Here’s a quick video rundown of how you make our pizza in a mug
- First you’ll need a microwave mug which is on the larger size of things.
- Spray the inside with non stick spray if you have it.
- Lay 1 refrigerated biscuit in the bottom.
- In a 1200w microwave microwave for 30 seconds.
- Add a spoonful of marinara sauce on top with some cheese, pepperoni and any dried herbs you want.
- Microwave for 1 minute so it rises up and the toppings are bubbling and melted together.
- Enjoy immediately!
Yes you could make the dough homemade with milk and oil etc. but we are going with fast and easy here. 😉
Seriously that is how easy this single serving pizza is to make. It’s absolutely perfect when the kids need a quick meal.
There are 5 of us and when it is a “make your own dinner” kinda’ night this is perfect. 8 biscuits come in a package so there’s just enough for a light lunch or dinner for us.
