New Jersey! We sure know our way around a pizza. According to New Jersey's Twitter account, we are the Pizza Capital of the world!
We also love our yummy fruits in the summer—watermelon watermelon anyone? Put 'em together and whatta ya got? WATERMELON PIZZA, of course!!!!
WATERMELON PIZZA RECIPE
Start with a round watermelon (seedless preferred)
Cut one round circular slice
Cut 8 individual 'slices' from the round
Add your favorite toppings (a pizza just isn't a pizza without toppings)
So what goes on watermelon pizza, you ask?
Of course we need something green ... *chiffonade some fresh mint!
*(Chiffonade is a slicing technique for cutting long, thin strips.)
This is accomplished by stacking the leaves, rolling them tightly, and then slicing the leaves perpendicularly.
We also need something white … our 'cheese of choice' is shredded COCONUT!
Some other white favs:goat cheese, feta cheese, and Greek yogurt
Let's add some other fruits!
Such as chunks of strawberry, banana, mango, pineapple, or avocado. (Yep, technically a fruit!)
Feeling fancy? Some veggies work, too! Try red onion, jalapeno, or even corn!
Crushed nuts like almonds, pecans, or pistachios work, too!
How about a dash of seasoning on top like chili pepper, salt, or ground ginger?
Finish it off with a drizzle of honey or maple syrup for watermelon pizza perfection!
