In place of the usual chocolates and roses often purchased in lieu of Valentine's Day, Boston Pizza is giving people the option to shower their loved one with heart-shaped pizzas. Not everyone has a sweet tooth or loves receiving stuffed animals as an adult. And as the sentiment goes, the way to a person's heart is often through his or her stomach.
Yet Boston Pizza's heart-shaped pizzas provide more than an alternative to traditional Valentine's Day gifts. A dollar from every heart-shaped pizza purchased on February 14 will be donated to the Boston Pizza Foundation Future Prospects, a charity helping youth across Canada benefit from positive mentorships. The heart-shaped pizzas are available in small and medium sizes with any of the gourmet and create-your-own pizza varieties. This allows the giver to personalize the meal for his or her significant other.
