    Store-bought herbs are crazy expensive. The cost of an ounce of herbs is 48% for the container and label and 48% profit and less than 2% for the herbs. I grow and dry my own herbs and save a ton of money. Most commercial herb blends have lots of parsley. It’s cheap! Dried basil, to me, tastes like nothing. Dried oregano, rosemary, and thyme retain a lot of flavor (if stored correctly.) I’d rather leave the basil out than used the dried stuff. The herb that contributes the most flavor to this recipe is the oregano. That, to me, is the essential pizza herb that makes pizza, pizza. Just be sure to rub it vigorously between your hands to release the essential oils.5 stars

    My husband is allergic to basil is there a replacement for that or should we just leave that out? I usually find sauce without it.

      Sorry for the delay in my reply, I’d just leave it out! Thanks! -Meggan

    Since oregano and marjoram are just slightly different and I don’t have marjoram at hand, can I leave it out?5 stars

    1. meggan

      Hi Stacey, yes, just leave it out! I’ll add that to the recipe notes. Thanks.
