By now, we’ve all heard of making personal mug versions of cakes, cookies, and brownies in a microwave when we’re in need of an easy, sweet treat — but making a pizza in the microwave? And I’m not talking about freezer bites. It turns out a delicious homemade pizza is just as simple (and possibly even more delicious) in a microwave mug. Shocking I know.
For all those times that delivery is taking way too long, or if you’re looking to involve the kids in safe and straightforward dinner prep, we’ve pulled together a few delicious ideas.
Simply combine flour, baking powder, and baking soda with the milk and olive oil in a large mug. Stir to combine, then add a few spoonfuls of marinara sauce and top with whatever you choose. Microwave the dish on medium power for about one minute or until the cheese is fully melted and the crust is cooked through.
Pizza is one of my favorite microwave meals because it’s so easy to customize! Are you living in a house with one meat lover and one vegetarian? Simply add shredded cheese, mini pepperoni, ham, and sausage to one mug while you top another with olives, broccoli, peppers, or any veggies you love!
These mini pizzas also make an excellent option for entertaining! Not only are they quick and easy, but they can be adjusted depending on dietary restrictions. If hosting a guest that is dairy-free or vegan, you can skip the cheese altogether and top with a yummy pesto or swap out conventional cheese with a dairy-free cheese alternative. Entertaining guests with gluten allergies? Have no fear! These can be easily adjusted to be created with gluten-free flour for the crust base.
If you have your hands full cooking with the kids, this recipe it is even more convenient with the Sharp Stainless Steel IoT Easy Wave Open Microwave Drawer Oven with Wi-Fi connectivity and the Sharp Kitchen app to enable the smart features like opening the Microwave Drawer from your mobile device.
Whether your entertaining kids, having guests over, or just plain craving some pizza, this easy microwaveable mug recipe is sure to be one of your favorites next time you’re craving pizza!
