Heart Shaped Pizza

How was everyone’s Valentine’s Day?  I got home from work yesterday and wanted to cook up something special for my Hubby, so I decided to make his favorite food: PIZZA!  Are we romantic or what?

Rob usually bakes up a homemade pie a few times a week (like I said, he loves pizza), so I wanted to give him a break and make a special Valentine’s Day pizza- heart shaped!  The quickest way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, right?  So what’s faster than heart shaped food!

We use store bought whole wheat pizza dough.  I sprayed our pizza stone with non-stick cooking spray,  rolled it out the dough like usual on it, but then cut a “V” at the top and shaped the bottom into a point.  I figured the pizza would lose some of its shape while baking, so I wanted to make the heart shape extra pronounced while the dough was raw.

Then I loaded it up with sauce, mozzarella cheese, and with a cherry tomato heart border (and mushrooms too, although they’re not in the photo below).


I popped it into the oven at 450 degrees and waited for my heart shaped surprise.  The pizza looked great once it was done!


Rob thought the heart shaped pizza looked great, but he was most excited about eating it!  And I must say it was delicious!


Did you have a Valentine’s Day dinner last night?  Was it ultra-romantic like ours or did you just have a fancy meal by candle light?  Haha!
