Valentine Heart Pizza

Here’s a super fun recipe idea for Valentine’s Day.

What better way to say Happy Valentine’s Day than to…….

……make a pizza in the shape of a heart!

You can make large hearts, medium hearts, or small heart pizzas. And the toppings are totally up to you; they can be customized with your very own favorite ingredients.

The pizza dough is so easy to make; just 4 ingredients….ok 5 if you count the water.

I made 3 delicious pizzas from the dough recipe below. A large heart topped with ham and Swiss; a medium heart topped with fresh mozzarella, sliced tomatoes, shallots, shredded zucchini, and smoked paprika; and A small heart breakfast pizza with scrambled eggs, mozzarella and crumbled bacon. Yum!
