Grilled Watermelon Pizza with Blueberries, Parmesan and Arugula

Grilled Watermelon Pizza

Refreshing and sweet, Grilled Watermelon Pizza with Blueberries, Parmesan and Arugula is a fun twist on the traditional pizza pie. Simple to make, this is a summertime must have for every party this season.

This Grilled Watermelon Pizza is the perfect light lunch or a great way to kick off a summer barbecue as a healthy appetizer. I just eat the whole pizza myself as my dinner some nights….and I don’t even feel bad about it. And really…why should I? It’s fruit, it’s healthy and it’s summer. Oh….and it only takes about 10 minutes to make from start to finish. Now….go make it!

Ingredients

  • 1 thick slice watermelon (1½-inches thick)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cups baby arugula
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup shaved Parmesan cheese

Preparation

  • Preheat grill.
  • Brush both sides of the watermelon slice with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Place the watermelon slice, cut side down on the grill grates and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Flip the slice over and grill for an additional 2 minutes.
  • Transfer the watermelon to a platter and cut into 6 wedges. Top with the arugula, blueberries, tomatoes and parmesan. Drizzle with the remaining olive oil. Serve immediately.

What an idea !

I’ve had grilled watermelon in a salad type dish but never “pizza”.

Definitely on the ‘going to try” list !
