Pizza Popcorn Seasoning
Now when I first think of Pizza Popcorn, I think of pizza doused in sauce and melted cheese because to me, those are the two biggest flavor components besides toppings of a pizza.
But that won’t exactly work for popcorn, so we are going to focus on the herbs and cheese flavors.

How do you make popcorn at home step by step?
I like to make my popcorn fresh from kernels. To do this, add the oil and kernels to a large pot with a lid ajar on the pot.
Heat the oil and kernels, shaking the pot back and forth, until they are popping. Keep the lid on but ajar to keep the kernels from popping everywhere!
When most of the kernels have popped and the popping is slowing, remove from the heat. This will take around 7 minutes.
Drizzle the popcorn with a little more oil (or melted butter!) and sprinkle with the seasonings. Toss to coat and serve warm.
If you want to make bagged popcorn and sprinkle the seasoning on top, this will work!
- Cook the popcorn as per package directions, or as follows: Add the oil to a large, 3 quart or larger pot over medium heat. Add the popcorn kernels and cover, with the lid ajar.
- Shake the pot back and forth every few minutes. Remove from the heat when the popping has slowed and most kernels are popped, approximately 7 minutes. Set aside.
- Drizzle the popcorn with just a little more oil and add the remaining ingredients to the popped popcorn. Stir to coat. Add a little more oil if needed to get everything to stick. Season to taste with more of any seasoning.
