Valentine Pizza Recipe

Valentine Pizza

This yummy pepperoni, sausage, & mushroom pizza can easily be made at home for a fun date night in.


1 loaf Bridgford Frozen Bread Dough, thawed

3 oz (8 slices) Pepperoni

½ cup fresh mushrooms, thinly sliced

½ cup red onion, thinly sliced

1 tbsp olive oil

1 tsp garlic powder

1 cup Mozzarella cheese, grated

¼ cup Parmesan cheese

grated 4 small links sweet Italian sausage, cooked and thinly sliced

½ cup canned Italian plum tomatoes, drained and chopped

2 tbsp fresh basil



Sauté mushrooms and onion in 1 tablespoon olive oil and ½ teaspoon garlic powder (save the remaining ½ teaspoon for later) until onion begins to turn transparent (just a few minutes). Drain excess liquid; set aside. On a lightly floured surface, shape dough into a ball, then roll out to a 9-inch circle. Place dough to fit in a greased heart shaped pan (9-12-inches). If you do not have a heart shaped pan, use a 12-inch circular pizza pan or cookie sheet or cut a large heart shape from a 12-inch circle of parchment paper and place on a greased cookie sheet. Pierce dough several times with fork. Bake in preheated 375° oven for 5 minutes. Increase oven temperature to 425°. Top dough with both cheeses, the remaining ½ teaspoon garlic powder and rest of toppings. Bake at 425° for 15-20 minutes or until crust is golden brown and cheese is bubbling. Remove from pan to wire rack and serve.
