I wasn’t planning to make a heart shaped pizza list this year — a lot of other local outlets do their own version now — but then, while scrolling Instagram, as one does, I changed my mind.
There’s three reasons, really: Wednesday is National Pizza Day, next week is Valentine’s Day, and I saw a heart-shaped pizza on Mootz‘ Instagram, and I really wanted to feature it because their pizza is so dang good and they’re new to the locally-owned, heart-shaped pizza lineup.
So, without further ado, here’s an SBH classic, the Omaha Heart Shaped Pizza List, updated for 2022. Happy Valentine’s Day.
❤️ Godfather’s Pizza will have a large pie available through Valentine’s Day at select locations. For more information, call your local store.
❤️ At Mama’s Pizza, large heart-shaped pies will be on the menu at its three Omaha locations: 715 N. Saddle Creek Road, 8146 S. 96th St. and 15615 Pacific St.
❤️ Marco’s Pizza is offering a medium-sized, heart-shaped pizza and double chocolate brownie combo through Feb. 15 at all three Omaha locations: 1904 N. 168th St., 16718 Harrison St. and in Bellevue at 709 Galvin Rd S.
❤️ The Mootz food truck will be open for business on Feb. 14 near the Aksarben Village Dog Park. Diners can order any pizza they want in a heart shape. They’re still figuring out the day’s special flavor, but will for sure be serving pepperoni, cheese, classic Margherita and jalapeño and Oaxaca cheese. (Hello to that last topping combo!)
❤️ Papa Murphy’s Take and Bake has a “Heartbreaker” pie in both cheese and pepperoni for $10 each. A $14 combo includes one pizza and an order of chocolate chip cookie dough.
❤️ Papa John’s has thin crust, one-topping, heart-shaped pizzas available Feb. 7-14 for $11.99. The one topping pies arrive unsliced.
❤️ Pizza Hut will have its heart-shaped pizzas available Feb. 8-14 at participating locations for $11.99. A bundle for $16.99 includes an ultimate chocolate chip cookie or a triple-chocolate brownie.
❤️ Bellevue’s Papa Reno will serve heart-shaped pizzas available through Valentine’s Day. To order call 402-505-7888. The restaurant is at 3604 Twin Creek Drive.
❤️ Valentino’s will have its “love at first bite” heart-shaped pizza available for Valentine’s Day: a medium heart-shaped pizza with the diners’ choice of toppings. The base pie is $17.99, and extra toppings are more. The special is available Feb. 14 only, and quantities are limited. For more information, or to find a location near you, visit valentinos.com.
❤️ And finally, the Omaha OG. All four locations of Zio’s Pizzeria will once again be selling heart-shaped pizzas, and diners can also pre-order a pie. The pies come in one size — large — and are priced according to the toppings the diners choose. Call ahead to order the pizza to go or eat in at one of the four Omaha locations: 1109 Howard St., 7834 Dodge St., 12997 West Center Road, or 18110 Wright St.
