Heart shaped pizza for valentine’s day, Pizza recipes

Heart shaped pizza as the name suggests it valentine’s day special recipe that can turn as a perfect dinner on a valentine’s day night. Pizza is always my go to recipe as it is super simple to make and at the same time it is not time consuming too. Most importantly you can add your favorite toppings and change its shape according to the occasion. For me a simple pizza and a dessert shall set my dinner table right. Actually the posts were not planned earlier but still looks alike valentine’s day series as the tomorrow post will be about an interesting dessert for valentine’s day. So coming back to the recipe. Usually I use Active yeast for pizza (The one that is dissolved in water then used in flour) but this time I used instant yeast which reduces the wait time. Though the pizza turned out perfect the dough dint double very much may be I dint give it proper rest time or used a new brand for the first time. But the pizza dint have any issues and it turned out as usual super hit. Also I used colorful capsicum for the pizza but you can mushrooms, paneer, olives, corn etc to make it more appetizing. So if you are looking for a perfect valentine dinner then this recipe should do the job good. So lets get to the making!
