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

    Hi Gemma! I’m giving this recipe 4 stars, because, the first time I made it, it turned out awful!!! But… the second time it was a very fun and delicious snack! 🙂 If it had been great the first time… maybe I would give 5 stars. I also rested the dough the second time. Maybe that is why, and also the second pizzas dough came out as a way better texture than the regular dough. Hope this helps! I loved this recipe. Thanks Gemma 😉

    • Gemma Stafford on February 17, 2019 at 1:13 am

      Hi Madie,
      See, what matters to me the most is that you learned a lot between the first and second attempts.
      It is interesting how resting a dough helps a lot, and I hope you figured out why that matters too. It is related to my saying ‘do not over mix’. Over mixing activates the gluten in the flour, in yeast baking this is a good thing, in regular baking it toughens the dough. Resting the dough relaxes the gluten and gives a tender bake. This is most true of pastry type dough. Some baking which includes raising agents can suffer from being left too long.
      Thank you for this review of this recipe, I appreciate it,
      Gemma 🙂

    Hi … Any optional for marinara sauce

    • Gemma Stafford on February 13, 2019 at 6:26 am

      Hi there,
      There is a think called a white pizza! This uses a bechamel sauce as the base for the toppings.
      Basic white sauce:
      1oz butter, 1oz plain flour. Melt the butter and gently cook the flour in this for about one minute. Take it off the heat and slowly pour in 1 pint of cold milk, which can be flavored with salt pepper, onion etc. Then cook this out over a low heat. Look this up! it is worth knowing for other things too,
      Gemma 🙂

    Hi Gemma, I am interested in making this Pizza, but I would like to know if I could use a premade pizza dough? I ask because I have some left after trying to make a pizza in the instant pot. Thanks, Kim

    • Gemma Stafford on February 13, 2019 at 5:28 am

      Hi Kim,
      I do not think so, but you can try! If you do try it then be aware that the microwave will not brown the dough in the same way. I think it would too be best baked on a flat plate. Do let me know how this works for you! it will be interesting to other bold bakers too,
      Gemma 🙂

    Hello Gemma,
    I would like to try this recipe with Gluten free flour. Can you suggest which one will work best? Almond, Cassava or Coconut ?

    • Gemma Stafford on February 10, 2019 at 3:24 am

      Hi Madge,
      very few single flours will work well, they almost always need to be balanced with something. Coconut flour is really absorbent, and almond flour not so much, so they make good partners, as the coconut binds. I think for the pizza recipe rice flour would work well, with the addition of perhaps oat flour, potato starch too, though what matters the most is why you need it to be gf. If you are celiac then it is vital that you know the source of the flours is right.
      A good all purpose plain gf flour blend will really help you, and there are some really good ones out there. Millet, as a grain may suit you too. I think you can experiment. If you choose to use almond flour, with coconut flour, then the coconut element should be about 1/4 of the almond amount.
      I hope this helps,
      Gemma 🙂

      • Madge davis on February 11, 2019 at 7:53 pm

        Thank you for responding, Gemma. I appreciate your feed back and will experiment with the different flours

        • Gemma Stafford on February 12, 2019 at 10:03 am

          It’s my pleasure, let me know how you go!

  5. James on February 4, 2019 at 9:12 pm

    Could I use Self Raising flour instead of Plain Flour and Baking Powder?

    • Gemma Stafford on February 5, 2019 at 4:21 pm

      Yes, that will work in this recipe. Enjoy!

  6. Samira Eid on February 2, 2019 at 9:48 pm

    Hi, can I prepare the batter and keep it refrigirated for few hours?

    • Gemma Stafford on February 3, 2019 at 1:20 am

      Hi Samira,
      Yes! cover it down, all will be well,
      Gemma 🙂

  7. charlotte on February 1, 2019 at 2:42 am

    Hi, what if I don’t have baking powder? What could I use as a substitute?

    • Gemma Stafford on February 1, 2019 at 1:52 pm

      Yes, you can use 1/8 teaspoon of baking soda. Enjoy!
