Pizza seasoning is a versatile blend of herbs and spices that can be used to enhance the flavor of any pizza. It is typically made from oregano, garlic powder, basil, onion powder, and red pepper flakes. This combination of ingredients creates a savory and slightly spicy flavor profile that pairs well with all types of pizza toppings.

Using Pizza Seasoning

Pizza seasoning is incredibly easy to use. It can be added directly to the dough before baking or sprinkled on top of the pizza after it comes out of the oven. For a more intense flavor, the seasoning can also be mixed into pizza sauce prior to baking. (Add 1 tablespoon and taste before adding more seasoning.)

Storage

Seasonings should be stored in an airtight container away from heat and light to preserve its flavor. It will typically stay fresh for up to 6 months if stored properly.

What is the difference between Italian seasoning and pizza seasoning?

While Italian seasoning is made up of the same herbs and spices as pizza seasoning, the blends are usually tailored to different dishes. Italian seasoning generally contains more oregano and basil than pizza seasoning, which has a more balanced flavor profile. Additionally, Italian seasoning is often used to season other dishes such as pasta, whereas pizza seasoning is specifically designed for pizzas.
