Mug Pizza (Microwave Mug Meals)
 
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
 
Author:
Serves: 1
Ingredients
  • 4 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • ⅛ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/16 teaspoon baking soda
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon marinara sauce
  • 1 generous tablespoon shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 5 mini pepperoni
  • ½ teaspoon dried Italian herbs (basil or oregano will work)
Instructions
  1. Mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt together in a microwavable mug
  2. Add in the milk and oil with mix together. There might be some lump but that is ok
  3. Spoon on the marinara sauce and spread it around the surface of the batter
  4. Sprinkle on the cheese, pepperoni and dried herbs
  5. Microwave for 1 minute 10-20 seconds, or until it rises up and the topping are bubbling (timing is based on my 1200W microwave so your timing might vary)
  6. Enjoy straight away!
Notes
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

    I’ve been wanting to try this recipe. I don’t have any marinara sauce any suggestions?

  2. jolysa ford on October 25, 2017 at 3:33 pm

    Do we have to use baking soda because don’t have any?

    • Gemma Stafford on October 26, 2017 at 7:46 am

      Hi there,
      If you have baking powder use that, if not use self raising flour, that will do it too!
      Gemma 🙂

  3. Shreya on October 20, 2017 at 10:38 am

    This was amazing. I did not expect it to turn out this well! Loads of love to you for this recepie.

  4. DANISH on October 20, 2017 at 7:49 am

    CAN WE BAKE THIS IN A FLAT BOWL PLZZ REPLY

    • Gemma Stafford on October 20, 2017 at 5:47 pm

      sure, bake it at 350oF (180oC) for roughly 10 minutes 🙂

  5. Elizabeth on October 13, 2017 at 7:19 am

    Has anyone tried these recipes with gluten free flour?

    • Gemma Stafford on October 16, 2017 at 4:26 am

      Hi Elizabeth,
      This recipe does not rely on gluten, so that should not be an issue for you. Use a good brand all purpose GF flour, and try it, it is worth the experiment!
      Gemma 🙂

  6. Nick on October 10, 2017 at 1:05 pm

    Hi Gemma, I tried the recipe not expecting much, but was shocked how well it turned out! I’ve made it on few occasions now, and what I found works best for me is that you cook the dough first until it’s firm, then add ingredients and cook some more. What I wanted to ask is, since the dough is a bit tasteless and bland, is it possible to add something to it to make it taste better?

    • Gemma Stafford on October 11, 2017 at 3:20 am

      Hi Nick,
      Great, and getting it just right for you too! You can add some cheese/herbs/spice (A little paprika) to the base dough too. This will give it a flavor lift for you.
      You will be an expert in no time. Thank you for sharing your trick with us,
      Gemma 🙂

  7. Marcelle on October 3, 2017 at 1:26 pm

    Has anyone tried this using Bisquick or Carbquik instead of the flour and separate leavening agents?

    • Gemma Stafford on October 4, 2017 at 2:13 am

      Hi Marcelle,
      I do not know, but you can be sure that someone has, and will let us know. We learn from each other here, so if you try it, do let us all know,
      Gemma 🙂

  8. Amaani Carrim on September 23, 2017 at 4:19 am

    I’ve tried the brownie before and it’s delicious! I’m about to try the pizza now, can’t wait !

    • Gemma Stafford on September 23, 2017 at 7:26 am

      Delighted to hear that. Hope you liked the pizza, it is one of my favorites.

      Gemma

      • Mackenzie on September 23, 2017 at 10:04 am

        I don’t have olive oil, does vegetable oil work? That’s all I have

        • Gemma Stafford on September 23, 2017 at 4:02 pm

          sure, veg oil will work 🙂

  9. Daicy on September 20, 2017 at 9:29 am

    Hi Gemma! I was just wondering if it would be possible to double these recipies to make a larger serving and the meal still have the same outcome?

    • Gemma Stafford on September 21, 2017 at 2:06 am

      Hi Daicy,
      Yes, and no!
      What matters is the shape of the bowl you will use to bake this. A flattish bowl, like a large cereal bowl, wider at the top than the bottom should do it for you.
      Do remember that you will need to add time to this, but not necessarily twice the time. So, bake for 1 minute, then open the oven, see how it is doing, you can shift the bowl slightly too, then cook in 20 second bursts until it feels barely firm to the touch. It will continue to bake, as the heat distributes out of the oven.
      Try it, it is worth the experiment, but do not leave it the first time you do it,
      Gemma 🙂

  10. P.S. on September 18, 2017 at 10:06 am

    I confess I wasn’t expecting much out of this one because I only had tomato sauce, oregano and cheese to put on top, but it was so good that I even burned my tongue because I didn’t wanna wait for it to cool down!

  11. Reena on September 14, 2017 at 11:26 am

    This is great. Tried the cheese and macaroni and it was awesome. I am so glad I found your page.

    • Gemma Stafford on September 14, 2017 at 4:19 pm

      Glad you like my recipes, Reena. I have so many mug recipes so check them all out 🙂

  12. Neha on September 13, 2017 at 11:38 pm

    Easy and quick… Loved making it and eating it too… 😋

  13. Betsy on September 13, 2017 at 1:31 pm

    I forgot to rate the recipe. Thanks for all the awesome mug meals.

