      Heart-Shaped Mini Pizzas

      Every Valentine’s Day, pizza chains share the love with customers by making heart-shaped pizzas available to order for one day only. These pizzas are a cute way to say “Pie Love You,” but they’re are just as easy to make at home as they are to order. So this Valentine’s Day, put down the phone and get in the kitchen with your loved ones.

      These heart-shaped mini pizzas couldn’t be easier to make. All you need is some pizza dough, a heart-shaped cookie cutter, pizza sauce or your favorite marinara, and your toppings of choice. We chose to keep it classic and opt for cheese and mini pepperonis (they fit perfectly on the mini pizzas).

      Roll out your dough (you could use store-bought or homemade) and cut out hearts with the cookie cutter. We used a 5-inch cookie cutter that we ordered online.

      Once the hearts are cut out, the fun begins. Fill up bowls so the kids, your GF/BF, or the entire family can pick and chose their favorite toppings.

      We layered pizza sauce, shredded mozzarella cheese, and mini pepperoni on top. But you could add black olives, halved grape tomatoes, or any other miniature pie toppings you can think of.

      • 1 jar (14 ounces) pizza sauce
      • 1 package (8 ounces) shredded mozzarella
      • 1 package (5 ounces) mini pepperoni
      • Cornmeal


      1. Prepare Pizza Crust for Breadmaker
      2. Heat oven to 475°F. If using a pizza stone, place in oven to preheat.
      3. Dust cutting board with flour. Roll dough into a 14-inch diameter circle.
      4. Cut into heart shapes with a 7-inch cookie cutter. Place dough in pizza pan or sprinkle a pizza peel with cornmeal and slide dough on peel.
      5. Spread sauce thinly over each heart, leaving ½-inch around edge. Sprinkle with cheese and arrange pepperoni over pizzas.
      6. Place pizza pan in oven or slide pizza onto pizza stone.
      7. Bake 15 to 17 minutes or until crust is browned and cheese is melted and starting to brown.


      Test Kitchen Tip: If you don’t have a 7-inch heart shaped cookie cutter, cut out a 7-inch circle and form into a heart.
