Wow your loved one this Valentine’s Day with a heart-shaped pizza!


To make your own pizza dough:

1 tablespoon of dried yeast

A pinch of salt

140ml warm water

180g strong plain flour

1 tablespoon olive oil

For the topping:

1 tablespoon of dried basil

Pepperoni Slices

1 tin of chopped tomatoes

2 tablespoons of tomato puree

Grated Cheddar or Mozzarella

1 chopped onion

2 cloves of garlic sliced thinly

Handful of green olives sliced

2 tomatoes thinly sliced


If you are braving the pizza base, you need to start by mixing the salt and yeast together in a jug with the water. Place flour in a bowl, make a well in the centre and add the water mixture along with the oil. Use a wooden spoon to mix everything to create wet dough. Put on a floured surface and knead for 5 minutes.

Place in a greased bowl and cover with a tea towel. Leave at room temperature to rise for 30 minutes (should double in size). Using a knife, draw a heart shape in the dough and when you’re happy with your efforts, cut it out using a pizza cutter.

Place onto a pizza baking tray and stab with a fork several times.

For the pizza topping, spread tomato puree over the base. Add chopped tomatoes on top then add onion, olives, tomatoes and garlic.

Sprinkle over cheese, arrange pepperoni and season with salt and pepper and sprinkle on basil. Place on oiled baking sheets.

Cook at 200° for 20 minutes.

Serve with green Italian salad.
