This easy homemade Italian seasoning is a staple in my kitchen. I use it a couple times a week. Sometimes I’ll add it to my oven roasted red potatoes or use it to add a pop of flavor to some grilled veggies or meat. This blend goes perfectly with chicken, pork and even beef.
If we’re making homemade pizza, I sprinkle some on my bread machine pizza dough before adding the pizza sauce and toppings.
Really, the options are endless.

How To Make Italian Seasoning
Italian seasoning is super easy to make. It’s just a matter of measuring out the different dried herbs and combining them together.
- Carefully stir to combine making sure the herbs are well blended.
- Transfer to a small, airtight container.
- This seasoning mix will stay good for up to 6 months in your cabinet. It should be stored in a cool, dry, dark place.
Why Make Your Own Seasoning Mix?
- Adjusting and fine tuning the flavor is simple. If you’re not a fan of any of the spices, you can reduce or eliminate.
- Whenever you run out, you don’t need to make a trip to the store. Just whip up another batch.
- It’s a great way to use up those big bottles of spices in your pantry. While I may not use every one of these ingredients a lot, they are exceptional in a spice blend like this one. It’s the perfect use for spices you don’t find yourself using on their own that often.
- I love including a bottle with holiday gifts for neighbors. It’s always appreciated and I know they’ll use it. Plus, they’re super cute 😁
