices.
  3. Place watermelon slices on a large plate or round serving dish. Top with mint leaves
  4. Measure 1 ounce of almond feta (store leftovers covered in the fridge for another use). Sprinkle over watermelon. Scatter blueberries over watermelon and drizzle “pizza” with balsamic glaze.
