Homemade Pizza Seasoning

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.

    I really like to make my own seasoning blends whenever possible, I think they taste better and I know they don’t have a bunch of extra salt and/or preservatives. This sounds like a great seasoning blend for pizza! Thanks for sharing on Foodie Friends Friday!

      Thank you!
      The spin through the spice grinder makes the herb pieces smaller, and they seem blend into the cheese pretty well.
      But I am working on a pizza sauce recipe that uses the Homemade Pizza seasoning right in it. I should have that posted next week!
