Recipe 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

  3. Mikael Bédard on November 13, 2018 at 10:46 am

    I gave a second try to this recipe this morning. I liked the fact that the dough in the Egg Mugmuffin recipe was fluffy but still firm and that you could pop everything out of the mug easily. So, I tried to make the pizza dough by adding the rest of the leftover whisked egg (about 1 tablespoon and an half) and I sprinkled some oregano. The sauce was more tedious to spread on top, but I managed to do it. The end result was really fluffy and tasty, it almost looked like a real pizza with a crust!

    I liked that I could just pop it out of the mug and eat it on a plate. Plus, the mug was much easier to clean at the end! Tasty food and no big mess to clean!

    • Gemma Stafford on November 14, 2018 at 2:04 am

      Hi Mikael,
      Brilliant result for you, well done to persevere. I am delighted with this very kind review,
      Gemma 🙂

  4. Mikael Bédard on November 8, 2018 at 10:35 am

    I tried this recipe and I was really impressed by the taste and the final result! I used tomato paste instead of Marinara sauce and it blended really well with the herbs. I was wondering if there’s a way to make the dough a bit “firmer” (crispier), because by following the recipe my dough was a bit too soft, kinda like the one you would expect in a cake.

    But, seriously, I am amazed by this mug recipe and I will definitely try some others !

    • Gemma Stafford on November 9, 2018 at 10:29 am

      Hi there! There’s not really a way of crisping the crust in the the pizza but you can cook it a bit longer. SO glad to hear you liked ti though!

  5. Mary on November 7, 2018 at 6:51 pm

    As a college student, this could really be a lifesaver on late nights if I can pull it off successfully! Does anyone know if almond milk works as a substitute in this recipe…? If so, I might just try to make it in my room some time!

    • Gemma Stafford on November 8, 2018 at 3:08 am

      Hi Mary,
      i am really happy to hear this, a great thing for the dorm room the FREE E-Book too, a PDF found in this link:
      Yes, you can use almond milk for this recipe, that will work well for you.
      I wish you well with your studies, hard work pays off, but you need to stay nourished!
      Gemma 🙂

      • Mary on November 8, 2018 at 9:29 pm

        Whoa, thank you! There are a lot of things you can do with a mug O.O it’ll be such a relief and a time save to not have to lug all my cooking supplies to the kitchen every time I want food! Thank you so much!

        • Gemma Stafford on November 11, 2018 at 5:04 pm

          I’m thrilled to hear that, Mary!! Thanks for trying it out 🙂


  6. Barbara Stevens on November 5, 2018 at 5:33 pm

    To dearest Gemma,
    I am taking the time to write this email to inform you about the positive impact that your baking videos have had on my mental health. My cat, Socks, recently passed away and I have been struggling to find it within myself to bake nutritious meals for my family and I. I just wanted to let you know that your videos have really helped to pull me out of the state of depression I was in after the incident. My children now rejoice when I notify them I will be cooking one of “Aunty Gemma’s Recipes” and weep joyfully. I hope that others will be able to experience the full effects of your generosity through your videos, just as I myself have. Finally, through hours of meditation and listening to your soothing voice, my chakra has re-aligned. I am now more myself than ever. And I owe it all to you… and Kevin ; )
    Forever yours,
    Barbara S.

    • Gemma Stafford on November 6, 2018 at 3:28 am

      Hi Barbara,
      That is so very kind. I am so sorry that you lost your pet, it is a terrible loss to a family, we know that here.
      I am delighted however that you have found a new interest in baking, and happy to hear that we may have helped, even just a little.
      Well done you to get yourself well and happy again, so important,
      Gemma 🙂

  7. Irene on November 5, 2018 at 1:05 pm

    Can the milk be omitted?

    • Gemma Stafford on November 6, 2018 at 3:47 am

      Hi Irene,
      Yes, but you will need to replace it with water, or an alternative milk.
      Try it, all will be well,
      Gemma 🙂

  8. Millie on October 31, 2018 at 11:00 am

    Hi Gemma, This recipe is lovely, I double the recipe i sometimes make and use marinara sauce but the one I made this evening i used tomato puree, little baby tomatoes and grated cheddar cheese on top, halved the oil and a little less salt and used wholemeal flour instead of white. Put the dough on a plate and flatten to make a base put it in the microwave for 2 minutes on full power to cook the base, then add chosen topping and cook for 1 minute more 🙂

    • Gemma Stafford on November 1, 2018 at 10:13 pm

      Millie, that sounds right up my alley. I wish I wasn’t reading this at 10pm at night when I’m hungry :(.


