1 cup warm water (105ºF-115ºF)

2 1/4 to 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter with Olive Oil & Sea Salt, melted, slightly cooled

2 teaspoons coarse grain salt

2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh garlic

1 tablespoon sesame seeds

1/2 teaspoon pepper


1 (7-ounce) package pepperoni slices

1 medium green bell pepper

1 (15-ounce) can pizza sauce

16 ounces (4 cups) shredded mozzarella cheese

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Dissolve yeast in warm water in bowl; let stand 5 minutes.

  2. STEP 2

    Add 1 1/2 cups flour, 3 tablespoons melted Butter with Olive Oil & Sea Salt, salt and garlic; beat at medium speed until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour until dough is easy to handle.

  3. STEP 3

    Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface; knead 5 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Place into greased bowl; turn greased-side up. Cover; let rise in warm place 1 hour or until double in size. (Dough is ready if indentation remains when touched.)

  4. STEP 4

    Cut pepperoni and green pepper into shapes using small heart-shaped cookie cutter.

  5. STEP 5

    Punch down dough; divide in half. Let stand 10 minutes.

  6. STEP 6

    Heat oven to 425°F.

  7. STEP 7

    Place 1 portion dough onto greased baking sheet; press, with lightly floured hands, into 12-inch heart shape. Repeat with remaining dough. Brush crusts with remaining butter. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and pepper.

  8. STEP 8

    Bake on lowest rack of oven 10 minutes. Spread with pizza sauce; sprinkle with cheese. Top with pepperoni and green pepper cut-outs. Continue baking 10-15 minutes or until crust is lightly browned on edges.
