Pizza in a mug recipe and why my daughter ordered her first takeaway….

Would you agree that sometimes your good intentions get you into trouble?

Well, this is exactly what happened this week.

You see, me and Ottilie decided to prove the doubters wrong (or at least try to)

By making a pizza

in a mug

^^^ Yep, in a mug…

That was gluten-free (so daddy can eat it without sitting on the loo all day)

Now, the doubters (my wife and Nonna)

Were saying it can never be done…

And well, we did it!

Whether it was ‘good’ or not…

I’ll let you decide.

Look: ‘revolting’ as Mrs Fruci put it

Taste: ‘Not too bad’ said Mrs Fruci

Ottilie’s verdict: ‘Hello is this Pizza Express? Can I have an extra large margarita, some garlic dough balls and a slice chocolate fudge cake with extra cream please?”

How to do it:

1) For the base, mix the following in the bottom of a mug:

* 4 tbsp ground almond (or any flour)

* Not Jamie Oliver’s DASH of salt

*1/2 tsp sodium bicarbonate

*1/2 tsp mixed herbs

*3 tbsp milk (I used semi skimmed)

* 1 tbsp oil (I used olive oil)

Then, microwave for about 30 seconds

2) Top with 4 tbsp tomato sauce (I used passata) and 20 g cheese (I used cheddar)

You can also add some ham / pepperoni, more herbs and pepper at this point

3) Microwave for about 45 – 60 seconds / you can feel the base is hard and cheese has melted (but don’t do it too long…)

^^^ Did you know that just these simple swaps could help you lose 20 lbs in a year (if you did this with a meal you have every day)?​
Let me know how you get on!

PS. If you’re going to have a pizza, I’d probably just go for the pizza…
