Watermelon Pizza topped with whipped coconut cream & your favorite summer fruit.
Pizza is the BEST. Whether you make it at home, get carry out, or discover new brick oven restaurants in new cities, it’s pretty hard to go wrong with pizza.
In January we visited my husband’s brother & sister-in-law & they took us to a delicious pizza restaurant called Bricks and Birch in California. I couldn’t believe how many vegetarian options were available. And they weren’t your run-of-the-mill veggie loaded pizza, they even had one called the Thai Pie that was incredibly delicious!
In March, when we visited Italy for the first time, we tried a variety of pizza’s & were surprised to discover that Via Napoli in Epcot does a fantastic job at replicating the original Italian classic.
But sometimes, especially in the summer, what you really crave is fruit, especially when it is growing everywhere & you can get it for next to nothing or even for free (thanks to my mom & mother-in-law’s extensive fruit gardens).
Since watermelon is incredibly cheap right now, I decided to combine the concept of pizza with my love for fresh fruit.
And you will be happy to know that this recipe is completely vegan, gluten free, & a fruit lover’s dream come true! However, if you want to make real whipped cream to top your Watermelon Pizza you can find a recipe for homemade whipped cream inside of this recipe post for Strawberries & Cream Popsicles.

One of my favorite things about this watermelon fruit pizza is that you can customize it with all of your favorite seasonal fruit or whatever you already have on hand. Plus it can be served for breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner, dessert, or at a party.
It’s a completely guilt free treat that is perfect for any occasion!

- *1. Place the canned coconut milk in your fridge overnight before making this recipe. I used Thai Kitchen Pure Coconut Milk.
- *2. If the whipped coconut cream is too thick add 1/4 teaspoon of the remaining coconut milk & continue blending. Add more as needed.
