Valentine’s Day Pizza
Heart shaped Pizza
I love having fun with all holidays and Valentine’s Day is no exception. I always like to make the holidays fun for the kids and have our meals and treats that day be fun and festive. I like to have a fun and festive Valentine’s Day Breakfast including egg in a heart, then pack the kids lunches with Valentine’s day Treats and then make a fun Valentine’s Day dinner.
Valentines day used to be about going to for a romantic dinner but now that I have my children it is about making them feel extra loved. I have now forgotten about my fancy steak dinners and traded it in for cute pizzas.
Some people may think I am crazy, but my kids are only little once. When they are grown hubby and I can go back to the day being about us as a couple. I may even continue to make Valentine’s Day pizza because he loves pizza so much!

How to Shape Pizza Crust into a heart shape
You can use heart shaped cookie cutter or you can shape the pizza dough by hand to be in the shape of a heart.
Start out with a ball of pizza dough roughly the size of a tennis ball. If you are using a sheet of pizza dough just roll it into a ball.
Flatten the pizza dough into a circular shape just like you would when you are making homemade pizza.
Once you have the dough in a circular shape, start at the bottom of the dough and pull it downward gentle to form the point of the heart. It will look a little bit like a tear drop.
Then take your finger and push down the center of the top of the pizza crust to form the heart shape.
How to Make Heart Shaped Pepperoni
If you are making a pepperoni pizza and want heart shaped pepperoni as a topping it is SUPER easy to make heart shaped pepperoni! You can totally cut a heart shape out of a pepperoni by folding it in half and cutting half a heart shape, opening it up and then you have a full heart.
However for me that is quite a bit of guessing that I don’t always want to do, so I stack a few pieces of pepperoni and then use a tiny heart cookie cutter to cut out the heart shaped pepperoni.
