Heart-Shaped Pizza for Valentine's Day

Homemade Pizza Crust Recipe

Directions:

  1. In a medium-size bowl, blend the Jiffy or Bisquick baking mix with water.
  2. Turn the pizza dough onto a surface that has been dusted with baking mix or flour.
  3. Knead until dough is not sticky, about one minute.
  4. Press pizza dough on a cookie sheet shaping your pizza dough into a heart shape, or use the special heart-shaped pizza pan that is suggested above.

TIP: We spray our cookie sheet or pan with a spray oil first, even if it is non-stick. It definitely helps to remove the pizza later and prevents sticking.

Homemade Marinara Sauce

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 (28-ounce) can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon fresh black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional)

Directions:

  2. Add the crushed tomatoes, sugar, salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper flakes (optional), stirring to combine.
  3. Simmer for 7 to 9 minutes, stirring occasionally. Season with additional salt, pepper or sugar, to taste.
