My Pizza Spice Recipe

Pizza spice recipe

Earlier this year, I bought a pre-filled spice rack that included a bottle of Pizza Spice. Given how much I make pizza, I have gone through the entire bottle. When I didn’t find any Pizza Spice at my local grocery store, I explored online pizza spice recipes. I found one that caught my attention. I borrowed from that recipe and tweaked it to make my own.


  • Tablespoon
  • Teaspoon
  • 1/2 teaspoon
  • Small mixing bowl or pestle and mortar

Note: A tablespoon equates to three teaspoons. So, when measuring 1.5 tablespoons, you can use a tablespoon and three 1/2 teaspoons.

Prep Time for My Pizza Spice Recipe

The whole process for making this pizza spice recipe takes less than 10 minutes from start to finish. It should take just under 5 minutes to measure and combine all the ingredients. And then it will take another 5 minutes to blend the spicies together.

Pizza Spice Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 tbsp oregano
  • 1 tbsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp dried rosemary
  • 1 tbsp dried onion flakes
  • 1/4 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder

No Salt

Note that I don’t add salt to this recipe. I like more granular control over salt levels, so while I do add salt to my pizza sauce, I didn’t want to include it in the spice mix.

A Spicy Little Kick

My pizza spice recipe packs a little kick because of the amount of crushed pepper flakes that I used. If you prefer less or no kick, then reduce the amount or eliminate the use of red pepper flakes from your mix.


  • In a pestle or small bowl, add all the ingredients.
  • If you have a pestle and mortar, mix and crush the combined spices for 5 minutes.
  • If you have a small bowl and spoon, mix the spices thoroughly.

An Evolving Recipe

As I expect that I will refine my recipe over time, I am hereby reserving my right to update and amend this recipe over time. I will add a “last updated” note whenever I update it.

Enjoy what I hope you’ll feel a delicious way to spice your own pizzas. I welcome your thoughts and comments below if you’d like to share.