  9. Createtiti on October 22, 2018 at 4:15 pm

    Wow, this recipe for Pizza in a Mug is so delicious. I really should have made it sooner. Whenever I crave pizza I will make this instead of buying first to see if my craving will be satisfied. I made it with whole wheat flour and the pepperoni package that has pepper corns and chilies and it turned out so flavorful. I made Gemma’s pizza sauce before I make This Mug Pizza, it’s like layering flavor on flavor. 🙂

    • Gemma Stafford on October 23, 2018 at 9:41 am

      Hi there,
      Thank you for this lovely review, and great tips too! Well done very creative indeed,
      Gemma 🙂

  10. Huda on October 9, 2018 at 11:49 pm

    Hi Gemma!
    Love you and your cooking so much you have inspired me to start baking even more all your recipes are amazing i tried the cream cheese recipe, butter milk and cheesecake in microwave as well last night i tried your mug recipe for pizza but my dough while mixing even turned in to a ball it wasnt liquidy i used every thing exactly to the recipe and even wen i cooked it the dough was raw from many parts please tell me wat could be done to make it better! I think the measurement for flour is wrong it should be four teaspoons instead of tablespoons!

    • Gemma Stafford on October 10, 2018 at 1:58 am

      Hi huda,
      The measurements in the recipe are correct. You may have overloaded the tablespoons, or your spoon is different to mine.
      Other bold bakers have managed this recipe well, so I think you can go back to it, try again. Do take a look at the video too, that will help you to see the steps as I did them.
      Thank you for being in touch, do not give up!
      Gemma 🙂

      • Huda on October 13, 2018 at 1:20 pm

        Thank you so much for takingthe time and answering back! Its really very very nice of you!

        • Gemma Stafford on October 13, 2018 at 2:13 pm

          Thank you for being part of the Bold Baking Community! 🙂

      • Huda on October 13, 2018 at 1:23 pm

        Thanks for replying Gemma its extremely sweet of you! Also thankyou so much as here in pakistan alot of things that are commonly used for baking are too expensive but thanks to you and your recipes it can be done easily now!

  11. Mastura Saari on September 19, 2018 at 2:18 am

    Hi Gemma,

    Can i bake this is convection oven? and what is the temp?

    • Gemma Stafford on September 19, 2018 at 6:31 am

      Hi there,
      Yes, but in the oven you can open bake it, no mug needed. Make more than one too when turning one the main oven. Bake at high temperature, about 200C/400F for about 15 minutes, but keep an eye on it,
      Gemma 🙂

  12. Nadia Moola on September 14, 2018 at 5:49 am

    Made this for my 4 year old for lunch today, he couldn’t stop saying how delicious it was! I used samoosa dip in place of marinara sauce, and what we call garlic-mutton polony. I didn’t even get a chance to taste it or take a photograph, when I looked it was all gone! Thank you for all your amazing work Gemma and team 👍👍 I always go to your site and the free mug meals recipe book for inspiration!

    • Gemma Stafford on September 15, 2018 at 3:43 am

      Hi Nadia,
      Good! anything which gets your little man eating is good for all, well done you, you rocked this recipe up and made it oyur own!
      Gemma 🙂

  13. splashy771 on August 26, 2018 at 12:00 am

    I made the mug pizza, I’m not sure how much watts my microwave is but when I cooked the pizza for 2 minutes the dough was sort of transparent and looked like cookie dough. Very convenient way to make pizza though! 😋😋😋

    • Gemma Stafford on August 26, 2018 at 2:07 am

      Hi there,
      I saw your photo! thank you for submitting them. I think you may have over cooked it! Most microwaves will bake this in about a minute, or slightly over. My tip is to bake for one minute, then in 10 second intervals until it feels barely firm to the touch on top. You can use the back of a teaspoon to test this is as it will be HOT!
      I hope this helps, do try again,
      Gemma 🙂

  14. Erica on August 19, 2018 at 12:40 pm

    I run an after school “cooking club”. I would love to try this with the kids. Do you know if putting in more than one mug in the microwave will work? Will I have to adjust cooking time? I typically have 16 kids with me and to have them each wait one mug at time will take too long. I hope 3 – 4 mugs in at once will work!

