Let's Love Our Hearts in February (w/ Giveaway)

My husband and I don't really celebrate Valentine's Day. I may be able to squeeze a mid-week massage out of him but that's about as romantic as it's gonna get at our house next Tuesday. However, I love making it a special day for my kids. They always wake up to a special treat on Valentine's Day and we have something to fit the "heart" theme for dinner or dessert. This year we are going with a heart shaped pizza recipe. With only four ingredients, this recipe is as easy as it gets and perfect to make with the kids!

Ingredients:
1 can Pillsbury* Refrigerated Pizza Crust
1 cup (250 mL) pizza sauce
24 slices pepperoni
1 cup (250 mL) shredded mozzarella cheese


-If using classic crust: Heat oven to 425ºF. Lightly spray or grease large cookie sheet.
-Unroll dough on work surface. With sharp knife or pizza cutter, cut dough into 4 rectangles. Place rectangles on cookie sheet. Cut 1-inch slit in centre of wide edge of each dough portion; on opposite wide edge across from slit, pinch dough together to shape point of heart. Slightly separate each cut slit, and gently press dough into a 6x5-inch heart, creating slight rim on edge of dough.
-Divide pizza sauce evenly onto hearts, spreading to within 1/2 inch of edges. Top each with 6 slices pepperoni and 1/4 cup cheese.
-Bake 13 to 16 minutes or until crust edges are golden brown and cheese is melted.

I did a test run today and it turned out great. I left out the pepperoni and cut the crust off after cooking as that's my pizza preference. You could also add any sort of veggies you like. I can't wait to make these with the kids on Valentine's Day.

By now, I'm sure you know that February is not only the month of love but it's also Heart Month. I mentioned the new Cheerios.ca website in my last Life Made Delicious Connector post.
