Can I make my own pizza dough and cook it in the microwave? Is there any chance that I could reach acceptable results?

Define "acceptable". With the introduction of microwave ovens, one "selling point" was the ability to bake bread without it getting a crust. That would generally be unacceptable for a pizza, but if you're just hungry your mileage may vary. – SourDoh Apr 11 '14 at 20:55
@sourd'oh: Acceptable: somethign you would eat despite having other choices, or as your first choice. How can you bake bread in a microwave? You mean from scratch? – Quora Feans Apr 11 '14 at 21:03
In that case, assuming your other choices include something at least as good as peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, then no, you cannot make a pizza that good in the microwave. – SAJ14SAJ Apr 12 '14 at 3:28

Pure microwave: no way Microwave with combo/grill functions: maybe.

I bake cakes in a combo microwave oven and results are pretty good, using manufacturer suggested pans and specific recipes.