    • Gemma Stafford on August 19, 2018 at 1:52 pm

      Hi Erica! My Mug Meals are great recipes for kids. I haven’t tried baking more than one at a time but you might get away with two for something like the mug pizza that is less sensitive than say a Mug Cake. Also, be sure to check out my Gemma’s Mug Meals page for a 100 more mug recipe ideas. Let me know how you get on. 🙂

  15. Ann on August 17, 2018 at 9:25 am

    OK. . .you are amazing cook- I don’t usually make comments but everything that I’ve tried from you has been so amazing and SIMPLE!!! I live alone so don’t care to spend too much time cooking just for myself. Your recipes are easy, adaptable and fast!. thank you!

    • Gemma Stafford on August 17, 2018 at 10:59 am

      I’m really thrilled to hear that Ann. I’m not a commenter either so I really appreciate it.

      Make sure you download my free mug meals book. You might find it really handy.

      I’m so glad to hear you liked the recipe, send me a picture next time!

  18. Dana W. on August 6, 2018 at 7:15 pm

    Hi Gemma! I found u after I seen a video by Jenna Marbles & Julien Solomita
    on YouTube about a year ago. He couldn’t eat solid food so she made him a microwave mug pizza and he loved it. I remembered it all the way until recently when I was wanting pizza and didn’t have the stuff to make it. So I improvised and it was great! I’d love to get your cookbook as well. I’m a single mom of a 15 year old son and it’d help with quick snacks. Just wanted to drop by and leave a comment 🙂
    Thanks n have a great day!!

    • Gemma Stafford on August 8, 2018 at 9:25 am

      I’m so delighted to hear that, thank you so much for the kind words. Keep on baking 🙂

  19. fuzma on August 6, 2018 at 9:18 am

    Hi Gemma,

    Thank you. I was able to make few of your recepies in an OTG with the temperature of 180 c for around 20 minutes

    • Gemma Stafford on August 9, 2018 at 10:26 am

      hi there Fuzma,
      Good! I am happt to hear this. Than kyou for letting the other Bold Bakers know this,
      Gemma 🙂

  20. Farah on August 1, 2018 at 7:42 am

    Hi Gemma ,I am Farah I just loved this idea . It’s quick and easy . I stay alone , so these are gonna be perfect recepies for me but I don’t have a microwave oven with me . I have an OTG and a newbie to baking. Will I still be able to make these recepies. If so could you please help me with the time and temperature

    • Gemma Stafford on August 2, 2018 at 1:47 am

      Hi Farah,
      Yes, most of these recipes can be baked in an OTG. The temperature will be 180c/350f and the time will be about 15 mins.
      Use an oven proof ramekin, or a muffin pan, and monitor the bake.
      The type of oven you have will also determine how this will work out for you. Read the instructions for your oven for best results,
      Gemma 🙂

    • Gemma Stafford on July 12, 2018 at 9:35 pm

      You obviously haven’t tried it Spencer… .

      I bet you would love it 🙂


  22. Carol Taylor on July 11, 2018 at 5:59 pm

      Gemma 🙂

  23. Megan on July 9, 2018 at 8:23 am

    Is it possible to use water instead of milk in the pizza mug recipe?

    • Gemma Stafford on July 9, 2018 at 9:18 pm

      Yes, Megan. You can use water no problem 🙂


  24. Asifa Sajid on July 7, 2018 at 10:44 am

      You sure can, that will work well 🙂

    • Gemma Stafford on July 7, 2018 at 10:40 am

      Hi! I’m delighted you enjoyed my Mug Brownie recipe. Yes, you can definitely use a pizza sauce as well. Or, you can find my 5-Minute Pizza Sauce recipe.

  26. Hillary on June 17, 2018 at 6:02 pm

    I don’t have baking soda…Is that ok?

    • Gemma Stafford on June 18, 2018 at 1:56 am

      Hi Hilary,
      Yes, just add a touch more baking powder, there is really very little in this in any case. If you use self raising flour you can use that without the raising agent and all will be well.
      Thank you for being in touch,
      Gemma 🙂

  27. Emily on June 12, 2018 at 2:21 am

    Hey, I tried this recipe, it worked great! Please give me all the microwave recipes asap.

    This pizza was sooo good. I didnt make enough actual dough and this was good if they didnt get enough pizza.

      thank you for this kind review, you are a bold baker!

