Heart-shaped pizzas bring in the dough for a good cause this Valentine’s Day

Posted: Updated:
OHIO - A pizza shop owner in Ohio has come up with a unique way to raise funds for the American Heart Association.  Every year around Valentine's Day his shop bakes heart-shaped pizzas.  Those pizzas do more than provide tasty take-out.  One dollar from each pizza sold goes to the American Heart Association.

“It gives us an opportunity to donate back to the American Heart Association too,” said Dom Defelice, owner, Defelice Pizza.  “It's actually your money that goes to them, you know, we just collect it for them.”

In the past 30 years the owner has raised more than $35,000 for the fight against heart disease.
