Homemade Pizza Seasoning

The key to making the tastiest pizza is using the freshest ingredients and the right herbs and spices to enhance the taste. The two classic pizza seasonings oregano and basil, 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 feeling 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.

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 a pinch into the dough.

“I now use this in place of Italian seasoning in many recipes, there is no comparison”
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 bread sticks, and I even use it in bread dough. The uses for this mix are endless.
