Pizza Dough Seasoning


It is no secret we are fans of King Arthur Flour. We love their recipes and all of their products. We keep joking about putting in a bulk order from them, but deep down we are not joking at all. We wish our pantries were stocked full of their yummy goodness.

One of our favorite items is their Pizza Dough Flavor. We love adding it for that extra zip in our pizzas. Unfortunately, we ran out. Too impatient to wait for another order with shipping and all, we headed to our local grocery store and made our very own pizza flavor seasoning. It is super simple and not that expensive to make.

Here is what we used:

8 Tablespoons of cheddar cheese powder (you can use either white or yellow)
1 Tablespoon garlic powder
1 Tablespoon onion powder
1 heaping Tablespoon of Italian seasoning


Mix it all together in a bowl and then store in a small jar or zip-top bag. Just add a Tablespoon or so to your pizza dough recipe when you are mixing and you will have one extra tasty crust.

This looks great. Where do you get the cheddar cheese powder? I have never seen it, but then I've never looked for it. But will now.

Go Vermont! :) I live about 2 hours from Norwhich, where King Arthur is headquartered.

I am a fan of their boxed breads/scones.

Must do for my next batch of dough. Thanks for the tip.

Great idea! I make pizza dough all the time but this would be a great way to jazz it up. Where do you find 'Cheddar Cheese Powder'? All I can think of is a packet out of Mac and cheese?

We found ours in the bulk food section at the local grocery store. They should have it by the scoop. That is also where we picked up our other seasonings.

Megan said...

This WAS great! I saw this and made pizza the next day! And even better to find that you are NW locals. It took me a few posts to put it all together, hooray for the NW!

Make your own cheddar cheese powder! Shred chunks of good-quality sharp cheddar in food processor using the shredder disk. Remove to a bowl and toss with a little flour to coat the shreds. Swap out the shredder disk for the regular blade. Return the shreds to the processor and pulse a few quick times to break up the shreds, being careful not to end up with cheddar paste. Spread on Silpat or parchment-lined baking sheets and cook in a slow oven (150-175 degrees) until moisture evaporates. Cook completely. Process into powder. Will freeze indefinitely. I would also store the pizza dough seasoning in the freezer.

That should be "COOL" completely, not COOK completely.

A friend just told me about your blog and I love it! Thanks for all of the awesome ideas and information. I am trying this with my pizza dough today for lunch!!

I definitely want to try Susan's recipe for the cheese powder! Last night I found Kroger Cheese Sprinkles in the spice section -- a 2 oz jar (looks like a spice jar), so I hope that works in the meantime. I looked in three stores until I found this -- I was thinking it was the little cheese packs with Kraft Macaroni and Cheese, too... Tonight I'm trying KAF New Year's Pizza. Yum -- can't wait to get going on that!

Cheryl Speer said...

Every time I get a King Arthur catalog I want to try the pizza dough seasoning. I can't wait to make my own. How much seasoning do you use for 1 lb of dough?

Do you think "Gold Medal Cheddar Cheese Flavor Popcorn Seasoning" is the same thing as Cheddar Cheese Powder you used?

Brian Mclean said...

Good question, it sounds good
