Food of Love Heart-Shaped Pizza

Whether Valentine’s Day is coming up soon or you simply want to make something to put a smile on your partner’s or child’s face, this heart-shaped pizza is definitely the way to go. You can either make one large pizza or four individual ones, as you prefer. We are keeping things simple, using sauce, mozzarella and tomatoes, as well as a little oregano, or else you can use your own preferred toppings, like mushrooms, pepperoni, onion, olives, or anything else you would like to add.

We are using thawed bread dough to make the crust, since readymade heart-shaped crusts can be a little more difficult to find, even close to Valentine’s Day! Thaw the bread dough according to the instructions on the package, then you can either stretch or roll it out, making a heart shape which is pretty much even in thickness. Try to get it about an inch thick. You can either make one or four separate ones if you have enough baking trays. Use any kind of pizza sauce you want, either bottled or homemade, then you can add the cheese and tomatoes.

If you are using regular tomatoes, chop them and discard the seeds. You only need the flesh because the seeds can make the pizza soggy if you are using a lot of tomato. Another option is using cherry tomatoes, either halved, quartered or chopped. Then you can add anything else you like – tuna, olives, cooked chicken or shrimp, pineapple – the sky is the limit really! Bake the crust in the oven for 10 minutes first, before adding the sauce and toppings, then give it another 10 to 20 minutes, or until it is done. Continue reading
