Homemade Pizza Seasoning Recipe
Add epic flavor to your pizzas, whether homemade or take out, with this easy Homemade Pizza Seasoning! An Italian seasoning blend of dried herbs, spices and garlic, this easy pizza seasoning will be a staple on your dinner table!
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.
- Combine all your ingredients in a big bowl.
- Whisk together to combine.
- Transfer to an airtight container.
- Store in a cool, dry place like your kitchen pantry.
- 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?

No seasoning ratios. Wouldn’t even call this a recipe.
Hi Derek, there’s a full recipe card at the bottom of the post that you can print out for your reference.
Thank you – very nice balance of flavors.
Love from India
your presentation and recipe look excellent and I like to prepare them for myself.
I loved to eat Pizza more but it is not good to have Pizza twice a month.
I will go with your recipe then update you
How id this seasoning to be used? I read your section on what it can be used in or on, but I’m unsure of how its used. For example, for a pizza, is the entire amount, once mixed, to be used mixed into the pizza sauce? Is this seasoning quantity for several uses such as only a teaspoon or Tablespoon should be used mixed in the sauce? Does a certain amount get sprinkled on the top of a pizza? I apologize for my confusion & thank you in advance for clarifying this for me.
You sprinkle it on like a seasoning. The amount used is up to you, really. Think of it like a seasoning salt or like the parmesan cheese at a pizza shop.
