Heart Pizza for Valentine's Day

We don't always do Valentine's Day in my house. But one year I was feeling extra nice and surprised my husband with pizza at the office. He was working for a tiny company at the time (only 5 people) and so I had his favorite pizza (stuffed cheese) delivered for the whole office at lunch time. Not only was my husband thrilled, but his boss was pretty happy, too. Never, EVER, underestimate the importance of impressing the boss!

This cute Be-My-Valentine Pizza from Taste of Home reminds me of that year...


Be-My-Valentine Pizza from Taste of Home

1 tube (13.8 ounces) refrigerated pizza crust

1/4 cup shredded Italian cheese blend

1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

2 slices provolone cheese, cut in half

1/4 cup pizza sauce

18 slices pepperoni

1/4 cup chopped onion

1/4 cup sliced ripe olives

Unroll pizza dough onto a greased baking sheet; flatten dough. Cut into 10-inch heart with kitchen scissors or knife. Bake at 425° for 8 minutes. Combine the Italian and mozzarella cheeses; set aside. Arrange provolone cheese over crust to within 1/2 inch of edges. Spread with pizza sauce. Layer with the pepperoni, onion, olives and cheese mixture. Bake 8-10 minutes longer or until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted.
