Learn how to make my amazing Microwave Mug Pizza recipe in just minutes. You can add any toppings you'd like and it's faster and better than pizza delivery!

Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/16 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon marinara sauce
  • 1 generous tablespoon shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 5 mini pepperoni
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried Italian herbs (basil or oregano will work)

Instructions

  • Mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt together in a microwavable mug.
  • Add in the milk and oil then mix together. There might be some lumps but that is ok.
  • Spoon on the marinara sauce and spread it around the surface of the batter.
  • Sprinkle on the cheese, pepperoni, and dried herbs
  • Microwave for 1 minute 10 - 1 minute 20 seconds, or until it rises up and the toppings are bubbling (timing is based on my 1200W microwave so your timing might vary)
  • Enjoy straight away!

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

I’ve tried this a couple of times now and it’s disgusting. Does not taste like pizza dough at all and the center is always raw, uncooked glop that looks like pancake batter. For a few more minutes of prep you could make a real pizza.

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 🙂

This mug pizza is average. It doesn’t taste like proper pizza. The dough is undercooked in the middle. I would give this recipe a 2.5. But I absolutely loveeee the mug Mac and cheese it’s amazing and takes 5 minutes. I would rate it 5/5

I’m going to try this recipe with 80 students (K-6th) after I read the book ” Little Red Hen Makes a Pizza”. Any suggestions or tips?

I stumbled upon your website this morning while google-searching for instructions for making sour cream, and I’m so glad I did! I was intrigued by all the mug meals, cakes, brownies, cookies, etc., so I decided to try the mug pizza for lunch. I have celiac so I substituted Pamelas GF bread mix for the flour in mine, and I used regular flour for my husband’s. OtherwiseI followed the recipe exactly, except that I doubled the microwave times to accommodate the 2 mug pizzas microwave cooking at the same time. We both liked them a lot and I will make… Read more »

I was wondering if I don’t have baking soda what could I use as a substitute?

I bought 5 of your mugs. Just made my first recipe. Pizza. It never rose. What did I do wrong? The ingredients were fresh. 3 of the mugs were given to grandchildren living away from home. Worries me that their recipes might not work either. It tasted okay just stayed at the bottom of the mug. Disappointing. From the looks of the photos above it looks like theirs did not raise to the top like your example. Hope you have some advice.
