Microwave Mug Pizza

Would you believe that I didn’t even own a microwave until about two years ago, and now I make everything from chicken pulao to mug pizza in it? I know what you are thinking – microwave mug pizza, that sounds kind of ridiculous, but stick with me and you won’t regret it.

Microwave mug pizzas come together in like 5 minutes, of which only 1-2 minutes are in the microwave. They are super fun for the kids to make themselves, and they taste really good. The texture of the dough or ‘crust’ of this pizzas is a little flakier and thicker than a thing crust, but delicious nonetheless. You can load them however you want. I like mine with corn, red bell peppers, and olives, but for the kids cheese and pepperoni might do.

*Quick note – as I was researching microwave recipes for a recent campaign, I saw many versions of this recipe online with minimal variation. I was not able to trace it back to the original creator, if you know who it was please let me know! My take has a couple of new notes, but is inspired by other microwave mug cakes!

Notes on making microwave mug pizza:

  • Make sure your mug is microwave safe!
  • Test your pizza at different times. At home my microwave takes only 70 seconds to cook the pizza, at the office I need 90 seconds. I would start with 60 seconds, test by lifting the dough a little, and then go up in 10 second increments.
  • Let the pizza sit for 60 seconds or so before giving it to littles. The steam will finish cooking the dough, and it will give it time to cool enough for eating.
  • These microwave mug pizzas get super hot, be careful with the mug and when biting into them!
