It may sound cliché, but there's no doubt about it: Italian cuisine is the stuff of romance. So instead of slaving over a hot stove while your date awkwardly waits around, offer to make a pizza pie together! Make the pizza from scratch, using fresh ingredients like mozzarella, pepperoni slices and herbs. If you really want to up the ante, bring a little taste of Italy to your home by setting the romantic scene: play opera arias on the stereo or curl up on the couch to watch La Dolce Vita. When you final sit down to eat that pizza you prepared together, you'll feel like you’re dining waterside along the Grand Canal in Venice. That beats just ordering from Dominoes down the street, doesn't it? Buon appetito!
