At Well+Good, we’re constantly coming across genius recipes—whether it’s on Instagram, in soon-to-be published cookbooks, or directly from buzzy food bloggers themselves. And we’re sharing, by spotlighting the most awesome recipe we’ve come across each week. Ready to get cooking? Check out this week’s pick, below!

If you’ve tried your city’s healthy pizza joints and made your own cauliflower crust ‘za at home, get ready for the next big trend in healthy slices: watermelon. 

The of-the-moment summer fruit is replacing traditional dough in a light, refreshing (and, duh, delicious) entrée. Topped with yogurt, granola, and your favorite in-season fruit, watermelon pizza is equally suitable for a healthy breakfast or a dinner party. An added bonus: The dish is most definitely Instagram-worthy.

This recipe comes from Dani Tucker, who created the cookbook The Social Kitchen (released earlier this year), in honor of her mother, Shally—one hundred percent of the sales are donated to Dermatrust, a non-profit helping people with skin disease (as if you needed another reason to buy a copy for yourself).

The Social Kitchen‘s Watermelon Pizza

1 small whole watermelon
Selection of fruit
5 Tbsp yogurt
3 Tbsp granola

1. Cut the melon roughly an inch thick through the center to keep the round shape.

2. Cut into pieces, like it’s a pizza.

3. Spoon yogurt over the pieces from the center (AKA the point) outwards toward the rind.

4. Place your selection of fruit on top.

5. Lightly sprinkle on the granola and drizzle agave on top.
