Watermelon pizza is kind of like regular pizza on a vacation, in it’s summer attire with cool shades et al :).
Your plate is a canvas and with soulful, colorful, masterful strokes, you create poetry on a plate. And food that lovingly prepared, plated, and eaten nourishes your mind, body, and soul all at the same time. And the positive benefits of that on your health and on your body is something we will talk about some other day in a different post.
Summer calls for creative, light, refreshing, nutritious fruity recipes. And the Watermelon Pizza is just that!
It is healthy and fun way to make summer recipes colorful, easy, exciting, and nourishing. The recipe is playful, easy and as a result, you can also get the kids involved in putting it together. And once they are involved, it will keep them busy at a party / get together and also when they are involved in making something, they are much more likely to enthusiastically consume the final product 🙂 It’s a win-win!
Rich in lycopene, antioxidants, and amino acids, each juicy bite has significant levels of vitamins A, B6 and C. This recipe is vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free. Can be consumed during fasting as well.
