How to Cut Watermelon
To slice the watermelon into perfect triangles for your watermelon pizza slices, you are going to want to cut big thick wedges, of equal sizes.
The part closest to the middle of the watermelon is best for this, so cut off the ends and keep those for later.

Don’t cut your watermelon too far in advance, for maximum freshness and juiciness but if you do need to prepare the slices added of time then wrap your tray with cling film / Saran Wrap to keep it fresh.
