The 2-Minute Pizza In A Mug That Will Change Your Life

Homemade pizza ready in under 2 minutes is a serious game-changer! Thanks to professional chef and food blogger Gemma Stafford, she’s created the ultimate way for people to enjoy the Italian favorite that’s so easy, quick and really delicious. I’m ready to dig in!

The pizza in a mug recipe went viral earlier this year when people discovered the brilliant food hack. And Miss Gemma, who used to work in Michelin Star restaurants, decided to pursue her lifelong passion of teaching people her culinary secrets like this one – and we are SO glad!

This mouthwatering recipe is unbelievably easy with all the ingredients prepared in your microwaveable mug. You could also improvise your recipe to make it more healthier for lower calories. If you have little time but want something VERY TASTY, and love Pizza? This is it.

And the flavor?

“It tastes just like pizza – it’s soft, it’s gooey, it’s insane. You have to try this.”


Earlier this year Miss Gemma was a guest on the TV show The Doctors with Dr. Travis Stork to show him how it’s done. After tasting the pizza in a mug, he shouts:

“I love you! It changed my life!”

“Microwave pizza that you can make on your own that’s healthy? This is AWE-SOME!”
