Cup O' Pizza Walkthrough

OK Gang, it's time we got around to showing how it's done.
We've spent many hours in our laboratory perfecting the hottest, tastiest, cup of pizza.
This Cup O' Pizza recipe is the quick and easy version, using store-bought ingredients.

Here's what you'll need (makes 4 cups o' pizza):
4 oven friendly coffee mugs
1 tube of pre-made pizza crust (we've been using the 13.8 oz Pillsbury Classic)
1 jar of pizza sauce
1 package of deli-style pepperoni
1 bag of mozzarella or pizza cheese
Olive oil and basting brush

STEP 1:  Pop open the delicious tube of
triple-bleached goo, to which we owe our
robust physiques!

STEP 2: Cut the dough roll into 4 equal sections.  1 section for each cup.  Then cut each section down even further into 3 sections, which will become the 
basis for our patented Flavor Layer Technology (TM).

STEP 3: Get that cat outta here!!

STEP 4: Coat your cups (or dough slices) with olive oil

STEP 5:  Begin building your first Flavor Layer by dropping a section of dough into the bottom of the cup.  Very good!

STEP 6:  Add a large spoonful of sauce, a slice of pepperoni, some cheese, and a sprinkle of oregano and you've got your first layer.  (This tutorial is the kid version, so experimenting with other classic ingredients is certainly encouraged.)

STEP 7:  Repeat process on remaining dough layers.  3 layers per cup.

Mmm, now you're ready to load 'em into the oven.

STEP 8:  Depending on your oven, you may need to tweak the following settings.  Keep a close eye on your mugs the first time out, so you can make temperature adjustments accordingly.  Here's what has worked for us.

Set your oven timer for 30 minutes and your oven at 425 degrees.  In order to minimize the possibility of the mugs cracking due to a sudden change in temperature, we put the Cups O' Pizza in the oven during the preheat process, so they gradually warm up.  

STEP 9:  Seriously dude, get that cat out of here.

STEP 10:  After 30 minutes, take a look at your cups.
They should look something like this.  If not, leave 'em in a just a few more minutes.


Because you've created what amounts to 4 big chunks of energy efficient pizza insulation, please allow them to cool down for at least 10 minutes before handing them off to a child or really hungry child-like friend.

  3. But look, how's it taste? I've been looking for a decent Cup o'Pizza ever since that place went out of business. Is it worth it? Will my wife eat it? Or will she say, "And take these snails away and bring those toasted cheese appetizers like I asked you!"

  8. Cat juggling?!?!?!

  9. We loved it! Though our oven broke halfway through and had to finish in the microwave. Can't wait to make again in a working oven!

  10. Thanks for sharing this recipe it's definitely a really good reward for my brother who got his Food Handler Certification last week. But still work on the dough first. I'm not really the cook-type but I'd like to do something special for him.


  11. Pizza Equipment

  12. Awww... The cat just wants to experience pizza, so perhaps you can find some mouse ears or rat tails for its pizza?! :-)

  13. Tried this recipe a few weeks ago; excellent! My wife & I will be trying this again (perhaps making our own dough next time).

  14. All I need is this recipe, the ashtray, the remote control, the paddle game, and this magazine, and the chair. And that's *all* I need.
