For the Cheesy Romantic

Chicago is a city that definitely loves its pizza. So it came as no surprise to learn that at least one pizzeria-restaurant in the city's suburbs celebrates Valentine's day by making heart-shaped pizzas. A suburban newspaper reports:

At Nonna Silvia's Trattoria and Pizzeria in Park Ridge, heart-shaped pizzas have become a Valentine's Day tradition -- ever since a customer requested one for his wife nine years ago, said owner and chef John Giannini.

... "A lot of husbands will bring a pizza home for their wives. It's a nice touch," Giannini said.

The pizzas are hand-rolled just like any other that the restaurant serves up, and a variety of toppings are available.

... "The dough is our canvas, the sauce is our paint," he said.
You gotta love that statement.

For romantic diners who aren't in the mood for pizza, Nonna Silvio's offers another option: red, heart-shaped raviolis.
