Ingredients for pizza

  • 1 20-25 lb. seedless watermelon
  • 2 cups cilantro leaves
  • 6 oz. queso fresco
  • ¼ cup honey
  • Fresh lime wedges as garnish
  • Pickled red onions (see recipe below)

Ingredients for pickled red onions

  • 1 medium red onion thinly sliced
  • ½ cup white vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • 1½ teaspoons kosher salt


  1. About an hour before grilling the watermelon, combine the sliced red onion, white vinegar, lime juice, honey and salt in a small glass bowl. Cover and refrigerate for an hour.
  2. Preheat grill to high (about 500 degrees F). Slice watermelon into 1.5-inch rounds using a large, sharp knife.
  3. Brush each side of the watermelon slice with the liquid from the pickled onions.
  4. Place the watermelon rounds on the grill and cook for 3-4 minutes per side or until there are some light char marks on each side of the watermelon.
  5. Place each grilled watermelon round on a large cutting board, drizzle with some of the honey, then top with a few slices of the pickled red onion, some of the queso fresco and cilantro.
  6. Serve while still warm with a fresh lime wedge to squeeze over the top.
