Heart Shaped Shrimp Lover’s Pizza

If you love baking homemade pizza but are short on time this Valentine’s our Heart Shaped Shrimp Pizza Recipe is easy and quick to make.

If you don’t mind taking a bit more time cooking pizza for your sweetheart follow the simple pizza dough recipe that follows and add your own favorite toppings.

Though the shrimp seafood pizza and heart-shaped pizza crust recipes are featured for Valentine’s Day, you can make them anytime you want to add a little extra “Love” to your homemade pizza!



1 large Pizza shell; pre-baked or Foccacia bread
1/3 cup Pizza sauce
1/2 cup Mozzarella or Jack cheese; grated
12 large Shrimp; cooked
1 medium Red Bell Pepper
3 Pieces artichoke hearts; frozen and thawed, sliced
Olive oil
Minced Fresh Basil or Dried Basil

Cooking Directions:

Trim the pizza shell(s) or Foccacia bread into a heart shape, place on wood pizza peel before transferring to a baking stone. Spread pizza sauce on shell just about to the edge.

 Sprinkle cheese over sauce, not quite to edge of sauce. Place shrimp, in pairs, tails touching, to make hearts, on top of cheese. Do the same with some slices of red bell pepper, using the top, where it curves, for the top of the heart. Put a few slices of artichoke heart here and there. Drizzle a little olive oil over top. Sprinkle with minced basil or dried basil.

Bake at 400º F degrees until cheese melts and pizza is piping hot. (About 10 minutes.) Safely remove with your pizza peel, let cool a moment and serve.


Homemade Pizza Dough: Heart-Shaped Pizza Crust


1 cup water
2 tablespoons milk
2 teaspoons sugar
1 1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon shortening
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon durum semolina (or corn meal)
1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
2 cups unbleached bread flour
1 1/4 teaspoon yeast

Cooking Directions:

Place water, milk, sugar, salt, shortening and olive oil in bowl of food processor and pulse to dissolve sugar and salt.

Add yeast, semolina or corn meal, bread flour and all purpose flour. Process until a soft ball forms. Remove from machine and allow to rest, covered with a towel, about 45 minutes.

OR to make dough by hand: Use only all-purpose flour. Place water, milk, sugar, salt, shortening and olive oil in bowl and dissolve sugar and salt. Stir in yeast, semolina or corn meal, all purpose flour and knead to form a soft, but not-too sticky dough (8-10 minutes). Allow to rest, covered with a towel about 45 minutes.

Deflate dough very gently before using and allow it to rest 15 minutes more before using in a recipe. You may refrigerate dough in an oiled plastic bag for up to two days for use later.

Shape pizza dough into a heart. Top with your favorite sauce and toppings. Bake in a hot oven 425 – 450°F. for 15 – 20 minutes.
