Omgsh I love cute food and the word ‘pizzetta’ translates to ‘lil’ cute pizza’ (…or something like that). So I’m feeling these.
My friend Morgan (who is a world traveler and I refer to her as my “ball of sunshine” because she is so full of life) gave me the idea for these baby pizzas.
I’m calling these pizzette the fanciest bagel bites ever. Do you remember bagel bites? I remember eating them in high school. I was always more of a pizza roll than a bagel bite person, but you do you.
Have you tried Jar Goods before? I feel like I saw them on social media A LOT before I tried them and now I’m hooked. I like the packaging (simple graphics + tall jar) and I’m loving using their Vodka sauce for pizza sauce. And if you look closely at the jar in the first photo you will see how the jar calls the sauce “very special” vodka sauce. I’m all about giving food more adjectives…so clearly this sauce and I were MFEO Sleepless in Seattle-style.
These pizzette aren’t hard to make. The most time consuming part is making the pizza dough, so if you’re living a busy life just by some store-bought pizza dough and they’ll be ready to eat in no time. All you do is get some heart-shaped cookie cutters and cut out some dough hearts and then cut out some smaller cheese hearts and bake. My cheese didn’t stay in a heart shape, but we can use our imagination to pretend it still looks like a heart.
So earlier this week I shared my heart-shaped egg-in-da-hole quesadilla, now I’m sharing this baby pizza heart shaped dish, AND I think I’ve got one more sweeter heart-shaped recipe coming your way before Valentine’s Day.
Cute heart pizzettas for Valentine's Day.
Yield: makes 25-30 pizzettas if you use 3" wide heart shaped cutout
1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
scant 1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon rapid-rise yeast
2 tbsp olive oil
1 cup cold water
1 tbsp honey
Jar Goods Classic Vodka Sauce
The night before, mix up your dough. In the bowl on an electric mixer, combine flours, salt and yeast. Add in olive oil, water and honey. Mix on medium speed with your dough hook for 5-7 minutes. Dough should be a bit wet and sticky. Cut dough in two and place them on a greased baking sheet and loosely cover. Let rise in the fridge overnight.
Allow dough to sit out at room temperature for 2 hours before rolling out. When you're ready to make your pizzettas, preheat oven to 425ºF. Then roll out dough super thin. Use a <3 shaped cookie cutter to cut out heart shapes. Slice a mozzarella log into thin circles. Press the mozzarella slice flat and use a smaller heart shaped cookie cutter to cut our yo' cheese. Top heart pizza dough with Jar Good Sauce and heart shaped cheese. Bake for 10 minutes. Sprinkle with dried oregano and serve!
If you don't need 25-30 pizzettas, freeze half your pizza dough to use later.
