Ingredients

  • 1 4- to 5-pound baby watermelon
  • cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 8 ounces strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 6 ounces raspberries
  • 6 ounces blueberries
  • 1/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut, lightly toasted (optional)
  • Chef notes

    Equal parts refreshing and indulgent! Watermelon pizzas are made using thick slices of baby watermelon and are such an easy way to serve dessert. I love to set up a mix and match toppings bar so guests can make their own.

    Technique tip: Make sure to keep the cream chilled until ready to serve.

    Preparation

    1.

    Cut the ends off a baby watermelon and slice it into 1-inch-thick rounds (you should get 4 or 5).

    2.

    In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat heavy cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla until medium-stiff peaks form.

    3.

    Spoon whipped cream onto watermelon rounds. Decorate with strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries. Top with toasted coconut, if desired.
