Why You Should Make Homemade Pizza Seasoning
It’s no secret that I love making homemade seasoning blends. It’s the best way to add extra flavor to any dish and you can customize the blends to your liking! Now, if your family is as pizza obsessed as mine is, this pizza seasoning is something you’re going to always want on hand. Have you ever made a homemade pizza and wondered why it doesn’t taste quite like your favorite pizza spot? It’s probably because it’s missing these tasty herbs!
Pizza seasoning is similar to Italian seasoning because it’s made with things like basil, thyme, and oregano. What sets it apart, though, is its amazing savory flavor from the addition of garlic powder and dried onion. This pizza seasoning recipe is also made with red pepper flakes to add a little bit of heat! The end result is so tasty, sprinkle it on top of your favorite pizzas and prepare to be amazed.
Like other homemade seasoning blends, pizza seasoning is super customizable. So if you see something you’re not a fan of, use less of it or leave it out entirely! All of the measurements I used can be found in the recipe card below.
- Oregano: A bold herb that adds a punch of flavor!
- Basil: Sweet and aromatic, basil is the best addition to any pizza.
- Thyme: Similar to oregano, thyme adds a pop of fresh, minty flavor.
- Dried Onion Flakes: To give your pizza seasoning the perfect savory flavor and balance out the herbs. You can also use onion powder if you don’t have any onion flakes on hand.
- Garlic Powder: Because you can never go wrong with garlic, especially when it comes to pizza!
- Garlic Salt: For some extra savory goodness.
- Red Pepper Flakes: To add a kick of heat. Like it hot? Add more! Not a fan of spice? Omit it entirely.
