Watermelon Pizza

Mid-August heat means that it's way too hot to turn on the oven and make traditional pizza, so give this fun fruit version a try! Watermelon pizza is a great way to make sure your kiddos stay cool and hydrated as watermelon is packed with water and good nutrients. They will also have the best time getting super creative with their pizzas. At Tiny Turnips Kitchen, our mini chefs used cookie cutters on the watermelon rounds to punch out shapes like stars and hearts and add to the pizza as toppers. Don't forget to sprinkle on some sweet garnishes like chocolate chips and coconut flakes. This perfect summer dessert is easy, healthy, and most importantly fun! 


Watermelon Pizza

  • Prep time: 15 mins
  • Serves: 4-6


  • 1 watermelon, each round cut into 1'' thick pieces

  • 1 cup greek yogurt or your favorite non dairy yogurt

  • 2 tablespoons honey

  • 1/2 cup of blueberries

  • ½ cup raspberries

  • ½ cup white currents (if at the market)

  • 1 cup of strawberries slices in half

  • 1 cup kiwi, sliced

  • Mint leaves

  • ¼ cup unsweetened coconut flakes



  1. The watermelon will work as the “crust” for the pizza. Slice into 1 inch rounds and lay flat.

  2. Mix the honey and yogurt together in a small bowl and spread on watermelon as the pizza "sauce." Leave room for the rind to show. 

  3. Sprinkle fruit, coconut, and mint toppings!

  4. Using a sharp knife, divide the round into 4-6 pizza slices.
