Haven't been around in a while, but I wanted to pop in and share a minor discovery I made about a nice little spice combination to use when topping pizzas.
I was in London not too long ago and stopped a gluten-free pizza place. It was some kind of Mediterranean pizzeria. They had this really interesting little spice combination on the pizza, with a taste I couldn't quite identify. It was very familiar-tasting, almost lemon-y, but it escaped me.
When I got back, I went into my spice rack and tried to figure out what spices were happening in the mix. I finally figured out the one that was making the biggest taste splash in the mix--CORIANDER.
So I did a little more experimenting, and came up with this spice mix that isn't an exact match, but it captures the spirit of it, anyway. The proportions are as follows (amounts can be whatever you want):
1/3 oregano (not in the fine powder form...the actual spice)
1/3 coriander (I ground it from whole coriander seeds...I haven't tried it yet pre-ground in fine powder form)
Sprinkled in moderation on top of pizza, you guys might like it. Give it a shot
