Pizza is a clever way to present fruit, which hopefully means you and your kids will eat more of it! There are endless possibilities, from savory appetizers to full on fruit salad. Here we have a watermelon pizza, with shredded coconut masquerading as grated cheese, and toppings of blueberries and kiwi fruit. You can also try slices of peach, banana (soak it in lemon juice first to prevent oxidation) or cherries and grapes.

Buyer Beware: Check that your watermelon is red inside, as many are yellow in Hong Kong. And do try to buy whole melons rather than pre-cut pieces, as there is less chance of bacteria getting in.

You’ll Need:

  • 1 watermelon
  • 2 kiwi fruits
  • 100g shredded coconut
  • 200g blueberries


  • Take time to cut perfect whole slices of watermelon, shaving bits off to make them the right height.
  • Scatter with the shredded coconut, blueberries and slices of fruit.
  • You might like to use interesting shaped cutters for the fruit.
