Pizza Seasoning

Pizzas are our love language in this house and we love it all…..whether it’s from our favorite pizza joint or a homemade Margherita pizza fresh off the grill. They’re always a crowd pleaser even for the picky eaters here.

The one thing I DO love about going out for pizza is the seasonings bar and the one option I go for without fail is the “house” Pizza Seasoning blend. It’s loaded with herbs, spices and bits of garlic adding TONS of flavor to each and every thing I use it on.

What is Pizza Seasoning

If you’ve never tried an all-in-one Pizza seasoning before, get ready to have your mind blown.

Pizza Seasoning is like nothing else…well, that’s not true. It’s very much like Italian Seasoning that I put in just about every recipe I make. BUT it’s like Italian Seasoning that’s a bit extra.

It contains dried basil, dried oregano, onion flakes, garlic flakes, fennel, smoked paprika (my secret weapon when it comes to epic flavor), and crushed red pepper.

Of course, you can add whatever you want to make your’s a signature spice seasoning, if you wish. Just one word of warning, I advise you not to add cheese because the shelf stability goes right out the window….even though you’ll go through pounds of this stuff every single month.

How To Make It

Really, this is super simple to make and I recommend you making a giant batch of Pizza Seasoning. Seriously, go to Costco, buy the bulk spices and whip up a ton of it.

  1. Combine all your ingredients in a big bowl.
  2. Whisk together to combine.
  3. Transfer to an airtight container.
  4. Store in a cool, dry place like your kitchen pantry.
  5. Top ALL THE THINGS with your new seasoning blend.

How To Use It

Sure, it’s Pizza Seasoning so you will want to sprinkle it on your favorite homemade pizzas BUT it’s also amazing in a grilled cheese sandwich or sprinkled on your favorite salad. We, especially, love it on our favorite Air Fryer Pizza!

You can also use it to add flavor to a Stromboli, add some sparkle to your Spaghetti Sauce or toss it in with your pasta.

It is really a multi-purpose Italian seasoning you can put on just about anything you can think of. Burgers, anyone?
