Homemade Pizza Seasoning

Sharing is caring!

Traditional Italian Herbs are combined with onion flakes, garlic powder, thyme, rosemary and red pepper flakes in this spice mix to take your pizza to the next level.

I love making homemade pizza, it is an inexpensive alternative to visiting our local pizza parlor. But I couldn’t help but feel something was missing…I was using a good sauce, and fresh cheese, but for some reason, my pizzas seemed somewhat boring, and maybe even a little uninspired. Until I found this recipe for Homemade Pizza seasoning.

What is Pizza Seasoning?

Homemade Pizza seasoning is simply a blend of traditional Italian spices, which complements pizza remarkably well.

The more I used this homemade seasoning blend, the more I appreciated the mix of flavors. I now use this in place of Italian seasoning in many recipes, there is no comparison. Italian seasoning is flat and lacking compared to this blend. I add a teaspoon in the ricotta mixture for my stuffed shells, it is always included in my Baked Ziti, sprinkled on homemade breadsticks, and I even use it in bread dough. The uses for this mix are endless.

Homemade Pizza Seasoning stores very well in an airtight container, go ahead and mix some up in advance you will be surprised how much you reach for it while cooking and baking! I like to use a shaker lid on a mason jar, so I can flip the top open and quickly measure out exactly what I need.

How do I use homemade pizza seasoning?

I started using homemade pizza seasoning to sprinkle on my homemade pizza crusts prior to baking, but quickly expanded my usage of it. I now incorporate it into my homemade sauce or even add a little into the dough ingredients in my bread maker to bake the flavor right into the dough.

would this work on a white pizza? olive oil, cheese, basil and this spice combo?

People wanting to avoid cilantro will use Italian parsley with stems removed = flat-leaf parsley.
