Love = Gin + Pizza

Sharing is caring!

Nothing says true love quite like gin and pizza…. well it’s definitely the way to my heart.

What better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than with a delicious heart shaped pizza and a glass of beautifully served Eden Mill’s Love Gin. 

Eden Mill’s Love Gin is made up at St Andrews in Scotland, it’s a unique recipe that includes marshmallow root, red rose petals, hibiscus flowers and goji berries.

It’s crystal clear with a delicate pink colouring – we think the floral aroma and mellow berry flavours are just perfect when served with Fever Tree tonic water and decorated with plump juicy raspberries and a stem of fresh rosemary.

Heart Shaped Pizza Ingredients

For the pizza dough…

  • 500g strong white flour – I use Tipo 00
  • 1 tsp fine salt
  • 1/2 tsp dried yeast – (not fast action)
  • 1 tbs olive oil – plus a little extra for greasing
  • 380ml warm – (not hot) water

For the pizza toppings…

  • 1 batch of tomato sauce or jar of flavoured passata – we use this tomato sauce
  • 200g goats cheese
  • 1 small red onion – sliced
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano – to sprinkle on before baking
  • pinch sea salt to sprinkle on before baking
  • 1 tbs olive oil – to drizzle on after baking

How to make heart shaped pizza

For the pizza dough…

  • Add the flour and salt – to a large mixing bowl
  • Add the yeast to the water – and stir.
  • Mix the pizza dough – make a well in the middle of the flour and pour in the tbs of olive oil and around 1/3 of the water, start to mix the dough by moving hand in circular motions in the well – bringing in more of the flour each rotation – continue adding the water and mixing the dough until you have a rough sticky dough.
  • Knead the dough – tip out onto a lightly floured surface and knead the dough for around 10-15 minutes until it’s a nice smooth elastic dough.
  • Let the pizza dough rise – lightly oil a mixing bowl and pop the dough in, cover the bowl in clingfilm and leave on the worktop for around 3-4 hours to rise.
  • Roll the pizza bases – remove the dough, knead for a few minutes and divide into 6 mini balls to roll into the pizza bases.

For the pizza

  • Heat the oven – heat the oven to 220C / 425F / Gas Mark 7
  • Roll the pizza bases – roll out a mini ball of dough so it’s nice and thin. Then if you want heart shaped pizza use kitchen scissors to snip the dough into a heart shape.
  • Get the pizza bases ready to top –pPlace the pizza base onto a lightly floured baking tray.
  • Add the tomato sauce – top with a couple of spoonfuls of tomato sauce – spread thinly to cover dough
  • Add the goats cheese – dot on some goats cheese.
  • Add the onion – scatter over some red onion.
  • Add the herbs and seasoning – scatter over some dried oregano and sea salt.
  • Cook in the oven for 7-8 minutes – or until the dough is cooked and the toppings starting to brown.
  • Remove from the oven – and drizzle with a little olive oil – maybe some fresh herbs or rocket leaves.
