Playing Jeanette’s Italian-Style Grilled Watermelon Pizza

Fire up the grill for this summer-ready Italian-Style Grilled Watermelon Pizza, which uses grilled watermelon as the base instead of pizza dough. 

For more creative ways to use watermelon, try these Watermelon Caprese Skewers or Watermelon Sorbet Sandwiches.


  • 1 disc seedless watermelon about 1- to 2-inches thick
  • Salt and pepper
  • 6 slices prosciutto, thinly sliced
  • 10 to 12 thin slices Parmigiano Reggiano
  • 1 handful arugula
  • Balsamic drizzle, for garnish


Serves: 6-8 as a snack


Preheat an outdoor grill or cast-iron grill pan. Once hot, place the watermelon disc down on the grill to caramelize and mark, about 2-3 minutes. With tongs or a large spatula, flip the watermelon and grill another 2-3 minutes. Remove watermelon to a cutting board and let rest for about 5 minutes.

Season grilled watermelon with salt and pepper. Top with prosciutto, Parmigiano and arugula, and garnish with balsamic drizzle. Slice into 6-8 "pizza" slices and serve.
