I don’t do a LOT for most holiday’s. But I grew up with colored food. Pink milk, eggs, etc… I already shared my pink scones and for dinner this weekend we decide to go with a pink heart shaped pizza for dinner!
I MEANT to dye the dough too, but forgot to add the red until it was too late. I LOVE my bread machine pizza dough recipe, it’s PERFECTION. The key to getting colored dough (which I’ve done for quite a few holiday’s including our green shamrock St Patrick day pizza a few years ago!)
Then top with whatever you like! I saute chicken with olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic (we love garlic) and add that first. For the kids we add green onions and that’s mostly it. For us big kids we love artichoke hearts, spinach, green onions and mushrooms.
To bind it all together top it with grated mozzarella and grated parmesan cheese! Slide it back into the oven (onto the pizza stone) and bake another 5-6 mins until the edges start to brown. Let it cool a bit, cut and serve!
You could of course use a red based sauce and pepperoni and stuff for a valentines pizza, but we love our chicken alfredo pizza and the kids love helping me roll it out into fun holiday shapes!
