It’s no secret that we love pizza, so when New York Times contributor, chef, YouTube star and culinary creator (she’s prolific!) Sohla El-Waylly and her chef husband Ham suggested making a pizza blend together, we knew it was going to be something special.
The result? A magical blend that you can sprinkle on just about anything to make it taste like pizza. That's the kind of world that we want to live in.
We first met the El-Waylly power couple when Ham was a chef and started buying our Cured Sumac for the restaurant (Sohla wrote all about their shared loved for our sumac in Wirecutter).
Pizza party is your go-to seasoning. This blend is bright with sun-dried tomato powder and umami-rich from purple stripe garlic, herbal with oregano buds and flowering hyssop thyme, and with a healthy kick from cobanero chili flakes,
Sohla says, "We want everything to be pizza, so we created this blend to make our cheesy dreams come true."
It can be sprinkled on meats, pasta, eggs, avocado toast, popcorn and even pizza (because who doesn’t want more pizza on their pizza?).
ABOUT SOHLA & HAM EL-WAYLLY
A long time ago, in two cities separated by 8250 miles, there were two people born. In Los Angeles, California, to Bangladeshi parents, Sohla. In Doha, Qatar, to Egyptian-Bolivian parents, Ham. Culinary obsession would bring them both to the CIA, where they had every class together in a program where that never happened.
Before you know it, they were married and living in New York. Sohla’s varied culinary journey took her from iconic restaurants like Pok Pok, Del Posto and Atera to running the pastry programs at Rotisserie Georgette, Dover and Battersby. Ham’s voyage took him from WD-50, Empellon, Corton and Momofuku to corporate cheffing at E2 Hospitality. This culminated in their love letter to classic diners, Hail Mary, which earned a prestigious Rising Star Chefs award.
After Hail Mary shuttered its doors, Sohla’s journey into food media began, with stints at Serious Eats and Bon Appetit. You can find her work at The New York Times, Food52 and The History Channel.

- Pizza Party
This stuff is amazing!!
I love using this seasoning mix! It's great on: popcorn, avocado toast, pasta, pizza (duh), eggs.... probably good on anything. I would definitely buy again.
Very tasty on popcorn and tossed in French fries.. Also works well in meatballs.
Fantastic as always!
We love the spices, the origin of the spices and the customer service. The pizza party was so good and we’re pretty discerning when it comes to buying mixes. Love this company - keep up the good work!
I crave this stuff
I just ordered my second jar after realizing with horror that I was out when I went to get some to sprinkle on my rice. The savory-spicy-umami flavor profile goes great on just about everything. My husband used it to season meatballs and even our 2-year-old was all about it and begging for a second serving. Pizza Party is one of B&B's biggest slam dunks. Please don't ever stop making it!
Awesome blend for making an easy vinaigrette!
