Shakespeare might have said “if music be the food of love, play on” but here at DeliVita, we prefer to think of pizza as the perfect food of love.
After all, it’s the ideal food for sharing snuggled up together, there’s no slaving over a hot stove for hours and there’s very little washing up to do when you’d rather be getting hot and steamy in a very different way.
This Valentine’s day, why not give your beau a little boost in the love department with an aphrodisiac-packed pizza? Here’s our list of perfect Valentine’s pizza toppings, guaranteed to get anybody in the mood!
No, we’re not suggesting popping these green spears on your pizza because they have a certain, ahem, phallic quality to them. Asparagus also is packed with Vitamin E, essential for stimulating hormone production.
Spice things up with a sprinkling of red-hot chilli! Chilli turns up your body temperature, gets your heart pumping, increases blood flow and stimulates endorphins. Is there a more perfect Valentine’s pizza topping?!
These little golden gems make a delicious addition to a wood-fired pizza any day of the week. But you should seriously consider adding them to your Valentine’s meal. They’re high in energizing, sex-drive boosting zinc.
A special occasion pizza isn’t properly dressed without a scattering of fresh, green rocket. As well as looking lovely, this peppery leaf has been rumoured to have aphrodisiac qualities for millennia.
The minerals and antioxidants found in rocket can block environmental contaminants that might negatively harm libido.
Add some to your tomato sauce base or sprinkle it over once your pizza’s cooked. The ancient Greeks believed olive oil made their men more virile. It’s worth a try!
And, for the perfect pudding?
Go for something indulgent and chocolatey. Chocolate causes a spike in the feel-good hormone dopamine, inducing feelings of pleasure.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
