This savory Watermelon “Pizza” with Feta and Balsamic is delicious, refreshing and makes a fun summer salad or side dish with anything you’re grilling!
Watermelon and feta with olives and balsamic is one of my favorite summer salads. With only 5 ingredients, they are simple to make and would go great as a side to anything you’re grilling. Yesterday I made grilled salmon and served two wedges on the side, it was a perfect summer meal.
I seem to be on a Mediterranean kick this week without even realizing it. Maybe it’s the large hunk of Feta I have in my fridge, but you can really have fun with these. Next time I might add some arugula and slivered red onion on top, maybe even grilled shrimp to make this an appetizer.
This idea was inspired from a recipe I saw in the Superfood Snacks Cookbook. They made a Watermelon Pizza topped with more fruit, nut and goji berries which you can see pictured below.
You can top watermelon pizza with savory ingredients like I did here, or try a dessert pizza topped with yogurt with fresh fruit, berries, shredded coconut, etc.
How To Make Savory Watermelon Pizza
How To Cut Watermelon Pizza
To make this in a perfect pizza shape out of watermelon can be tricky. To simplify, I bought a round watermelon, cut it in half, then laid the flat part on the cutting board and sliced a 1-inch slice from each half. Then I cut them into pizza slices.

Gina,I absolutely LOVE your blog, AND cook books. Everything I make is received so favorably by everyone, always. I brag to all about you and Skinny Taste. I’m someone who bought numerous copies of your first cookbook and gave to all my lady friends.
With all that being said, I’m writing to let you know that, unfortunately, this years long trend came to an end :(. Two different groups of people of all ages, did not enjoy anything about the watermelon feta and balsamic pizzas, I’m afraid. Thought you should know someone actually said it was “ungainly” to eat. Ouch! Do know that I prepared it exactly as you advised, as always, and it did not go over well, at all. My only thought is my groups of family/friends just aren’t as adventurous as we are. All the best. I’m still a fan! Cheers, Jennifer
Not every recipe is for everyone! I appreciate your honesty!
What a perfect summer time appetizer! Light, easy and tasty! I added even more mint and it was quite refreshing! My balsamic glaze seemed rather heavy and seemed to dominate the pizza (I couldn’t get it to drizzle like your beautiful picture) so I cut it with some pomegranate balsamic vinegar to lighten up the flavor. I will keep trying to perfect your drizzle! Always nice to take an appetizer everyone devours! Thanks you!
The recipes all look amazing! I’ll be serving watermelon pizza this Canada day!
