Summer is the time for fun & treats but they don’t always have to be unhealthy! This Watermelon Pizza really hits the spot on a warm evening. The fruit is in it’s prime and the whole family can get in on the fun creating their perfect combinations. Watermelon also has special antioxidants in its red pigment that help the skin in the hot summer sun.

  • Decorate with any fruit you like.
  • Sprinkle with lemon zest for a finishing touch
  • Slice into wedges and serve right away.
