“Watermelon” Fruit Pizza

As much as I love watermelon, I don’t feel it necessarily belongs on a fruit pizza. That said, it doesn’t mean I can’t fake it! When Damir fell for my Patriotic Fruit Pizza, I wanted to try a different design with the second one. The recipe is essentially the same but the results, while different, are just as delicious.

“Watermelon” Fruit Pizza

You will need:

Crust

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 3/4 cup flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 TBS white granulated sugar

Toppings

  • 2-3 cups whipped cream
  • Strawberries and peeled kiwi

Watermelon Pizza 1

Instructions:

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Use an electric mixer to beat the butter, powdered sugar, egg, and vanilla. Add the flour, baking powder, and salt and beat until combined.

2. Spray a pizza pan or cookie sheet in the shape you want your fruit pizza, and gently press the dough into the pan so it is roughly 1/4 inch thick. You can make the dough in this recipe stretch for two smaller pans if you are looking to feed more people, just press the dough a bit thinner.

3. Bake for 10-15 or so minutes, but continue to check after 10 as each oven cooks slightly different. You want it to be cooked through the center without burning the outside of the cookie. A gentle golden brown around the outside is perfect. As soon as you take it out of the oven, sprinkle top of cookie crust with the granulated sugar.

4. Allow crust to cool completely. I often will make the crust the night before just so I don’t have to worry about it. Once cool, spread your whipped cream on top of the cookie. To achieve the look, slice the strawberries into thin slices and removing the outside hull (great for snacking). Slice the kiwi, and half each slice. Arrange with the Kiwi around the edge and fill in the rest with the strawberry slices.

Hello!

Hi! I'm Alyce.
Welcome to my journey towards living a happier and healthier life while living with PTSD and chronic pain... and never letting it keep me from my passion for Halloween, cooking, and way too many DIY projects... all at the same time!

  • Maybe Christmas doesn't come from a store. Maybe Christmas... perhaps... means a little bit more. 
Super excited that my family is NOT doing gifts this year! We are all just bringing a side dish, dessert, and a board game for some quality family time. What are you doing for Christmas? #thegrinchwhostolechristmas #whoville #grinch #grinchchristmas #christmasmovies #grinchmas
  • Even if I wanted to go, my schedule wouldn't allow it! 4 o'clock: wallow in self pity. 4:30: stare into the abyss. 5 o'clock: solve world hunger (tell no one). 5:30: jazzercise. 6:30: dinner with me, I can't cancel that again! 7 o'clock: wrestle with my self loathing. I'm booked! Course if I bump the loathing to 9 I can still be done in time to lay in bed, stare at the ceiling and slip slowly into madness. But what would I wear! #thegrinchwhostolechristmas #whoville #grinch #grinchchristmas #christmasmovies
  • "I'm gunna throw up... and then I'm going to DIIIIIIIEEEEEEEE!"
Probably my favorite line in the entire movie, so much so that it has stuck with me for years. This is often how my anxiety feels like, and I think of this line from the Grinch often when I'm struggling, even at the height of summer! So, the Grinch is a bit near and dear to my heart, and no one will ever take Jim Carrey's place in my heart, even if if it does grow three sizes. #grinch #thegrinchthatstolechristmas #christmas #grinchmakeup
  • I’ve never actually smoked a day in my life. #frosty #frostythesnowman #glamfrosty #winter #wintermakeup
  • One of the reasons I liked this makeup so much was the incredibly simple nose. I’ve tried some looks in the past and I don’t know if it was the white face, orange nose, or just my lack of makeup experience, but I hated them. Instead of trying to literally draw a carrot, this is just a nod in that direction. Also, I’m not one for glitter but I really dig these eyes! Good thing I like them, because I still have glitter on my face. #glitter #frosty #wintermakeup
  • Sticking with my winter theme, it’s Frosty! Ok, this one is a great example of why I love the internet. I saw an AMAZING frosty photo on an Instagram feature account and took a screenshot because I was dying to recreate it. Normally I make sure I have the artists handle in the screenshot so I can tag them if I ever do try it, but somehow missed it this time. To find her, I took to YouTube to find @victorialyn ’s tutorial, and I’m completely blown away with not only the makeup, but the production quality of her videos. I know how much time and effort something like that takes and they are so much fun to watch, even if you don’t plan on doing the makeup in the tutorial. I love finding new artists to follow and be inspired by! #frosty #frostythesnowman #winter
  • The last look at my Frostbite! What other injury makeups could be considered "Holiday"? or at least timely for winter? Or should I do something more glam next? I have half a mind to save more gory winter looks for January when i'm no longer feeling the warm and fuzzies when it snows! #winter #frostbite #frostbitemakeup #sfx #sfxmua
  • "Walking in a Winter Wonderland"
Im really pleased with how this turned out! I know it's no super glamorous but creating actual injuries and skin conditions is a great challenge. I'll spare you the reference material, but it was fun trying to re-create the blistering, as gross as that sounds. Stay warm my friends! #frostbite #frostbitemakeup #winterwonderland #sfxmakeup #sfxmua
  • "Baby it's cold outside."
This look inspired by a 3 hour drive in a blizzard last weekend. It actually wasn't too bad, mostly just excruciatingly slow, but living in SD, I know how dangerous it can be going off the road in bad conditions. #frostbite #SFX #sfxmakeup #brrrrrr #sfxwound
