This recipe takes only 12-15 minutes in an OTG. It’s absolutely delicious and a lip-smacking pizza in a mug.


You can make pizza sauce easily at home. Indeed I have used homemade pizza sauce in this recipe. I will share the recipe here soon. Nevertheless, if you dont want to go too elaborate in making pizza sauce you can make instant sauce using tomato sauce / ketchup at home. Take the tomato sauce, oregano, chilly flakes, paprika or chilly powder, a dash of black pepper. Add garlic powder and onion powder too if available. Mix them well together and your instant sauce is ready.


There are hell lot of different vegetarian and non-vegetarian toppings options. You can also choice the toppings as per your taste buds and likings.

Some common vegetarian toppings which can be used are onion, tomato, bell peppers, sweet corn, olives, mushroom, paneer (cottage cheese), jalapeno etc.

Along with the veggies you can use any non-vegetarian topping like any meat which can be freshly cooked nor any leftover meats, pepperoni, sausages, bacon etc.


Apart from mozzarella cheese, you can also use other combination of cheese like processed cheese, cheddar, parmesan, ricotta etc along with mozzarella cheese.


You can make mug pizza in pressure cooker, khadai, or pan/pot over gas top.

To make pizza without oven you just need to preheat the pressure cooker/kadhai/pan. Put a stand and bake at low heat until until it rises up and the toppings are bubbling and cheese melts approximately 15-20 minutes.


You can microwave this mug pizza in microwave mode on full powder for 2 minutes. But check at 1:30 minutes as the microwave power differs from oven to oven. Timing will differ upon ones microwave oven power.
