Heart-Shaped Pizza on the Grill for a Romantic Valentine's Day Dinner

Happy Valentine's Day, my dear pizza lovers! Today, we are going to be making a special Italian-style heart-shaped pizza that is perfect for a romantic evening with your sweetheart!

Here's a recipe for authentic Italian-style pizza dough that's designed to be cooked at high heat (around 500°F), resulting in a crispy crust:


  • 500 g (17.6 oz) of type 00 flour or all-purpose flour
  • 300 ml (10.1 oz) of lukewarm water
  • 10 g (0.35 oz) of salt
  • 7 g (0.25 oz) of dry yeast
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil


  1. In a large mixing bowl, add the flour and make a well in the center.
  2. In a separate bowl, dissolve the yeast in the lukewarm water and let it sit for about 5 minutes, until it begins to foam.
  3. Add the salt, olive oil, and yeast mixture to the well in the center of the flour.
  4. Using your hands or a fork, slowly mix the ingredients together until a dough forms.
  5. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead for about 8-10 minutes, until the dough is smooth and elastic.
  6. Place the dough in a large, greased bowl, cover with plastic wrap or a damp towel, and let it rise in a warm, draft-free place for about 1 hour, or until it has doubled in size.
  7. Once the dough has risen, turn it out onto a floured surface and divide it into two equal pieces.
  8. Shape each piece into a ball and cover with plastic wrap. Let the dough rest for about 15 minutes before using it to make your pizza.
