We created this salt-free seasoning blend for our pizza-loving friends! Savory and earthy, this salt-free blend is aromatic with sun-loving herbs and spices like fennel seed and basil, pungent with onion and garlic, and carries a touch of heat from crushed red pepper flakes. This careful balance of flavors gives homemade pizzas authentic pizzeria flavor, enhanced by the aroma—an herbal medley with peppery-bright fragrance, balanced with the deeper notes of onion and garlic. All of our seasoning blends are blended in-house, by hand in small batches, to provide our customers with the freshest seasonings possible.
We tend to over-do pizza, loading it with strongly-flavored toppings, like sausage or pepperoni. In Italy, pizza is more stripped down. It originated in Naples, and it used to be affordable food for laborers; marinara sauce was so named because it was created by the wives of seamen—or marinaio—so their husbands could eat when they returned to port. Neapolitan pizza was a showcase for hearty flatbread, beautiful tomato sauce, fresh cheese, perhaps some anchovies, and the herbs and spices that make these simple ingredients sing. The classic pizza Margherita, created for a royal visit by Italy’s Queen Margherita to Naples in 1889. The Queen favored the simplest pizza with the most basic ingredients, that showcased local herbs made by a local restaurateur.
Tips From Our Kitchen
Our Pizza Seasoning is incredibly versatile, and is useful at any stage of cooking. If you are making pizza at home, mix some of this blend into your pizza dough for an out of this world tasting pizza crust. Add one tablespoon of seasoning to two cups of tomato sauce for a more flavorful sauce. Or sprinkle it on top after the pizza is done cooking. This blend isn't just for pizza, either. You can mix with breading for great chicken parmesan or oven-baked pork chops, or add to spinach dip. Mix in your meatloaf, and this would make a great flavor base for a veggie-packed minestrone or tortellini soup. Whip in with goat cheese for unforgettable crostini.
This salt-free blend is made with garlic, oregano, red bell pepper, onion, pepper flakes, basil, thyme, fennel, parsley, and marjoram.
