Valentine Pizza and “chock-lit” February 14, 2006

Inspired by Jess of “Get Sconed!” and her heart-shaped vegan shortbread Valentine’s cookies, I decided to make a heart-shaped pizza for dinner. My pizza was not vegan, but it was vegetarian (and yummy). I tried out some veggie pepperoni for the first time and, while I didn’t like eating it right out of the package, it was pretty good on the pizza. In addition to the veggie pepperoni, I also put on shredded carrots, red swiss chard, tomato sauce and monterrey jack cheese. It was quite a tasty dinner. 🙂

Topped with all the fixins and ready to bake:

Recalling my disappointment last Valentine’s day when all Jody got me was a card, this year he got me a card AND a box of Belgian chocolates. 🙂 I was a happy girl. Chocolate (in any form) really is the key to my heart. I think it’s the key to Ava’s too. We let her have a few bites and soon after she said, “more chock-lit?”

After our feast of heart-shaped pizza and “chock-lit,” Jody and I watched Saving Face tonight. IMDB description: “A Chinese-American lesbian and her traditionalist mother are reluctant to go public with secret loves that clash against cultural expectations.” And one reviewer on Netflix said, “It’s a story of the relationship between a mother and daughter, and their search for love in the face of family and societial expectations.” I liked it. It was quite good and different from the norm.

Hope everyone had a nice Valentine’s day. 🙂

    That heart pizza is so cool! And points for Jody getting you BELGIAN chocolate! YUMMY!

  2. That is beautiful! Much more excited than my valentine’s day dinner (whole wheat ziti and asaragus). And monteray jack -so good – great choice for the pizza!
    Do you have a dough recipe to share? ; )
