Binging with Babish 5 Year Anniversary: Pizza in a Cup from The Jerk

Birt 9 feb 2021
This week, to celebrate 5 years of BWB, we’re taking the show back to its roots - its mumbly, un-ironed, concerningly higher-pitched roots. Thank you all for sticking with me!!
Music: "Cream on Chrome" by Ratatat

  • This episode was true to original Babish form in more ways than you might imagine: I filmed it Sunday during the second big snowstorm here in NYC, and was originally going for Clemenza’s sauce from The Godfather. When I realized I had no red wine, and couldn’t get any due to the storm, I decided to breeze through the sauce recipe and pivot to Pizza in a Cup when I found I had the ingredients on hand. Yesterday morning, when I went downstairs to start editing the project, I discovered the heat was broken (again). I waited as long as I could for my two space heaters to bring up the temperature above 50F, and worked late to finish everything at the last minute. It was just like the good ole days, and despite it being occasionally frustrating/challenging/uncomfortable, I loved every minute of it. Thanks for celebrating my anniversary with me!

    • @Elijah Engstrom Why thank you!!

    • you are adorable in this video

    • No problem mate

    • Ohhh, that explains the hair

    • Make the prawn soup dish from Treasure Planet!

  • The wig is so strange but I will not be able to see you without it now

  • Humanity stopped being itself after it had to witness Babish with HAIR

  • Forbidden John oliver

  • oh hi oliver

  • Didn't you just make a weird calzone..?

  • Why you no bald?

  • Okay am I crazy or did the channel name change?

  • :O

  • This entire video is just a big pat on the back to long-term subscribers.

  • I saw the thumbnail and just thought “whatthehell”

  • Andrew with hair both terrifies and arouses me........... Am conflicted. 🤔

  • Maybe to get a better pizza in a cup you should try a Chicago deep dish style... start with the crust as high as you can in the cup... par bake and then add the toppings... just a thought so that way it isn’t an abundance of crust to toppings ratio

  • Banish with hair is slightly unsettling

  • I checked the date of the video cause I thought maybe he actually had hair in older videos. Cause I’m smart.

  • I thought you were bald.

  • He has hair noooooooo he doesnt look the same Ohhhhhhh its a wig

  • The first thing I thought was, "Why does he have hair?".

  • Man weaves are it guys

  • That intro and music... Yep that's old babish

  • Put a slice of cheese pizza in a blender with some water, blend it, pour it in a cup and put little pepperonis on it. When did this become hard?

  • am i the only one who thought the wig was weird..?

  • He turned into hideo Kojima

  • 0/10 You didn’t follow the recipe, Chowder.

  • AHG! HAIR!!! HE HAS HAIR!!! That caught me off guard

  • world

  • my first reaction; he has HAIR.... how!?

    • I thought I needed my eyes checked 😂

  • i feel like you got younger


  • What in the babish Lite ™️ is going on here!!


  • PIZZA IN A CUP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • in a cup...what!?! 🍕 in a ☕️

  • no one's mentioning how you shifted you voice up slightly to be more like back when you were an idealistic young man whose soul hadn't been crushed into oblivion by the real world

  • Ay you got hair

  • I started watching you when your channel first came out, and the man I was dating at the time became obsessed we diligently watched all of your new releases together, and we really bonded over it he killed himself in January 2019, and left letting the world "know" that it was my fault of all the things about him I keep with me, your channel is one of my favorites my memories of watching you with him fill me with warm feelings everytime, and I still watch you constantly and feel grateful for the happy memories it's crazy to think we started watching you 5 years ago all the love and happiness to you, I'm so proud of you and most importantly, thank you

  • me: oh pizza in a cup, thats nice me seeing babish with hair: WHAT THE FU-


  • Congratulations on 5 years you legend! Here's to another (hopefully hairless) 5 more years of cooking and delicious creations!

  • How about layering several layers on pizza in a cup?

  • That’s cheating Babish

  • Lol the hair I was wondering who that was

  • I thought I needed my eyes checked 😂

  • "But, I still think we can do better, so I raised pigs and cows and grew my own wheat on a farm."

  • can you do the thing they eat in MOM series, in the bistro the show has 8 seasons but they once did not reveal what was that

    • Just like 'pizza' in a cup, an 'omlette' in a cup is just as horrific.

  • Seriously love your content babish 🔥🔥🔥

  • Feel like I have warped into another parallel universe. Only nightmares could dream of 🤯.

  • Listening to Green Day with Babish

  • Impressive dedication to the bit and attention to detail Babish. You sound a little like you're trying to be Ash from the original Pokemon Indigo League series

  • Everyone's talking about Babish's hair, but no one is talking about his change in his voice

  • Feels like a personification or like someone else making this video, it’s interesting and different. My eyes are peeled

  • he got hair

  • .......... I can't see past the hair.

  • Babish hair

  • I know this question probably won't be seen/read given how busy you are/safe you need to be at this time, but out of curiosity, do you think the recipe would've worked out better in any way if you coated the inside of the cup with the dough in such a way where - after it finished baking inside of the mug - you could then pull the whole thing out of the mug and you'd have sauce and cheese inside of a handle-free crust-mug?

  • It's weird to see babish with hair...

  • Are you feeling sick for this video? Your voice sounds scratchy.

  • that song clip in the beginning transported me back in time

  • Brought back the old intro and background music. Doooope

  • “My name is Oliver Babish” took me for a ride I did not expect.

    • It's a stage name i think

  • Just like 'pizza' in a cup, an 'omlette' in a cup is just as horrific.

  • I was frightened by the hair, but Cream on Chrome made it all better again.


  • Time to f**k up this pineapple babish 10 years ago

  • So the logo doesn't make sense anymore

  • Great job love it 👌👌👌

  • Eyyy that’s the theme from frasier haha I’m young but I love that show

  • At first I thought, babish used to have hair? Then I read the comments. I am very upset and scared.

  • You know that surrealism concept of what if someone replaced every single item of furniture in your house with an exactly identical replica down to the scratches ‘ stains etc ,, this is what this video feels like

  • That intro music... felt like I travelled back in time

  • Only real Naruto fans will know this joke.. Itachi: hey binging with babish.. wanna fight? Itachi and babish: So anyway we started cooking

  • You look way younger with hair.

  • Ratatat🤘

  • I was prepared for the intro and even the voice but the WIG


  • "Pizza in a cup" *makes pzone*

  • Therapist: Babish with hair isn't real he can't hurt you Babish with hair: 0:30

  • Could you do TURRŌN from ENA, temptation stairway?

  • I would've made like a pizza calzone big enough to fit in the cup, then I'd put the usual sauce, cheese and pepperoni on top and throw it into the oven. That's just my take on it tho, what would y'all doo?

  • that intro's so early babish

  • I'm going to assume this is how Babish looked like in college

  • Yo that bread tho looks fire


  • I did not know he had hair back then.

  • Thank you for Babish for inspiring me to try stuff out. i cant always follow your recipes with your fancy ingredients, but I've done some of your simpler versions or improvised on others. Thank you for the help and entertainment!

  • This just reminds me how much I liked the old intro


  • Feels like a pizza swirl with thin layers, cut into the height of the cup and placed within it would've been the obvious choice here.

  • Hold out Babish the vaccines are almost here 😵

  • I honestly love the old music

  • Isn’t that just a calzone?

  • So he made a hot pocket?

  • When the manscaped sponsorship ends

  • no pepperoni, please

  • take it off.

  • سلام دوستان از کانال من هم دیدن کنید

  • Looks like a dollar tree Chris angel

  • This is the moment binging with babish turns into Heisenberg

  • dd you get your hair died
