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.
- 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
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.
