Is pizza seasoning the same as Italian seasoning?

Italian seasoning is usually a mix of dried oregano, basil thyme and rosemary. Pizza seasoning usually has the extra ingredients that everyone loves with their pizza, like onions, garlic, fennel and more.

  • thyme
  • fennel

  • ground black pepper

This also makes a cute gift idea. Package it in a cute little glass container and give it to someone with a jar of pizza sauce or a recipe for pizza crust!

How to Store Pizza Seasoning

If you’re giving this to someone as a gift- make sure to write the expiration date on it so they know!

    Hi Kristyn,
    I can certainly understand how your pizza seasoning got 5 stars (before I got here). It is outstanding. The first time I made it I needed a last minute seasoning for a throw-together pasta. We liked it so much that I made it again using home dehydrated herbs from my garden. They are usually a milder flavor than the store bought ones so I increased those 5 herbs to 1 1/2 Tablespoons. Again, it turned out great. We will be using it from now on. Thanks!

    Hey Kristyn,
    I am wondering on your yummy pizza seasoning recipe are the nutritional facts calculated for the whole batch/recipe or is that for just 1 serving?? I Love it & am thinking of making some as part of a basket gift for a group, but one person has medical issues & will need to know the amount of carbs in it. That’s why I am asking.
    Thank you & Happy Cooking!

      1. Seasonings are made from real food that contained real carbs before they were dried and transformed into what we know as herbs and spices. As such, they have carbs.
