Valentine's Day Fun for the family!

Looking for something fun to do with the whole family for Valentine's Day?  

Why not make your own pizzas?

1 (12 inch) pre-made pizza crust or refrigerated pizza dough

For the Marinara Sauce:
1 tablespoon STAR Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 (24-ounce) jar crushed or diced tomatoes
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
Any other toppings of your choice: Cara Mia Artichokes, STAR Olives, mushrooms, sausage, basil, etc.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

To make the marinara sauce, heat olive oil and garlic in a medium saucepan over medium heat. When garlic begins to sizzle, add tomatoes, salt and Italian seasoning (try to stand back a bit, as the sauce may splatter). Simmer on low for 10 minutes.

If using a pre-made crust, trim it into a heart shape.  If using dough, shape it into a heart then brush the pizza dough or crust with STAR Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Spread the marinara sauce evenly on the pizza crust.  Arrange the toppings and mozzarella cheese on top of the marinara.

Bake in the preheated oven until the cheese is bubbly, about 20 minutes. Remove from oven and serve.
