Here’s my youngest helping me. I showed all of them how I created a few and then sent them off on their own so they could “do it myself”.

Pizza in a mug

  1. First you’ll need a microwave mug which is on the larger size of things.
  2. Spray the inside with non stick spray if you have it.
  3. Lay 1 refrigerated biscuit in the bottom.
  4. In a 1200w microwave microwave for 30 seconds.
  5. Add a spoonful of marinara sauce on top with some cheese, pepperoni and any dried herbs you want.
  6. Microwave for 1 minute so it rises up and the toppings are bubbling and melted together.
  7. Enjoy immediately!

Yes you could make the dough homemade with milk and oil etc. but we are going with fast and easy here. 😉
