How To Make Watermelon Pizza
Start by beating the softened cream cheese until smooth and creamy.
Add cool whip to the cream cheese and mix until smooth.
Next, stir in the powdered sugar and vanilla extract until combined. Set the cream cheese frosting aside.
Spread a half cup of the cream cheese frosting on each slice of watermelon.
Choose a variety of fruit, cut it into small pieces, and add it to the pizzas.
I wanted to make this watermelon pizza colorful so I chose blueberries for blue, kiwi for green, peaches for orange, and strawberries for red.
Watermelon Pizza FAQs
1. What other fruits would work on this pizza? Other fruits to try are cantaloupe, honeydew, mandarin oranges, grapes, raspberries, pineapple, and blackberries.
2. Can I make watermelon pizza ahead of time? Yes! I was very surprised that the cream cheese frosting stayed fresh even after being on the watermelon in the fridge overnight.
The cut fruit on the top of the pizza got a little shriveled so for best results, I suggest prepping the ingredients and then assembling the pizzas closer to serving time.
3. How can I make a lighter version of the cream cheese frosting? To make a light cream cheese frosting, use reduced-fat cream cheese, light cool whip, and a powered sugar alternative.
