For spontaneous hunger: recipe for a cup of pizza in just one minute
Sometimes pizza is the only real solution. If there is no time to prepare and you need it very quickly, we take a cup of pizza – and satisfy spontaneous cravings in record time. The recipe.
Pizza – everyone knows it, everyone loves it. It is the very symbol of Italian food and is one of the most popular dishes in the world. The first pizza, topped with tomato sauce and prepared as we know it today, probably originated in Naples around 1520. However, the dish has become so popular that the art of making Neapolitan pizza has been officially recognized as an intangible cultural heritage for mankind by UNESCO.
World champion in pizza
What is her favorite way to eat? To walk, to take away, straight from the hand. Every second, 951 pizzas are eaten worldwide – that’s 30 billion pieces a year, mainly thanks to the enormously high consumption of pizza in the United States. While Italians contribute five kilos of pizza per capita to the total each year, each American alone eats up 13 kilos per year. The traditional Italian variant with a wafer-thin base, baked in a stone oven and greased with garlic oil and the finest tomato sauce has very little in common with today’s American-modern, thick-based variant with cheese crust and minced meat spread. It does not matter, because both versions show how versatile pizza can be – after all, each tastes incredibly good in its own way.
Blitz pizza: fluffy dough in just a few minutes
Our mug pizza is also versatile. However, it also does not claim to be able to hold a candle to Italian pizza, but it is perfect for spontaneous pizza cravings and scores with a wonderfully fluffy dough. Another bonus: the Blitz pizza is mixed together in a few minutes and baked in the microwave in just one minute. It is not necessary to let the pizza dough rise for hours and painstakingly to roll it out, the kitchen stays clean and the desire is satisfied in just a few minutes. It does not get better than that, does it?
The basic recipe for Blitz pizza dough consists of only five ingredients, which are usually found in every kitchen. A quick dough is stirred together by flour, baking powder, a pinch of salt, milk and olive oil. What should not be missing on a pizza? Tomato sauce. The quick version is made from tomato passata, garlic, oregano and a hint of pepper. Alternatively, you can use a ready-made pizza sauce or make your own in advance. The rest of the preparation is self-explanatory: cheese and cold cuts of your choice complete the magnificent specimen and the lightning-fast pizza goes into the microwave. Baked for a minute at the highest level and voilà – the pizza in a mug steams in front of you. How it smells!
Multifaceted pizza fun
You can use almost anything you want as a topping. Toppings such as corn, olive slices or capers work especially well. Meat lovers go for mini pepperoni, exotic for pineapple slices. Vegetable toppings such as sliced mushrooms, peppers or fresh tomatoes are also suitable as exciting pizza toppings and give great nuances to the cup pizza delight. Let your creativity run free and discover your favorite variant. Good appetite.
