Watermelon Pizza Ingredients:
- 1 large seedless watermelon, sliced into wedges
- 1½ cups crumbled feta cheese
- ½ cup sliced green olives
- ½ cup sliced Kalamata olives, pitted, and quartered lengthwise
- ½ cup thinly sliced fresh mint leaves
- freshly ground black pepper to taste
- 2 tablespoons rice vinegar, or balsamic, as desired
Slice watermelon in half lengthwise, then each half lengthwise into quarters. Cut uniformly thick slices from the center of each quarter and place on plates or trays.
Remove any of the soft, white seeds, and use the tip of a spoon to make small, shallow divots in the surface to help hold the toppings.
Scatter some feta cheese, olives, and mint over the slices.
Season lightly with freshly ground black pepper.
Drizzle each slice with a touch of rice vinegar or balsamic, and olive oil.
Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate until needed.
