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.
