Now most of the pizza sauce seasoning recipes you’ll find online will talk about using some version of Italian Seasoning which is fine but for this Pizza Sauce Seasoning we wanted something authentic and a bit more robust. We worked with the owner of an old school family run pizza shop in New York that wanted us to blend his pizza sauce seasoning as he was opening a second location and this was easier for him than making larger quantities at the original shop.
Now while many of us prefer using fresh herbs over dried herbs when possible our pizza guy prefers using dried herbs in his classic pizza sauce. Because savory herbs tend to grow in dry relatively hot climates they remain relatively stable at high temperatures as the real flavor is contained deep inside the leaf.
Now for a classic Italian Seasoning you’ll find the dried herbs used are considered cut and sifted. The key to the herbs used in this pizza sauce blend is that some of them are ground. This is especially critical with the ground thyme and ground rosemary as when using these in the normal dried state they tend to create more flavor explosions which makes the sauce less smooth.
Our New York Pizza Sauce Seasoning is hand blended from basil, marjoram, savory, ground rosemary, ground thyme, sage, oregano and parsley.