    This is the second mug recipe of yours I have tried and love both so far! Its so quick and easy to make. They also work great in various mug sizes. I look forward to trying your other mug recipes as well. The instructions are super easy to follow, and always turn out perfect. Thank you so much for a great youtube channel! 🙂

    Have a nice week

  32. Alex on May 26, 2018 at 7:50 am

    This is a great recipe that I am excited to try out! I was just wondering, if you use the ingredients for the base, would it be possible to refrigerate for later? Thanks!

    • Gemma Stafford on May 26, 2018 at 9:05 am

      Hi Alex,
      This should work well for this recipe, try it! When there is a raising agent it will activate as soon as it is wet, so the rise may not be so good, but it should be ok,
      Gemma 🙂

  33. Anna Jones on May 21, 2018 at 12:02 pm

    This is my second time trying this recipe. I liked it the first time, but it wasn’t quite enough for my hunger level, so I tried making the normal recipe with all the toppings, then doing a half-batch and layering it on top with cheese. It turned out really well! Definitely going to make this recipe a go-to

    • Gemma Stafford on May 22, 2018 at 10:37 am

      I’m delighted you like it Anna. This is one of my favorites.


  34. Zara West on May 18, 2018 at 4:55 pm

    Hi Gemma

    I have tried out your mug mac and cheese and it was wonderful. Thank you so much for the recipe

    I would like to make the mug pizza but I was wondering if you could use tomato paste instead of the sauce.

    Thanks 🙂

    • Gemma Stafford on May 18, 2018 at 11:39 pm

      I’m thrilled to hear that!!! Thanks so much for trying it out. Tomato paste can be used but just note it is a very concentrated flavor so it might be a bit strong tasting.

    I love your mug meals and treats! I have tried to get your 100 mug meals book from the link on this page but all I find is that the page does not exist. I’m super sad about this as I want to give it to my daughter in law who lives without an oven and could really use all these recipes. Please advise ASAP. Thank you.

      Hi Mary,

              Katy, are you talking about my husband? or another Kevin, I am confused,
              Gemma 🙂

    Hi Gemma!

    I am to your pizza now! The pumpkin pie turned out amazing and pumpkin puree was so easy to make! I also have tried so many of your desserts I have lost count, lol. They were all fantastic and I absolutely adore the banana bread!

    Anyway, as weird as it sounds here I don’t crave American pizza flavors. I actually have fallen in love with Israeli pizza flavors and would like to try them in this mug, though I am not sure it will work, so I wanted your thoughts. My favorite pizza is a tuna and corn pizza with garlic dressing (dairy free ranch) on top. My concern is because there toppings are very wet if it will still work. Do you think it will? Any ideas on how to make it work well?

    By the way I loved your crazy dough, cookie, etc series. Can you do some more fruit inspired dishes?


    • Gemma Stafford on May 5, 2018 at 1:32 pm

      Hi Daniela,
      Thank you for this lovely comment. I am not sure what these flavors are! I think there are a number of spicy dips involved, but I do not know the ingredients, i am sorry. Certainly tuna and corn, and a garlic dressing would work well. If you make a light garlic oil, cook the pureed or chopped garlic in a little oil or butter, add a little spice if you like, and a touch of salt, this would work well. You can add a little parsley to this too. Perhaps this would be sufficient to give you the flavor. I am not sure, you need to run a little experiment!
      Gemma 😉

    Hi Gemma,
    I altered the recipe for a gluten-free diet. I used Bob’s Red Mill GF Pizza Crust mix instead of flour. I also added a tablespoon of liquid eggs and a sprinkle of Italian seasoning to the mix. I cooked the crust for 1 minute, added the sauce and toppings, then cooked for another 40 seconds in a 900 watt microwave. Other than those changes, I followed your recipe exactly as given.

    • Gemma Stafford on April 30, 2018 at 4:14 am

      Hi Diane,
      Thank you so much for this suggestion. It is great to have this advice for other Bold Bakers. love that you created your own recipe too, that is the idea!
      Gemma 😉

  38. Amani on April 17, 2018 at 2:23 pm

    Your Mac n Cheese was soooooo good. For the pizza what if you don’t have marinara sauce? What should you substitute it with? Thanks!

  39. Mug_Recipe_Addict on April 10, 2018 at 2:47 am

    Yuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuum! Thanks for this recipe!

  40. Amielyn Kieth on April 4, 2018 at 12:48 am

    Hi Gemma, I don’t have microwave oven at home, can I use toaster oven instead?

