Expert Tips

For a new flavor, substitute chili powder for the pizza seasoning. If you don't have ground red pepper on hand, use 1/2 teaspoon red pepper sauce.

Keep these delicious nuts on hand as extra nibbles for parties. They also make a perfect last-minute gift.

If you can’t find pizza seasoning, try chili powder for a zesty south-of-the-border flair.
