Watermelon Pizza with Balsamic Glaze

Watermelon is one of my favourite summer fruits.  It is no coincidence that the word WATER appears in watermelon.  It is thirst quenching and with this hot and humid weather we have been experiencing here in Toronto I can’t get enough of it!

Who says your pizza has to be made out of bread? Bite into a slice of summer with this savoury pizza fruit salad.  You can have fun combining different savoury flavours or turn it into a sweet treat by adding banana, chocolate sauce, berries, yogurt and the list of lovely ingredients goes on.

This watermelon pizza can also be served as an appetizer or side to a grilled summer dish.  Enjoy!


1 watermelon slice (1 inch thick)

1 oz goat cheese

6-8 green olives

6-8 basil leaves

1 tablespoon of balsamic glaze


Slice a whole watermelon in half. Placing the flat down on a cutting board, cut a 1-inch thick slice from each half then cut each again in half (making 4 wedges).

Place the cut watermelon on a round dish and top with cheese, olives, basil and drizzle with balsamic glaze
