Share a heart-shaped pizza with those you love because the easiest way to someone’s heart is through good ole' gooey, cheesy pizza. Make your Valentine’s meal a success with our Pomì Pizza Sauce!!
Preheat the oven to 450° F and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
Lightly dust a clean work surface with flour and turn your dough onto it. Use your hands to press the dough into a circle, about 12” in diameter. To shape it into a heart, gently pull the bottom center of the dough down to form a point. Pinch together the top center of the dough to create the two sides. Transfer the heart-shaped dough to the prepared pan. Brush the surface of the dough with olive oil and bake for 5-7 minutes, until lightly browned.
After par-baking, remove the dough from the oven and spoon Pomì Pizza Sauce over the surface. Spread into an even layer leaving about an 1” of dough around the edges. Top with mozzarella slices, and brush the outside of the crust with melted butter. Bake for 15-17 minutes, until the crust is deeply browned and the cheese is bubbly.
Remove the pizza from the oven, sprinkle with fresh basil leaves and serve immediately.
