Ingredients

  • For the Pizza Dough (You can also use pre-made pizza dough)
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup warm water (110°F or 43°C)
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • For the Pizza Toppings (You can customize to your liking)
  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce or marinara sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Your favorite pizza toppings (e.g., pepperoni, sliced bell peppers, olives, etc.)
  • Heart-shaped cookie cutter

Instructions

- For the Pizza Dough
1
In a small bowl, combine the warm water, granulated sugar, and active dry yeast. Let it sit for about 5-10 minutes until it becomes frothy.
2
In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt. Make a well in the center.
3
Pour the yeast mixture and olive oil into the well. Stir everything together until a dough forms.
4
Pour the yeast mixture and olive oil into the well. Stir everything together until a dough forms.
5
Place the dough back in the mixing bowl, cover it with a clean kitchen towel, and let it rise in a warm place for about 1 hour or until it has doubled in size.
-For Shaping the Pizza
1
Preheat your oven to 475°F (245°C) or as high as your oven can go. If you have a pizza stone, place it in the oven while preheating.
2
Roll out the pizza dough on a floured surface into a large, thin heart shape. Use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut out a smaller heart from the center of the pizza, leaving a heart-shaped crust around the edges.
3
Transfer the heart-shaped pizza crust to a baking sheet or pizza stone if you have one.
-For Topping the Pizza
1
Spread pizza sauce evenly over the pizza crust, leaving the heart-shaped border.
2
Sprinkle shredded mozzarella cheese over the sauce.
3
Add your favorite pizza toppings, arranging them within the heart-shaped border.
- Baking
1
Carefully transfer the pizza (on the baking sheet or pizza stone) to the preheated oven.
2
Bake for about 10-15 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown, and the cheese is bubbly and slightly browned.
3
Remove the heart-shaped pizza from the oven and let it cool for a minute or two.
4
Slice it into pieces and serve your homemade heart-shaped Valentine's Day pizza to your loved one!
