Equipment

  • 1 pizza pan or baking sheet
  • 1 Rolling Pin (if making homemade Pizza Dough)

Ingredients
  

  • 1 pizza dough (homemade Pizza Dough or store-bought)
  • ½ cup tomato sauce (125 ml)
  • 1 tsp dried basil (or dried origan)
  • mozzarella cheese (Fresh -sliced)
  • basil leaves (Fresh)
  • extra-virgin olive oil
  • other toppings Optional: pepperoni, ham, mushroom, pineapple, artichoke, ...

Instructions
 

  • Use Pizza Dough: Start with your favorite pizza dough recipe or store-bought dough for convenience. Shape the dough into a heart shape by gently stretching and forming it with your hands or using a heart-shaped template as a guide. Place the pizza dough on a baking sheet or directly on a pizza pan (covered with parchment paper or you can use a teaspoon of oil to grease the pizza pan and prevent sticking. ).
  • Preheat the Oven: preheat the oven to the highest temperature 475°F or as per your pizza dough instructions.
  • Prep Toppings in Advance: Prepare your favorite pizza toppings ahead of time, such as tomato sauce, shredded cheese, vegetables, meats, and herbs. Arrange them in bowls for easy assembly.
  • Get Creative with Toppings: Customize your heart-shaped pizza with toppings that reflect your loved one's preferences. Consider adding heart-shaped pepperoni slices, colorful bell peppers, sweet caramelized onions for a personalized touch.
  • Bake with Love: Bake until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is bubbly and melted (10 minutes, more or less).
  • Finish with Fresh Basil: remove the pizza from the oven and scatter fresh basil leaves on top.

Notes

  • For an authentic touch, use high-quality tomatoes sauce and fresh mozzarella.
  • Be creative with crust thickness—whether you prefer thin and crispy or a slightly thicker, chewier crust.
  • Drizzle with a bit more olive oil or add a sprinkle of Parmesan before serving if desired.
  • Fresh basil should be added after baking to preserve its aromatic flavor.
