Hi Bold Bakers!
Some of my favorite dishes come from a twist on the norm, for example a Pizza in a Mug. So I thought why wouldn’t everyone love a Microwave Calzone in a Mug?! It has the same cheesy doughy goodness of the Mug Pizza, just more of it. Although not a traditional Calzone, if you are a fan of dough, pizza sauce and cheese then you won’t complain when you try this. Now that’s a recipe for a good time.
Bold Baking Tips for Mug Meals
The cook time is based on my microwave which is 1200 Watts so your cook time may vary depending on the wattage of your microwave. When in doubt check your mug meal after 45 seconds just to make sure it is cooking ok. You can always cook it for 30 second intervals if you wish. Also the mugs I use are small, roughly 6oz (¾ /1 cup) but feel free to use bigger.
Mug recipes are real meals made fast. They are satisfying, single-serving recipes made with real food. For even more convenience, make them up the night before for a fast breakfast in the morning.
- 8 tablespoons all purpose flour
- ¼ teaspoon baking powder
- ⅛ teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 6 tablespoons milk
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 3-4 tablespoons tomato sauce
- 4-5 tablespoons finely grated mozzarella cheese
- ¼ teaspoon dry Italian seasoning
- Parsley for garnish (optional)
- 2 min 30 second cook time
- In a microwave safe mug combine your flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
- Once dry ingredients are combined add in the milk and oil and mix thoroughly until you have a smooth batter (if there are a few lumps, not to worry).
- In the center of the batter drop a spoonful of your tomato sauce, cheese, Italian seasonings and pepperoni. Pull the batter over the center to hide the calzone filling underneath the batter.
- Microwave for 1 minute and 50 seconds to 2 minutes and 10 seconds or until the top of the calzone is risen and firm to the touch (timing is based on my 1200W microwave so your timing might vary) Garnish with parsley and tomato sauce if you’d like. Enjoy straight away!
Cooking time will vary greatly depending on your microwave and the width and depth of the mug. The mugs I use are small, roughly 6oz (¾ /1 cup)
Always keep a close eye on your mug while in the microwave so it doesn’t over flow or over cook.
⅛ teaspoon is simply a ½ of a ¼ teaspoon
1/16 teaspoon is simply a ¼ of a ¼ teaspoon
