As you already know—and either love or loath—Valentine's Day is just a few days away. If you haven't already picked up a chocolate (or *sigh* a giant teddy bear), then you're probably looking for a last-minute gift. Hell, even if you've already bought a dump truck's worth of chocolate, you need to drop everything and get to Pizza Hut.
That's because the coveted heart-shaped pizza is finally back at the Hut. The limited-edition pie is formed into the shape of a heart (of course), and is roughly the same size as a standard medium pizza. You can top the heart anyway you like, so get creative.
The cute 'za costs about $9.99, although prices may vary from store to store. If you're feeling extra romantic, you can opt for Pizza Hut's Valentine's Bundle, which includes the lovey-dovey pizza and your choice of dessert for just $13.99. The V-Day themed food is only available now through February 14, so get to planning!
If you're rearing to get your hands on heart-shaped dinner for your sweetie, then we have amazing news. There's not one but two spots that will deliver for you and your boo: Papa John's and Buca di Beppo.
If you're looking for pizza but prefer Papa John's, you can still partake in a lovey dovey pie. Unlike Pizza Hut's, this baby comes on a thin crust , is accompanied by a brownie, and will set you back about $15 with one topping. If you're having a dinner for two, you can also get two medium one-topping Heart Pizzas on thin for $18.
But it's Buca di Beppo that's pulling out all the stops. In addition to a heart-shaped pizza, the Italian chain is serving up heart-shaped lasagna. That's right, your favorite cheesy pasta dish is now even more lovable. Bon appétit with your boo!

That’s Amore! Heart-Shaped Pizza in the Poconos
PARADISE TOWNSHIP -- Kasa's Pizza is serving up a recipe of love! The shop is making heart-shaped pizzas all day for Valentine's Day.
It's a tradition that has grown over the years.
"It's really neat because it puts a smile on everyone's face," said owner David Buchter. "Then some people ask to put something on the pizza, write stuff in pepperoni. It gets a little crazy but we do our best!"
The pizza shop is also partnering with local businesses selling chocolate-covered strawberries from Callie's Candy Kitchen, cheesecake from Pocono Cheesecake Factory, and flowers from the Flower Shop, Village Crafts and Collectables.
