 Valentine's Day Heart-Shaped Pizza

Make this Valentine's Day extra special with a fun and delicious heart-shaped pizza that the whole family will love! Perfect for a cozy night in, this recipe allows everyone to get creative with their toppings, making it a memorable and enjoyable experience for all. You can make your own pizza dough or use store bought.


  • 1 package of store-bought pizza dough
  • 1 cup of your favorite pizza sauce
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Assorted toppings such as pepperoni, bell peppers, onions, olives, mushrooms, and cooked sausage
  • Heart-shaped cookie cutter
  • Flour (for dusting)


  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven according to the instructions on the pizza dough package.
  2. Prepare the Dough: Lightly dust a clean surface with flour. Roll out the pizza dough into a large circle, about 1/4 inch thick. Use the heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut out heart shapes from the dough. Repeat until you have used up all the dough, re-rolling as needed.
  3. Assemble the Pizza: Place the heart-shaped pizza crusts onto a lightly greased baking sheet or pizza stone. Spread a thin layer of pizza sauce onto each crust, leaving a small border around the edges. Sprinkle shredded mozzarella cheese evenly over the sauce.
  4. Add Toppings: Let each family member customize their own pizza heart with their favorite toppings. Arrange the toppings creatively to make each heart unique and colorful.
  5. Bake the Pizzas: Carefully transfer the baking sheet or pizza stone to the preheated oven. Bake the pizzas for about 12-15 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is bubbly and melted.
  6. Serve and Enjoy: Once the pizzas are done baking, remove them from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes. Slice the heart-shaped pizzas into wedges and serve hot. Enjoy your Valentine's Day family pizza night!


  • Get the kids involved in the pizza-making process by letting them choose their toppings and decorate their own pizzas.
  • If you don't have a heart-shaped cookie cutter, you can use a knife to carefully shape the dough into hearts.
  • Feel free to experiment with different toppings and sauces to suit your family's preferences.
  • Serve the heart-shaped pizzas with a side salad or some fresh fruit for a well-rounded meal.
