We couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful May long weekend in Ottawa. We had gorgeous hot weather with plenty of sunshine and everyone was out and about – planting flowers, barbecuing and enjoying all the happenings around town.
What were you up to for Victoria Day?
Among the many activities that we enjoyed, making a watermelon pizza was at the top of the list. It’s one of my preferred summer treats, because it’s so refreshing, delicious, and pretty too!
How to make watermelon pizza:
- Large watermelon
- Fruit toppings (sliced bananas, sliced strawberries, blueberries, sliced apples…etc.)
- Dried fruit, nuts, or chocolate (unsweetened shredded coconut, sunflower seeds, mini chocolate chips…etc.)
- Greek yogourt, coconut yogourt, or coconut whipped cream (whipped full-fat canned coconut milk)
- Lemon wedges
- Slice a large watermelon into aprox. 1 ” thick pieces (don’t worry if it’s a bit crooked, like some of my pieces were!)
- Lay flat and top with a layer of yogourt or cream
- Top with fruit and other favourite toppings
- Slice into triangular pieces (just like pizza)
- Drizzle with fresh squeeze of lemon
To prepare the watermelon for the kids to add toppings, I used my Sabatier German Steel Santoku Knife to easily cut through the thick rind. The Sabatier Santoku Knife is one awesome knife that does a terrific job at slicing without sticking to food.
To keep knives working their best, bamboo cutting boards are ideal – like this stunning one from Sabatier. Isn’t it just gorgeous? The Sabatier Bamboo Butcher Block is extremely durable and easy on knives. The butcher block doubles as a beautiful tray to present food and there are handle grooves built within it, to make it easy to carry.
It’s an ideal kitchen staple, that doubles as a cutting board as well as serving board to entertain. Just imagine a lovely cheese display on the large (12 x 18) and golden-coloured bamboo surface.
