Pizza Mug Cake

Remember my pizza cupcakes from last year? Well I made a mug cake version.

This was my first venture into a savory mug cake. I am pretty happy with the results. This is great when you want just a single serving.

I don’t think this is as good as the pizza cupcakes, but it’s a good quick fix. Like the pizza cupcakes, I aimed more for a muffin texture for the base. I originally did a fluffy cake version but it felt weird to eat an unsweetened cake.

This tastes best with a side of marinara sauce. You can always pour it over the cake once it’s done cooking too.

I originally made this in a mug. It works great in a mug but because it doesn’t rise much, it was hard to show the cake in a photo. So then I made it in a 6 oz ramekin. It barely just fits in the ramekin. You have to stir it carefully and slowly, but it does work and I love how the cheese slightly bubbles over.

Sprinkle 1 tbsp of cheese evenly across surface of batter. Add the remaining mini pepperoni on top. Cook for approximately 1 minute in microwave.

  1. I’ve never seen a savory mug cake! Looks great!

  2. WOW a savoury mug meal! you are a genius i think i know what im having when i get home……

  3. Pizza…cake. That sounds like such a weird combination, but it looks so good. And those mini pepperoni are cute!

    • It’s a little weird, but it works. If you have time, definitely try the pizza cupcakes on my blog. People really love those!

  4. It took me a while to try this (I wasn’t sure about something called pizza cake), but I’ve finally made it and it’s so yummy! I actually couldn’t stop eating it to finish typing this comment!

  5. Mine came out oily-smelling and tasting.I would suggest keep oil as your last ingredient and add only as much as is necessary to mix the batter.2 tsp should suffice.Add by the teaspoon to see if it need more oil.

  6. So this is pretty amazing. I am trying some recipes that I can cook when I go to college, quick and compact using only a microwave. This is on the list.

  7. Do you know how many calories this has?

    • i do not provide calorie information for my recipes, but there are many great sources on the internet where you can input a recipe and find out

  8. I dont have any baking soda, can I omit it?

  9. Cant wait to try this. Sounds good and easy.

  10. What a neat pizza treat for one! I used my GF all purpose flour and it turned out just fine. Of course, I added more cheese than called for and a bit of sauce on top of the dough before baking. Next time I will remember the Italian seasoning – bet that will be super good!

  11. What are the other alternatives if i dont have an italian seasoning?

    • try doing an online search for making your own Italian seasoning combination! it’s basically a mix up various dry herbs and spices so you don’t have to buy each one individually

  12. making it now! can’t wait!!… btw I’m gonna make like all of your mug cake recipies they look A M A Z I N G
