Celebrate Valentine’s Day, anniversaries, or even birthdays with a fun, homemade heart-shaped pizza – a fun & an easy-to-make, sure to win over hearts and taste buds!!Heart-shaped pizza has become a Valentine’s Day family tradition at our house! We’re always a fan of fun-foods and this is such a simple way to create a little special occasion magic! Just look at that Valentine’s Day spread! Simple, but fun!
Not only was it super tasty, but the kids thought it was super fun…and loved the heart-shaped pepperonis! 🙂
Here’s what I used:
– Already made pizza dough, La Romanella pizza sauce, parmesan cheese, mozarella cheese, olive oil, pepperonis, and black olives.

I hadn’t made a heart-shaped pizza before, so I wasn’t sure how the dough would hold up. But, I was pleasantly surprised. After rolling it out fairly thin, I just carved it into a heart shape. Then I used some of the scraps to make a better crusty edge. – Then, I covered the dough in the La Romanella pizza sauce! I’m always nervous about trying new sauces because of the spices, but this one was perfect! And, I love that I have left over sauce (in the freezer) to use for another pizza! 🙂 – Time for toppings! I thought about doing a chicken/artichoke combo because I love La Romanella’s marinated artichokes, but I’ve done a few related posts on that already (chicken & artichoke pasta and spinach & artichoke dip), so opted for our favorite ‘ole standby: pepperonis & black olives! 🙂
– I layered some pepperonis right onto the sauce, but then also used a small heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut out some heart-shaped pepperonis. The scraps from that when straight onto the sauce too!
– Then, top the pizza with mozzarella cheese, cut black olives, and the heart-shaped pepperonis. The final step–which makes things a little extra tasty is brushing a light coating of olive oil on the outside crust & sprinkling Parmesan cheese on it! Yum!– Bake according to your dough directions, then, voila…delicious, heart-shaped pizza! Perfect for upcoming Valentine’s festivities! 🙂

Such a fun idea! And I love how you even went a step further than made the pepperoni heart shaped too….plus putting the scraps under the cheese? So smart! Thank you for linking up to the Weekend Kitchen Party…I hope you’ll come back and link up another recipe or kitchen craft this weekend.