    • Gemma Stafford on April 4, 2018 at 2:17 am

      Hi there,
      Yes, that will be perfect. You can use any oven proof container, or open bake. 180c/350f for about 15 minutes,
      Gemma 😉

      • Amielyn Kieth on April 4, 2018 at 2:31 am

        Great! I would definitely try this at home. 🙂 Thank you!

      • Sofia on April 16, 2018 at 12:39 am

        Sorry but if my microwave has max 800 Watts how much time should I cook? Sorry for my English

        • Gemma Stafford on April 16, 2018 at 3:52 am

          Hi Sofia,
          There is nothing wrong with your English!
          800 Watt is a pretty standard microwave power level, and how it cooks depends on the technology too. What this means is that I cannot be specific. You need to monitor the bake as it proceeds. Bake for 50 seconds, check it, continue in 10 second intervals until it feels barely firm to the touch on top. Then you will know for the next time. Food cooked in the microwave continues to bake for a few minutes after it is removed from the oven, allow for this too.
          Thank you for being in touch,
          Gemma 🙂

    Ahh I wish I could say this didn’t work so I wouldn’t have to make it again but it did work and now I’m obligated to make it every time I have a craving for pizza. Also thanks for leaving a link to the original recipe!

    • Gemma Stafford on March 29, 2018 at 3:17 am

      Hi Kari,
      Haha! that is funny. I am happy when you are happy,
      Gemma 🙂

    Hi Gemma!
    I just wanted you to know how much my students and I love your mug recipes! We are making the mug pizza this week. I teach students with multiple disabilities, and my goal for them is to always be as independent as possible. I am hoping that these mug recipes are some that they can use for life. We have made the mugritos & mac n cheese, too. They are certainly enjoying this part of our class. 🙂 Thanks a bunch, from all of us!

    • Gemma Stafford on March 29, 2018 at 4:34 am

      Ah! That is so nice to hear, thank you.
      I hope this will be a step on the ladder for your students, and all student really, a jumping off point for lots of baking and cooking, it takes the mystery out of it!
      Good job you too, I am delighted to hear this,
      Gemma 🙂

    I have tried the macaroni and cheese delicious. I would like to make more recipes but I am gluten free can I use gluten free flours in your recipes? Thanks for your recipes they are great for people to control their portions for weight loss keep up the wonderful work you do.

    • Gemma Stafford on March 9, 2018 at 6:05 am

      Hi Roberta,
      Thank you for being in touch.
      Many ‘cake’ type recipes can be made using a good quality all purpose GF flour. We have some GF recipes here for you (
      Breads are more of an issue, as the gluten is so important to these. Some flours are developed for this, with xanthan gum, check your local store for a good supply.
      Gemma 🙂

  45. ArshiKaur on March 7, 2018 at 9:46 am

    I see that you use a wide mug for your recipes. So what’s the substitute for that?

    • Gemma Stafford on March 9, 2018 at 6:52 am

      Hi there,
      a cereal bowl/pudding bowl/soup bowl. Really any 6 – 80z capacity bowl will do it, wider than deep is the rule!
      Gemma 🙂

  46. Chantese on March 5, 2018 at 5:48 pm

    This is the best. It is fast for me to make the pizza in the microwave. I only did a cheese pizza and it taste so good.

    • Gemma Stafford on March 6, 2018 at 12:47 pm

      That is so good to hear Chantese, thank you,
      Gemma 🙂

      • Susan Corcoran on May 8, 2018 at 9:14 am

        Hi Gemma, My name is Susan and I live in Alberta Canada. I tried your recipe for the mug pizza and it worked out really well. I followed the recipe exactly. We loved it. The cookies also turned out really well and were so much fun to make. I also enjoyed watching your episode of Best Baker in America from last night. Where do you purchase your cute microwavable tea cups?

        Thanks so much, New Bigger Bolder Baker Fan

        • Gemma Stafford on May 9, 2018 at 2:15 pm

          Hi Susan,
          I am happy to have you with us in Alberta. Thank you for your kind words too.
          I had fun working on The Best Baker in America program, it was great, a new experience for me, thanks for watching.
          My teacups are a collection, begged, borrowed, stolen (shh, don’t tell my mum) gifted, and bought in all sorts of places. I cannot pass a goodwill/charity store. A great place to find single cups and saucers. Now people just give them to me as gifts. One of mt favorites is from a dear friend in Australia. So. look around, it can be your hobby. This is a popular thing in the UK and Ireland, so it is easy to find there.
          Thank you for being here with us,
          Gemma 🙂
