Pizza Seasoning what is you favorite?

You guys and gals have never let me down in the past when it comes to spice/rubs.  I currently use some "pizza seasonings" from a local Mennonite/Amish market, it is a good blend but I am curious about what else is out there.
 Thanks

  • Paul Prudhomme's pizza & pasta seasoning is pretty good in small amounts, Penzey's pizza seasoning is also good

    Can’t say that I’ve ever used a pizza seasoning. 
  • Hmm.  This is for protein, and not actual pizza, right?

    Don't think I've ever seen anything called "pizza seasoning". 

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    I'd always used McCormick's Italian Seasoning, rubbed between thumb/finger as I sprinkled the pie.  
    And I never put fresh basil on the pie before going in the oven (as is traditional); rather, chiffonade the leaves and sprinkle them on immediately after removing from the oven.  The heat in the pie is enough to release the oils.  And I've tried back-to-back, a leave in one bite that was cooked with the pizza until mostly black, and fresh basil on the next bite.  Burnt basil sucks.

  • I love this on pizza. 
  • The only thing I use that might approach seasoning for my pies is a little EVOO and fleur de sel.  Right after the pie comes out of the oven, I drizzle the outermost edge of the crust with the olive oil.  Then I sprinkle a little of the coarse salt in the same perimeter.  It just gives the outer crust a little kick.

  • Red pepper flakes for the pie.  I’ve never used anything labeled “pizza seasoning”.

  • Well there you have it. I will stick with what I have been using, I may take a picture of the label if it lists the spcies and post it on here when I re-up.

    @alaskanassasin My wife found this at Disney World years ago. It makes any average pizza taste more like pizza. Not cheap but it is really good. Pizza Spice

    Mostly, I run whole, canned, Cento San Marzanos (or at least the "Product of Italy" ones) thru a food mill and spread it on the dough. Then, a couple of pinches of salt, a few grinds of black pepper, a light dusting of dried oregano and a light dusting of garlic powder. Then, a drizzle of olive oil (plus I brush some on the crust). 

    So, nothing fancy, no jar that says "Pizza Seasoning", just some ordinary stuff that everyone has. I got those ingredients from the website of a New England pizza chain, Papa Geno's. I like their sauce and they list the ingredients (but not quantities) on their site. Mine doesn't taste like theirs - surprise, surprise - but I like it.

    I usually add some seasonings to the sauce just to broaden the flavor a bit..

    On a long ago tour of southern Ontario, we stopped into a pizza chain of forgotten name. The pizza was so bland, and there wasn't anything in sight to put on it. Finally got an employees' attention, and was met with a confused look when I asked for parm, or garlic, or hot pepper flakes. She responded with "well, we've got paprika, if you'd like."

  • Oregano on the pie, or flake salt on the crust. That is all I ever use and only occasionally.
