Ingredients
  • 2 - 16 oz fresh pizza dough
  • ⅔ c pizza sauce
  • 18 tomato halves, chopped, from Meal 2
  • 8 oz fresh mozzarella cheese, torn into small pieces
  • ¼ c prepared pesto
  • ½ t salt, ½ t ground black pepper
  • 3 T extra-virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup of mozzarella and sprinkle with parm
  • about 12 slices of pepperoni
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 500° F. Let dough sit at room temperature 30 minutes. Using a little flour, roll 1 dough out to a 14” circle and then shape into a heart. Cut out a triangle in the top middle of the dough to give it more of a heart shape. Prick dough liberally with a fork. Place dough on a baking sheet (We used a pizza stone). Spread ⅓ c sauce evenly over dough. Top with ½ tomatoes and ½ cheese. Sprinkle with 2 T pesto, ½ of the shredded mozzarella, sprinkle with parm, salt and pepper. Add heart shaped peperoni. Bake 14 minutes or until cheese is beginning to brown and crust is done in the middle. Drizzle with ½ olive oil.
Notes
We got the pizza dough at our local grocery store. You can also make your own!
