Ever since I started making my own popcorn at home, I try to mix it up sometimes with different herbs and flavors. Finally I've gotten around to actually having photographic evidence of one of these times!

Most of the time I make popcorn it is late at night when lighting is terrible, or a last minute decision when I'm hungry and don't feel like cooking. Which means I eat it too quickly and realize too late that I could have posted it here for you guys.

Not only does popcorn not last long in my house, it can be incredibly hard to get a good photograph. It's just too… white, I guess. I'm working on it.

Anyway, I  finally present to you a popcorn recipe: Pizza Popcorn. You're welcome.

Pizza popcorn is a perfect snack for movie night that's still pretty healthy and full of flavor with dried herbs and parmesan cheese.All you need for toppings are either olive oil or melted butter, herbs, and parmesan cheese. And salt. Preferably garlic salt. I used a mix of pizza herbs that is mainly basil and oregano.

As with most of my recipes, you can adjust to your liking. 2 teaspoons of herbs might be too much for some of you, so start with mixing 1 teaspoon into the oil or butter and taste after mixing. Top off with the other teaspoon if you want more of the flavor.

Also with the parmesan. I used 1/3 cup (or more for some batches), but the recipe I adapted from only uses 1 tablespoons per 6 cups of popcorn. So just test it out, start small. Go with what you feel.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes

Ingredients

  • 6 cups popped popcorn
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, or melted butter
  • 1-2 teaspoons dried basil, and/or oregano . See note*
  • 1/3 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • salt or garlic salt, to taste

Instructions

  1. Put popped popcorn in a large bowl.
  2. In a small bowl, combine oil or melted butter and stir together with 1 teaspoon of the herbs. Pour over popcorn and toss until combined.
  3. Top with remaining herbs, parmesan cheese and salt.

Notes

2 teaspoons of dried herbs might be too much for some tastes. Start with 1 teaspoon (that will be mixed into the oil or butter) and then top off with another teaspoon if desired. *I preferred it cheesy, but for just a slight parmesan flavor you can start with a couple tablespoons of the cheese instead of the full 1/3 cup.
