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 grab a cup of pizza – and satisfy spontaneous cravings in record time. The recipe.
Pizza – everyone knows it, everyone loves it. It is the epitome of Italian cuisine and is one of the most popular dishes worldwide. The first pizza, topped with tomato sauce and prepared as we know it today, probably originated around 1520 in Naples. However, the dish has become so popular that the art of Neapolitan pizza making has been officially recognized by UNESCO as an intangible cultural heritage of humanity.
Pizza world champion
What is her favorite way to eat? To go, to take away, straight out of hand. Every second, 951 pizzas are eaten worldwide – that’s 30 billion pieces per year, mainly thanks to the tremendously high consumption of pizza in the US. While the Italians contribute five kilograms of pizza per capita to the total each year, each American alone eats 13 kilograms per year. The traditional Italian variant with a wafer-thin base, baked in a stone oven and smeared with garlic oil and the finest tomato sauce has very little in common with today’s American-modern, thick-based variant with a cheese crust and ground beef topping. It doesn’t matter, because both versions show how versatile pizza can be – after all, each one tastes incredibly good in its own way.
Instant pizza: soft dough in just a few minutes
Our cup pizza is also versatile. However, it does not claim to be able to hold a candle to Italian pizza either, but it is perfect for spontaneous pizza cravings and scores with a deliciously soft dough. Another bonus: the Blitz Pizza is mixed together in minutes and microwaved in just one minute. There is no need to let the pizza dough rise for hours and painstakingly roll it out, the kitchen stays clean and cravings are satisfied in just a few minutes. It doesn’t get any better than that, does it?
The basic recipe of the Blitz pizza dough consists of only five ingredients, which can usually be found in every kitchen. A quick dough is stirred together from flour, baking powder, a pinch of salt, milk and olive oil. What should not be missing on a pizza? The tomato sauce. The quick version is made from tomato passata, garlic, oregano and a touch of pepper. Alternatively, you can use a ready-made pizza sauce or produce your own in advance. The rest of the preparation is self-explanatory: cheese and toppings of your choice complete the magnificent specimen and the lightning-fast pizza goes into the microwave oven. Bake for a minute on the highest level and voilà – the pizza in a cup is steaming in front of you. How it smells!
Multi-layered pizza fun
You can use almost anything your heart desires as a topping. Toppings such as corn, olive slices or capers work particularly well. Meat lovers go for mini pepperoni, exotics for pineapple slices. Vegetable toppings such as sliced mushrooms, peppers or fresh tomatoes are also suitable as an exciting pizza topping and bring great nuances to the cup of pizza enjoyment. Let your creativity run free and discover your favorite variant. Good appetite.
