Cute Lil Valentine Recipe to do with your Kids!

Kids can help: Filling the dough and crimping edges.

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.

NOW FOR THOSE WHO WANT A QUICKER can always buy the good ol' Pillsbury dough and make it a tad quicker....we know our children are all about instant gratification :0!
