make a heart-shaped pizza

Why don't you make a heart-shaped pizza for Valentine's Day? It's a simple, inexpensive gesture, but the results are sure to make you and your special someone smile. Heart-shaped pizzas also work great for Valentine's Day parties with kids, extended family and friends. You can make several -- one to suit every person's pizza taste. The more hearts, the better!

To make the heart shape, simply roll out your preferred pizza dough on a lightly floured pastry mat and then use a butter knife or pizza cutter to cut out your heart shape. My pastry mat is designed for cutting, but be careful not to cut your mat or surface!

You can lightly trace your heart before cutting all the way through if you aren't sure if you'll be happy with your first attempt at a heart shape. Then add your favorite sauce and pizza toppings and place in the oven on 400 degrees until the dough and toppings are golden brown. Enjoy your heart pizzas with your loved ones.

Happy Valentine's Day!
