How to make pizza in a mug

Sean Cavanaugh, Executive Features Editor

I have always loved homemade pizza, but it takes way too long and has a lot of clean up. So I went on a hunt to find an easier way. I then stumbled across a microwave pizza, in a mug!

Total time

6 mins


  • 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
  • ½ teaspoon dried Italian herbs (basil or oregano will work)


  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 and dried herbs
  5. Microwave for 1 minute 10-20 seconds, or until it rises up and the top is bubbling 
  6. Enjoy straight away!
