A pizza straight from the heart. Let’s be honest. Pizza is the key to anyone’s heart. And with our DeLallo Pizza Dough Kit, it’s easy to create authentic Italian pizzeria-style pizza for your sweetheart. Who wants a delivery man interrupting your evening in? Load it up with your valentine’s favorite toppings and make it extra “cheesy” by shaping the pizza dough like a heart. Truly romantic.
