This dish was inspired by the amazing Éric Ripert, although I must admit, my version is not as elegantly crafted as his. This pizza shares some key ingredients with my watermelon salad. If you're curious about the original recipe, you can find it here.
To be honest, I was a bit hesitant to share this creation, and calling it a "pizza" felt a bit unconventional. But then I thought, "Why not?" So here it is! If you're not in the mood to prepare a traditional watermelon salad, this could be a delightful and fun alternative.
Now, here's a tip you shouldn't ignore - don't skip the olives! They add a fantastic boost of flavor that takes this dish to a whole new level. The magic of this recipe lies in the wonderful combination of ingredients that come together so effortlessly.
So, if you're up for some fun and easy experimentation in the kitchen, I highly recommend giving this unique "pizza" a try. It might not be your typical pie, but it's a delicious and refreshing way to enjoy the flavors of summer!
