Watermelon Pizza by Jodie Fitz

8 oz. PICS whipping cream

¼ cup PICS confectioner’s sugar

1 teaspoon PICS vanilla extract

Watermelon

6 oz. PICS Greek vanilla yogurt

½ cup fresh strawberries

Fresh fruits (see below)

Prepare the whipped topping by adding the 8 oz. of heavy cream, the ¼ cup of confectioner’s sugar and 1 teaspoon of vanilla into a bowl.  Whip it with an electric mixer until it reaches a stiff peak.

Layer 1

Cut one large round slice out of the center of a whole watermelon.  This will serve as your dough for your watermelon pizza.  Place it on a flat surface.

Layer 2:

Rinse, hull and slice the ½ cup of strawberries.  Place the sliced strawberries into a mini chopper, food processor or blender.  Fold the strawberries and a third of the whipped cream into the Greek yogurt.  Spread the mixture onto the watermelon circle.

Layer 3:

Spread the remaining whipped cream on top.

Pizza Toppings:  Rinse and prep your favorite fruit to go on top.  Here are some options, add your favorites,

  • Sliced strawberries
  • Blueberries
  • Pitted, sliced fresh cherries
  • Cut grapes
  • Slices of kiwi
  • Diced pineapple,
  • Diced melon
  • Banana slices
  • Diced mango

Finally, cut your watermelon pizza into 8 slices and serve!

Dairy Free:  Substitute the heavy cream with coconut cream.   However, coconut cream will only reach a soft peak when whipping vs. a stiff peak.

Use your favorite dairy free yogurt alternative for the yogurt.
