Homestyle Pizza Seasoning

Homestyle Pizza Seasoning

Ingredients

2 tbsp Dried Oregano
1 tbsp Dried Basil
1 tsp Black Pepper (finely ground)
1 tsp Garlic Powder (not garlic salt)
1 tsp Onion Powder (not onion salt)
½ tsp Coarse Sea Salt
1 tbsp Red Pepper Flakes (if too spicy, use half)
1 tbsp Fennel (optional)
1 tbsp Thyme (optional)

Directions

Pick out which herbs and spices from the ingredients list you want to include.

If you’re using oregano, crush some (or all) of it between your fingers to help release the flavors.

Add all the ingredients to a bowl and whisk them together.

Add the whisked ingredients to a tightly sealed mason jar or, even better, an empty shaker bottle for convenience.

Ketchup Pizza Sauce Recipe

This ketchup pizza sauce recipe is perfect for those times when you’re ready to make pizza but you’re missing a traditional tomato sauce. It pairs perfectly with quick and easy pizza recipes like my 1 minute mini microwave pizza.

Ingredients

2 tbsp Ketchup
1 tsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 pinch Oregano
1 pinch Fresh Black Pepper
1 pinch Dried Basil (optional)
1 pinch Red Pepper Flakes (optional)

Directions

Gather your ingredients as well as a small mixing bowl.

First add the ketchup to the bowl. If you’re not working from a bottle, 2 packets of fast food ketchup will work fine.

Add olive oil, oregano, black pepper and whatever other seasonings you like and incorporate them well into the ketchup.

Add this ketchup sauce directly to the pizza crust. Tip: Don’t use too much of this sauce because it will quickly overpower the other flavors of the pizza. I recommend using just enough to create a thin, translucent layer before adding other toppings.

How to Make A Deliciously Simple Pizza Sauce

Ingredients

1 Whole Peeled San Marzano Tomatoes
1 tbsp Sea salt
20 ml Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Fresh Basil

Directions

Pour contents of tomato can into mixing bowl.

Add salt and olive oil to bowl. Tear up basil leaf and add pieces to mixture.

Use a potato masher to crush the tomatoes. Crush until tomatoes are mostly crushed but not completely. The sauce should be easily spreadable but still slightly chunky.

You’re done! Add directly to pizza or simmer at a low temperature beforehand for pasta.
