I normally make and can my own pizza sauce, but since I go through it pretty quick, I like to keep this back up seasoning handy. If you have read the posts below, you have seen some of the other spice mixes that I have made for my Dad to try. Today, I will share my pizza seasoning mix that I like to keep on hand.
1/2 cup oregano
1/2 cup basil
1/2 cup garlic powder
1/2 cup dried onion flakes
1/4 cup thyme
2 tablespoons fine sea salt
2 tablespoons black pepper
2 tablespoons crushed fennel seed
Combine all ingredients and store in an air-tight jar.
To make the pizza sauce, add 1-2 tablespoons of the mix, 2 teaspoons olive oil and 2 cups of tomato sauce. Simmer on low for 10-15 minutes.
Like most of my mixes, you can use this for far more than just pizza sauce. It is my go to seasoning mix for most of my tomato sauce based recipes. A small amount mixed with butter and then spread on bread makes a great accompaniment for lasagna or spaghetti.
