you totally need to make this for valentine’s day. (Valentine’s Day Heart Pepperoni Pizza!)

I don’t think I can ever eat a regular shaped pizza again in my life.

Who cares about circles and squares and rectangular flatbreads when you can have your pizza in a HEART?

Can we say adorable?

The heart shaped pepperoni is a must… and I don’t even love pepperoni. It’s super simple to do – take round peppersoni slides (any size works), fold them in half and cut them into a teardrop shape with kitchen shears. Unfold the slice and you have a heart! You will get the hang of it once you do a few.

I really can’t even.

This doesn’t requite an exact *recipe* to share and I certainly didn’t come up with this idea on my own, but I’ve seen the concept floating around the internets for a few years. I made it for Eddie last week and… I don’t know if he was as excited as me that it was heart shaped. But it was delicious.

I use this crust. Let it rise like normal, then shape it into a heart on a pizza peel. It won’t be perfect!

I use jarred sauce, because I’m lazy.

For this particular pizza, I torn up a ball of buffalo mozzarella and threw it on top. Then the heart pepperoni. Slid it on a pizza stone – it may be even less perfect at this point! Baked it for 15ish minutes or so, but that really depends on your crust.

Added fresh basil leaves!

Ate our little hearts out.

That was bad, I know.

The most charming of all the pizzas right? DO it.
