Heart Shaped Pizza

This is a simple how-to tutorial on how to take store bought, or homemade pizza dough to shape a heart shaped pizza.

When pizza is just about your favorite food, a heart shaped pizza is a great way to celebrate Valentine’s Day! There was a time when there were no heart shaped anythings for Bruce and I. We decided from the start of our relationship that we were not going to celebrate Valentine’s day. We felt like every day was special. Then a few year’s ago, Bruce gave me a charm with a heart on it for a bracelet. That was the start of celebrating Valentine’s day. Not with roses or greeting cards, but with food. We made heart shaped cookies. He made strawberry topped cupcakes. And now….I make heart shaped pizzas.

You can use store bought pizza dough from Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods, or make your own. You know we love making our own dough the night before, and then making pizza’s at home is so easy! Here are 2 of our pizza dough recipes for you to try.
