  • “I accidentally submited without leaving commments!!!THIS IS A 5 STAR RECIPE!It is fantastic!I am doing Weight Watchers and I used air popped popcorn and fat free butter spray along with the listed ingredients for a low fat snack!Finding healthy recipes like this one, makes my day.I came up with this for points:3 cups of air popped pizza popcorn= 2 points!”

  • “Good combo for a quick snack! I melted 2T of butter and added the spices into it so they’d stick. Didn’t remind me much of pizza, but good all the same! Thanks!”

  • “My husband doesn’t like cheese, so I left that ingredient out and it was still great!The more we ate, the more we wanted.. I mixed the ingredients with real butter.YUMMY!Thanks girls! and Thanks Mirj!”

  • “This was pretty good!I didn’t think it tasted quite like pizza – may have been the particular blend of Italian seasoning I used.But, it was nice & spicy.I also added 1/4 of butter.”

  • “This is AWESOME stuff!I make as big a batch of it as I can, but it never fails to be gone in no time. ^^ It’s so easy too!Thank you SO much for posting this.My kids, my husband, my parents…my sisters…lolwe all thank you. :)”

  • “This was good & made a great midnite snack :)”

  • “Thank you Mirj for this fantastic recipe. It is the only way I will eat popcorn anymore. I have even made it easier and mixed all the ingredients (except the cheese) together and it is stored in its own contatiner waiting to be used. Most definetly a 5 star recipe.”

  • “This is a different flavor for popcorn– I’m not sure exactly how to describe it.I left out the paprika because I’m out of it, but otherwise followed the recipe as written.If I make this again I’ll definitely add melted butter both for flavor and to keep the seasonings on the popcorn.My two year-old daughter and I liked this, but my husband smelled it once and wouldn’t even taste it… so I guess that averages out to three stars for our household.”

  • “This tasted good, but I found that it didn’t stick to the popcorn and fell to the bottom of the bowl.Next time I’ll have to mix it with butter…”
