Heart shaped pizza is a fun pizza to make at home, and it’s the most popular Valentine’s day recipe. You can make heart shaped pizza as part of your Valentines Day’s menu, anniversary, your loved one’s birthday, or *just because* 🙂
To make a heart shaped pizza from scratch, you need pizza dough. You can make your own pizza dough at home, or you can buy pizza dough in some grocery stores. Trader’s Joe’s carries great pizza dough.
I always make pizza dough at home. Making your own pizza dough seems so gourmet and fancy, but in reality it’s very easy. The secret to why it’s easy is the bread machine. You put the ingredients in, and the bread machine does all the work. When the machine beeps, you take the pizza dough out – it’s even easier than trying to find pizza dough at the grocery store 🙂 Check out my bread machine pizza dough recipe.
Once you have pizza dough, you need to roll it in a circle. Sprinkle some flour on the counter. Shape the pizza dough into a ball. Place the dough on the counter. Sprinkle some flour on top of the dough ball, then roll with a rolling pin. You need the flour so the dough doesn’t stick to the counter and to your rolling pin. If it sticks, sprinkle some more flour. Keep rolling the dough, pressing down on a rolling pin, until you make a large circle.
After you have a pizza dough circle, shape it into a heart! Just pull on the bottom on the circle to make a little triangle end, like the bottom of a heart shape. Then on top of the circle, make an indentation like the top of the heart shape. Now you have a heart-shaped pizza dough!
