I know we featured watermelon salad last week, but it is just so good right now! I stumbled upon this recipe for watermelon fruit pizza, a healthy-ish take on more traditional fruit pizzas that have a cookie crust. This one uses the watermelon as the “crust” and is topped with a creamy yogurt mixture and lots of fresh fruit. This recipe will be a show stopper at your labor day BBQ.
