Step 1: Gather Your Ingredients!

1 store bought uncooked pizza dough (13.8 oz), or any homemade pizza dough will work (try gluten free!)

1 can of pizza sauce, or homemade pizza sauce

1 package of pepperoni

1 package of pizza blend cheese, or whatever cheese you prefer

Flour for dusting

Oil to grease the sheet


Cutting board

Large flat baking sheet

Optional- Silicone baking sheet

Small heart shaped cookie cutter

Rolling Pin


Measuring cups


Step 2: Prepare the Dough

Wash your hands!

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit

Make sure that the place that you will be rolling out your dough is nice and clean

Take a pinch of flour and dust your rolling surface

Place the dough on the surface and put flour on the rolling pin to avoid sticking

Roll from the inside of the dough out, making it around 1/4" thick and 11" by 11"

Flour the top of the dough, and fold in half

Apply slight pressure on the dough with the end of a spoon to create a half heart outline

Make two parallel cuts on the outline, one on the top and one on the bottom

Then carefully cut the curve

You can make your heart as big as you want, I made mine around 9 inches tall

Unfold your dough, and place on a greased cookie sheet, or a sheet with a silicone mat on top.

Bake the dough with nothing on it for 8 minutes, then take out of the oven

Step 3: The Toppings

Take out the pepperoni, cutting board, and heart shaped cookie cutter

Stack up the pepperoni and center the cutter over them

Press down until the cutter cuts through all of the pepperoni

Spread 2 tablespoons of sauce on the cooked dough, but feel free to add as little or as much as you would like

Add a generous amount of cheese on the pizza and arrange the pepperoni on top of the cheese.

Bake for 5-9 minutes and enjoy!
