Ah, Valentine’s Day, that special time of year where we pull out all the stops in order to prove how much we love our significant others. Before we had children, my wife and I would do spontaneous things like hitting the road for a last minute Valentine’s Day trip or booking a staycation with a fancy room service meal, with dessert!
These days, however, between finding a sitter and trying to be as frugal as possible, we are finding that Valentine’s Day has taken on a different shape. That’s not to say it is a bad thing. Just, different. Instead of it being just the two of us, we like to find things that we can do as a family. So, when I told the kids that Boston Pizza offers a heart-shaped pizza which will only be served on Valentine’s Day, our dinner plans were covered.
The best part about spending Valentine’s Day at Boston Pizza is that $1 from every heart-shaped pizza sold will support Boston Pizza Foundation Future Prospects, which is committed to connecting kids with role models in their communities to ensure they have a bright future. Boston Pizza hopes to raise at least $520,000 for Boston Pizza Foundation Future Prospects with the 2016 Valentine’s Day heart-shaped pizza program and we are excited to be one of the families contributing to the goal.
Now, while we will be ordering the largest heart-shaped pizza that Boston Pizza will make us, they will also be available in small and medium size (excluding thin crust), with classic or multigrain dough, and can be ordered for dine-in, take-out or delivery in any of Boston Pizza’s gourmet and create-your-own pizza varieties.
Oh, also, from now to February 14, guests can also purchase a Boston Pizza Peel and Win Heart for a minimum donation of $2 where everyone will have the chance to win either $2 off dessert, $5 off $25 on Takeout and Delivery, a free starter, Panookie or Flatbread Pizzatizer. PS – I asked Boston Pizza and they assured me that the Flatbread Pizzatizer is an appetizer and NOT a gun that shoots flatbread pizzas to your table, although I am still hoping for the latter.
So if you are still trying to figure out what to do with your family this Valentine’s Day, why not head to Boston Pizza to treat yourself to a heart-shaped pizza and support a good cause while you’re at it? Maybe they’ll even let you use the pizzatizer!
