Kick dessert butt with watermelon pizza

Watermelon pizza

Is kicking dessert butt a thing? Because if it’s not, it should be. Anyway, as a person who has to eat gluten-free and dairy-free, dessert is something I lost some interest in a little while ago; before there were plenty of options. If I have to intake empty calories – yes I’m saying “have to” even though twisting my rubber arm is easy to do – I prefer Prosecco over cake.

But, I like to change it up a bit and looked for something different than cake, brownies, cupcakes or donuts (seriously, I wanted a donut as soon as I typed that). I love fruit and had heard of watermelon pizza, so I thought I’d give it a try.

Like traditional dessert, it has some fat, carbs, and calories, but it also comes with health benefits! The ingredients in this recipe can help with disease prevention and anti-aging, lower blood pressure and can help with depression, intestinal health, and allergies.
