When you become tired of eating the same old thing every day, what food comes to mind? Or for a hangout when you want to invite your pals over? You must have pizza on your mind. Can you cook pizza at home, though? Pizza is rather simple to make in microwave ovens. Apart from that, if you have an OTG oven, that could help too.

Pizza desires may be quickly and easily satisfied, even if they do not have the same crunchy crust as a regular pizza. Here's an easy guide to baking pizza in a microwave oven from the comfort of your kitchen.

5 Tips To Remember

  • Use A Microwave-Safe Plate: Ensure that the plate or pizza pan you use is microwave-safe and can withstand high temperatures without warping or melting.
  • Pre-Cook The Dough: To prevent a soggy crust, pre-cook the pizza dough in the microwave for about a minute before adding the sauce, cheese, and toppings. This helps to partially cook the dough and ensures a crispier crust.
  • Thin Crust Works Best: Opt for a thinner crust when making microwave pizza. Thicker crusts may not cook evenly in the microwave and can result in a doughy texture.
  • Spread Ingredients Evenly: Distribute the pizza sauce, cheese, and toppings evenly over the partially cooked dough. This helps to ensure that the pizza cooks evenly and that all flavours are well distributed.
  • Use Microwave-Safe Toppings: Choose toppings that are suitable for microwave cooking. Avoid using toppings that release too much moisture, as this can make the pizza soggy.

Microwave Pizza Recipe

Here's how you can make a pizza from scratch using a microwave:


  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup of water
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1/4 cup of pizza sauce
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Your favourite pizza toppings (e.g., pepperoni, mushrooms, bell peppers, onions)


  • Mix the baking powder, salt, and all-purpose flour together in a mixing bowl. Blend well.
  • Stir the dry ingredients with the olive oil and water. Stir to produce a soft dough.
  • Dust a pizza pan or dish that is safe to use in the microwave. Using your hands, spread the dough into a circle that is approximately 1/4 inch thick on the plate.
  • To partially cook the dough, microwave it for one minute on high.
  • Take out the dough that has been half-cooked in the microwave. Evenly cover the dough with pizza sauce, leaving a thin border all the way around.
  • Over the sauce, scatter the shredded mozzarella cheese.
  • Arrange your preferred pizza toppings over the cheese layer.
  • For a further two to three minutes, or when the cheese is melted and bubbling and the dough is well baked, place the pizza in the microwave on high.
  • After taking the plate out of the microwave with caution (it will be hot), let the pizza cool for a minute or two.
  • After cutting the pizza into wedges, enjoy your pizza.
