This yummy recipe by Kristin Fitch & Sharon Pierce McCullough will have your kids flooding you with kisses on Valentine's Day! This recipe is kid approved and easy to make.

For the dough:

1 pkg yeast

1 Tbsp sugar

1 cup warm water

1 tsp salt

3 Tbsp olive oil

1 ¾ cup white flour

1 ¼ cup whole wheat flour


For the filling:

Mozzarella cheese

Marinara sauce

Turkey pepperoni


Combine yeast, sugar and warm water and let set for 5 minutes.  Mix remaining ingredients and then add yeast mixture.  Let dough rise, in a warm place, for about 1-2 hours, until double in size. 


Roll out a small portion of the dough at a time, cutting two equal sized hearts.  Fill middle with a thin layer of marinara sauce, turkey pepperoni, and cheese and then layer the top with another heart and crimp the edges together with a fork.  Set on baking tray.  Bake at 400 for 10-15 minutes until lightly browned.  Test to make sure dough is done baking.  Serve with marinara sauce for dipping.
