I started using homemade pizza seasoning to sprinkle on my homemade pizza crusts prior to baking, but I fell in love with the flavor. 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 bread sticks, 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.

- 1/4 tsp dried thyme
- 1/2 tsp coarse sea salt
