Valentine's Day Sweetheart Mini Pizzas

Ingredients:

For the Pizza Dough:

  • 1 package of store-bought pizza dough or make your own
  • All-purpose flour for dusting

For the Cream Cheese Frosting:

  • 8 oz (1 cup) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

For Toppings:

  • Assorted fresh fruits like strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and kiwi
  • Heart-shaped cookie cutters
  • Sprinkles and mini chocolate chips for decoration
  • Honey or fruit preserves for drizzling

 

Directions:

  • Preheat your oven to the temperature specified on the pizza dough package.
  • Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface into a large rectangle, approximately 1/4 inch thick.  Then use heart-shaped cookie cutters to cut out individual heart-shaped mini pizza crusts. Place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Bake the heart-shaped crusts in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until they turn a beautiful golden brown. Allow them to cool completely.
  • In a mixing bowl, beat the softened cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract until the mixture is smooth and well combined. You can add a few drops of red food coloring if you're feeling fancy.
  • Spread a generous layer of cream cheese frosting over each heart-shaped crust, leaving a small border around the edges for that 'pizza crust' look.  Let your creative juices flow as you decorate your mini pizzas with assorted fresh fruits. The more colorful, the better!  Sprinkle colorful sprinkles and mini chocolate chips over the cream cheese and fruits for an extra dose of sweetness and fun.
  • Serve and enjoy!
