Valentine’s Pizza

I used to buy pre-made pizza crust and one day I wanted to try whole made dough.  My kids will never let me buy pre-made crust again!  Easy to make and a great work out for your arms.

Pizza Crust

1 package fast acting yeast

3 cups all purpose flour

1 tsp sea salt

1 cup hot water

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Toppings

10 pieces of pepperoni

4 tbsp of sauce

2 cups of mozzarella cheese

You can use whatever cheese or sauce you like and feel free to and any toppings.

Preheat over to 400 degrees.

Mix yeast, 1 cup of flour, and salt in a large mixing bowl. In a large measuring cup add 1 cup of hot water and 2 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil.  Add water and olive oil to dry ingredients and stir well.  Continue stirring while adding in the remaining 2 cups of flour until dough ball forms. Knead on a floured surface for 5 minutes and than let dough rest  for 15 minutes.  Split dough in half .  This recipe makes two hearts! Shape hearts on an olive oil coated pan.

Prebake hearts for 8 minutes than remove from oven, add toppings, and bake for 10 more minutes. Enjoy!

Happy Valentines Day!
