An Italian twist on movie night popcorn. Buttery, salty popcorn, coated with Parmesan cheese and seasoned with basil, garlic, and oregano.
Do you have a Friday night tradition? Is it pizza night? Popcorn and movies? We don’t normally have Friday night traditions, but tonight it is rainy and my siblings brought us a DVD to watch.
So tonight we are going to curl up and watch the play and eat this pizza popcorn. I can’t wait!
Pizza Popcorn is salty and buttery, just like good popcorn should be, but the Parmesan cheese and spices add a burst of unexpected flavor.
From start to finish it takes less than 20 minutes. This is so very nice, because when the movie is about to start who wants to be slaving in the kitchen whipping up an elaborate snack.
Just pop some popcorn, microwave if you want. Melt some butter, add the seasonings, stir to coat.
Spread it out on a cookie sheet and bake for 12 minutes till crispy.
- 10 cups popped popcorn
- 1/3 cup butter
- 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese grated
- 1/2 tsp. garlic salt
- 1/2 tsp. crushed oregano
- 1/2 tsp. crushed basil
- 1/2 tsp salt
- Melt butter and add Parmesan cheese and seasonings.
- Pour over popped popcorn and toss to coat.
- Dump onto a cookie sheet and bake for 12 min at 350 degrees.
- Enjoy while still warm.

Our Friday nights are usually pretty low key. This popcorn would be a yummy addition!
We always make fresh popcorn and love to flavor them. This sounds like something to try. Pinned.

Mallory, I am SO in love with this popcorn! My boys are definitely going to go crazy with it, pinned!
Never made any type of fancy popcorn before, only the one with salt.
This one is actually very tasty and I’m excited to try out different special popcorn recipes in the future!
