I heart pizza

One of our family traditions is having homemade pizza, usually Saturday evenings. The pizza is fun to make, even though it takes some work. Making sure the water is the right temperature for the yeast, kneading the dough and waiting for it to rise. The fun part of the project is picking out toppings, tossing the pie in the air and assembling the pizza.

Here is a link to a good pizza crust recipe; Jays Signature Pizza Crust

Since today is Valentines Day we decided to make one of the pizzas in a heart shape. Spark is putting the sauce on the pizza.

The finished pie.

This batch of dough made two pizzas and the scraps from making the heart became a single serving thin crust cheese pizza for Spark. Making the homemade pizza cuts down on the cost quite a bit, although the toppings still cost a lot. The heart shape turned out so good we may need to have a shamrock pizza for St Patricks Day.
