Turn the tables on traditional pizza by serving up healthier homemade pizza combinations seasoned with a delicious array of antioxidant-rich herbs. That’s how the ancient Greeks made their pizza; by topping their flatbreads with olive oil and tasty native herbs and spices.

Pizza took a culinary quantum leap in the late 1800s with the introduction of “pizza margherita,” a creative concoction of tomatoes, mozzarella cheese and fresh basil. Today’s takeout and store-bought pizzas continue to feature herbs in pizza sauce and as a shaker mix for seasoning pizzas. Throughout the years, the constant for great pizza is timeless herbs.

By using herbs on pizza, you can highlight or complement the flavor of seasonal vegetables and other toppings. Think outside the pizza box—think beyond your basic mozzarella, tomato-based pizza sauce and artery-clogging pepperoni.
