To make your own mini pizzas, you’ll need:

How to Make Heart-Shaped Pizza
Start by rolling out your refrigerated pizza dough. If you don’t have a rolling pin you can press it out by hand. Use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut out individual hearts from the dough.
Follow the instructions on the dough you purchased, but it will most likely say that you should pre-bake for a few minutes before adding sauce and toppings.
Tip: Take your leftover dough and twist it into knots. Coat with a little garlic butter for some tasty garlic knots!
Once your dough hearts are pre-baked, remove them from the oven and add a spoon of pizza sauce to each heart.
Cut hearts out of the sliced mozzarella to place on top of your pizza sauce. Finish by adding your favorite pizza toppings. (If you love pepperoni, mini pepperoni work well for this recipe.
Bake your mini heart pizzas according to the directions on your pizza dough, then enjoy your special pizza night with the family!