    • Gemma Stafford on September 13, 2017 at 4:51 pm

      aw thanks Betsy! 🙂

  14. Betsy on September 13, 2017 at 1:28 pm

    This mug pizza is my favorite. I’ve made it many times. 😍🍕

    • Gemma Stafford on September 13, 2017 at 4:51 pm

      mine too,Betsy. I knew it would be a winner 🙂

  15. Bob on September 11, 2017 at 4:10 pm

    I found this recipe to be kind of soggy and mushy. I cooked this for two minutes and it was still wet and too mushy on the bottom. Did I do something wrong?

    • Gemma Stafford on September 12, 2017 at 6:14 am

      I’m sorry to hear that Bob. So it simply sounds like it just needed more time to cook. That’s all. Everyones microwave is different so maybe you just need to cook for another minutes or so.

      Happy Baking!
      Gemma.

  16. Somya Gupta💃 on September 11, 2017 at 9:50 am

    I tried it.. And it was just too good to be called homemade…. Thanks Gemma 💕💕💕

    • Gemma Stafford on September 11, 2017 at 9:37 pm

      Thank you, Somya 🙂

  17. Janaki on September 10, 2017 at 4:56 am

    OMG its soooo good .It’s much better than a real pizza.I made it many times and it comes out perfect every time. Thank you so much Gemma

    • Gemma Stafford on September 10, 2017 at 5:08 am

      Thank you Janaki, I am happy when you are happy,
      Gemma 🙂

  23. Roxana on September 9, 2017 at 9:24 am

    I tried this and was great. Instead of pepperoni I used normal sausages.

  24. Wuxia princess on September 9, 2017 at 8:52 am

      Gemma 🙂

  26. Fatima Soler on September 8, 2017 at 1:27 pm

    I like this recipe very much for those nights when you feel treating yourself and it does not imply eating a whole pizza. I have already tried with different toppings and it always comes out perfect.

    • Gemma Stafford on September 9, 2017 at 3:29 am

      Hi Fatima,
      Thank you for all those lovely comments, and reviews of the recipes, i appreciate your kind support, good to have you with us,
      Gemma 🙂

      • Fatima Soler on September 10, 2017 at 1:59 pm

        Thank you Gemma for your fabulous recipes. The crazy dough has been a must for the summer holidays. Keep inspiring us!!!!

    hello gemma wow ive tried one of these and it worked very amazing also the smell makes my family wakes up at the morning

    • Gemma Stafford on September 2, 2017 at 12:40 pm

      Hi Karla,

      I’m delighted you like it. Keep up the great baking 🙂

      • Harry Potter on September 6, 2017 at 1:56 pm

        I LOVE THIS RECIPE! It’s even better than the microwave mug brownie Percy Jackson sent to me. I have to say though, its even easier to make with a wand than a microwave. It was really big hit at Hogwarts. In fact, the dining hall hasn’t been making anything else for the past two weeks because it is so easy and everyone likes them. Thanks for the recipe.
        Cheerio! ,
        Harry Potter

        • Gemma Stafford on September 6, 2017 at 8:37 pm

          Hi Harry,

          I’m so glad everyone at Hogwarts loves my mug cakes.They are perfect to make in a boarding school dorm.

          Hope you try my other recipes,
          Gemma.

  28. clara on August 29, 2017 at 6:48 am

    Hi!
    This recipe seems great, but I’m just wondering, is this enough for a big eater (my brother eats a lot and before making it for him I just want to know if it will be enough for a meal).
    Thank you for all the great recipes!!!

    • Gemma Stafford on August 29, 2017 at 6:23 pm

      Great question Clara, it is a great size for a smaller meal but if your brother is a big eater he might need two :).

      Good luck with it,
      Gemma.

  29. Windy on August 23, 2017 at 8:31 am

    Hi gemma.. I really adore you and all of your easy recipes,i’ve made some of them and it turns out yummm ,thank you..may i ask something? Since i dont have any microwave,can i just bake it in the oven? And for how long? Thank you..

    • Gemma Stafford on August 24, 2017 at 2:26 am

      Hi there,
      Yes, this is like a scone dough, and can be open baked in the oven on a flat tray. Press it out a little, top it and bake at 200C/400F for about 15 mins.
      You can make this bigger to share too!
      Gemma 🙂

  30. ghandia on August 4, 2017 at 12:37 pm

    I made the mug pizza – oh my dog! it is delicious and so so so quick to make! thank you 🙂

    • Gemma Stafford on August 5, 2017 at 2:04 am

      That is great, well done you,
      Gemma 🙂

  31. Wonderwall101 on July 31, 2017 at 6:53 pm

  32. Minaal Ali on July 31, 2017 at 6:04 am

    Hey Gemma!! I love you and your recipes. THEY ARE JUST AMAZINGGG!!! I made your chocolate brownie once from this episode and it was just amazing? Today i deided to try your mug Pizza and it came out looking just not right? It was all liquidy and it was just a mess. The ingredients i used were all fresh and clean, I don’t know what i did wrong. Please reply and tell me what was my mistake because i was so excited to try this out
    Thankyou, Minaal

    • Gemma Stafford on August 1, 2017 at 2:45 am

      Hi there,
      There are a few possible reasons!
      1. you did not bake it for ling enough.
      2. the cup/mug you used was the wrong shape. This is important because of the way microwave cooking works. I use a 6 – 8oz cup, wider at the top than it is deep. (Microwave ovens heat food by producing radiation which is absorbed by water molecules in the food. This makes the water molecules vibrate and produce heat, which cooks the food, the container matters. Use a small cereal bowl if you wish, and try again,
      Gemma 🙂

      • Minaal Ali on August 2, 2017 at 5:10 am

        Love u will definately try it this way!!
