Simple Valentine’s Day Appetizer: Heart-Shaped Mini Pizzas

Posted on

 

You can use a heart-shaped cookie cutter and make just about anything a festive Valentine’s Day dish, snack or goodie.  This appetizer is a perfect example.  Just cook up a favorite thin-crust pizza (homemade or frozen, like this California Pizza Kitchen Barbecue Chicken Thin Crust Pizza) and cut it into as many heart-shaped pieces (pressing hard with a heart cookie cutter) as you can get out of it.  Kids will love making (and eating) these as well.
