• 1 pound frozen bread dough, thawed according to package directions
  • 8 ounce can tomato sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 pound grated mozzarella cheese
  • your favorite toppings, such as sliced pepperoni, cooked and crumbled sausage, sliced olives, sliced mushrooms, pineapple chunks, Canadian bacon, etc.


Preheat oven to 475 degrees. Spray two large baking sheets with non-stick cooking spray. Sprinkle with corn meal to dust the pans lightly. On lightly floured surface, divide bread dough into four equal pieces. Using rolling pin, flatten each dough portion into a thin disk. With your hands, reshape disk into a heart shape. Place two dough hearts on each baking sheet. In small mixing bowl, combine tomato sauce, basil, oregano, and garlic powder. Stir to mix well. Divide sauce amongst four hearts, spreading to edges with the back of a spoon. Sprinkle a small handful of cheese over sauce on each heart. Layer the toppings of your choice. Add more cheese according to taste. Bake in preheated oven for 10-15 minutes, or until crust is crisp and cheese melted and lightly browned. Rotate baking sheets halfway through cooking to ensure even baking.
