Mug Pizza

If you’re looking for a “cool” after school snack, quick lunch, or fun activity to do when you have a few kids come over you should try this easy pizza in a mug recipe here.

I know….good right??!! It’s filled with the ooey gooey cheese and toppings you love and it only takes about 2 minutes to make each one!

You can easily load it up with whatever you like as far as toppings go. Add diced mushrooms, olives, or even substitute Canadian bacon for the pepperoni.

  1. Refrigerated biscuits
  2. Spaghetti sauce – we like this one 
  3. Pepperoni
  4. Mozzarella
  5. Pizza toppings – diced pepperoni and olives are perfect for this
  6. Mug

Make a pizza bar of sorts if there are several people and everyone can really make their own because they’re just so easy to do.

Pizza in a Mug

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”.

  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.

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

Can you put pizza dough in the microwave?

You could cut refrigerated pizza dough and use that instead of biscuits to make our easy mug pizza recipe here. It isn’t as thick so you would want to cut into circles and double up to be the same size but will work well as the crust for a quick 2 minute meal.

I love this ideas for mug meals and deserts. Especially for traveling in our fifthwheel. I have Tupperware soup mugs I think would work great for these meals. Will try them out!

I just found this site! I am cooking for 1. My pizza change is for real Italian sausage! Grew up in Chicago area before pepperoni became a thing! It would be worth the taste to have precooked sausage in my freezer! Would have loved the ‘Mug’ recipes in my farming, working, and wife, mom years!
