When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza-pie, that's amore. Whether or not you like cheesy old Dean Martin songs, you probably have a fondness for pizza. Our simple Pizza Blend adds tasty Italian flavor to your pizza, pasta sauce and focaccia bread.
The Ancient Greeks made a pizza-like meal of flatbread, onion, herbs and garlic, and over 1000 years ago, the word pizza made its first appearance in a Medieval Latin text. Naples is thought to be the birthplace of the "modern" pizza, where, by the 16th century, round flat dough topped with meats and vegetables were baked in public ovens and sold on the streets.
Pizza came to the United States with Italian immigrants in the late 1800s, and the versatile dish gained in popularity throughout the 20th century. Whether you like your pizza in simple "Verace Pizza Napoletana" [True Neapolitan Pizza] style, or thick-crusted Sicilian style, or you prefer barbecue, cheeseburger or taco pizza, a sprinkling of our Pizza Blend will liven up your pie.
Pizza Blend contains spices, garlic, salt, and onion, and is also a tasty addition to marinara or bolognese sauce, as a flavor booster under cheese in a cavatelli or calzone, and provides an aromatic crunch on top of your focaccia or flatbread.
Try a little spoon of Pizza Blend in your homemade oil-and-vinegar salad dressing, or with good olive oil for dipping fresh bread. Pizza Blend spices add a touch of Italy to any dish on your table.
