I love making pizza for my family because it is such a crowd pleaser. And this pizza says it all on Valentine’s Day by first, being so cheesy, and second, being so stinkin’ adorable, and third, it absolutely says love with its crispy, garlicky crust.
Step aside Godfathers, Mama’s got this one!
How to make this heart shape pizza:
Click HERE to be taken to Planner Perfect Meals, for my absolute delicious pizza dough recipe and HERE for my homemade pizza sauce, recipe.
To make the heart shape, I use a baking stone set real hot at 500 degrees.
Dust a pizza paddle with cornmeal.
Roll the dough out to form a circle. Then cut a “v” out of the top of the circle, to create the humps of the heart.
Place it on your dusted pizza paddle and scoot onto the stone to lightly brown for only 5-8 minutes. This will ensure they dough stays heart shaped.
Once done, take the crust out and top it with your family’s favorite toppings. Toss it back into the oven until the cheese is melted and the crust is crispy.
***If you don’t have a stone, no worries, shape the same way only dust a baking sheet with the cornmeal, place your heart shape dough on the sheet and add your toppings. Bake at 475 degrees until crust is browned and cheese is melted.***
Happy Valentine’s Month!
