Happy Valentine's Day: Love Pie

Love pie

Happy Valentine's day! Whether you're a "go big or go home" celebrator, or more of a stay-at-home celebrator (like us!) I hope you have a wonderful day. If you're celebrating at home, impress your loved one with a love pie - that is, a heart-shaped pizza! (Maybe you were thinking steak...but everyone loves pizza.)

This technique is pretty simple: make dough according to my favorite whole-wheat pizza crust recipe, or your favorite pizza dough recipe. Then, roll out the dough for one crust on a lightly floured surface into a roughly heart-shaped shape - so it is wider at the top, narrower at the bottom. No need to be perfect here, because the next step is to take a pizza cutter or sharp knife, and cut out the heart shape. Cut as large a shape as you can, given your dough (but be sure it will still fit on the pizza stone). Or, cut individual-sized pizzas. Then, proceed to bake the crust and pizza according to the recipe directions

Top these however you like - the pizza pictured is Nick's Hawaiian pie.
