It’s another hot one here and I am looking to make no bake, easy, healthy recipes and today I have a good one for you. It’s my Mediterranean Watermelon Pizza. It’s sweet, savory and really has a nice Greek flavor. When I took a bite, I knew I had to share it with you. It is out of this world good.
This pizza is also so easy to make. It took the longest cutting the watermelon. I just love watermelon. I picked this Irish Watermelon from Target. It’s nice and round and of course I didn’t cut it straight. I am so horrible at making a straight cut. Also, it is best to use a seedless watermelon for the recipe.
The first thing I did was cut the watermelon in half, then cut into a 1 1/2″ thick slice. To look like a pizza. I than cut the pizza into 4 slices. Top the pizza with feta cheese, and thinly sliced red onion.
The last toppings is a little bit of Balsamic Glaze and fresh chopped parsley. It not only tastes good, but it is so pretty too. For the balsamic glaze, I used Trader Joe’s brand, but you could make your own.
Such a lovely, simple dish that is perfect for serving at parties. It will pleasantly surprise everyone. Watermelon is good on its own, but add a few friends and you have a party.
You can serve this on a pretty platter, or have the ingredients on their own, so people can top there pizza with the ingredients. The combination is sweet from the watermelon, and the feta cheese adds a nice salty flavor and the onions add a crunch and the savory taste. Of course the balsamic glaze just brings it all together with a tart flavor.
I am not one for eating raw onions, but I have to admit, they are simply perfect on watermelon. A little bit goes a long way.
