Pizza made in the Air Fryer and cut into slices.

Why you should make Pizza in the Air Fryer:

  • Quick – Just a few simple steps and ready to eat in less than 10 minutes!
  • Crispy – The air fryer takes homemade pizza to the next level with delicious crispy crust!
  • Pizza night – Set up a pizza bar and let everyone make their own mini pizza!

How to make Air Fryer Pizza:

Roll Out Crust: Preheat air fryer to 400 degrees. Roll crust out really thin (less than ¼ inch). Prick all over with a fork, (this will help it bake flat). Spray bottom of air fryer basket. Lift up crust and carefully place in the basket.

Pre-Bake Crusts: Cook in air fryer for 1 minute, then flip to the other side and cook an additional minute. (check on the crust after 30 seconds to make sure it hasn’t flipped/folded in half.) Repeat with remaining crusts.

Layer Toppings: Add toppings to pre-baked crusts. I suggest adding the cheese last, because the pepperoni and lighter toppings may blow off while cooking.

Cook: Lower air fryer temp to 370 and cook pizzas for 1-3 minutes or until warmed through and cheese has melted. (You can open the basket to check).

Serve: I love to serve pizzas with a salad and these Cheesy Breadsticks!

Make Ahead and Freezing Instructions:

To Make Ahead: You can make homemade pizza dough the night before and stick in a bowl, covered, in the fridge to rise. You could also make homemade pizza sauce several days in advance.

To Freeze: Pre-bake crusts and add toppings. Place pizzas on a baking sheet and stick in the freezer for 30 minutes, to flash freeze. Then, wrap tightly in plastic wrap and stack them inside a freezer safe ziplock bag. Freeze for up to 3 months.

To Air Fry Frozen Pizza: Preheat air fryer to 370 degrees. Cook frozen pizza for 6-8 minutes, or until cheese is melted and crust is crispy.

Recipe Variations:

  • Store-bought Pizza Crust: You can use small boboli or flatbread crusts instead of pizza dough. Skip the step of baking the crust. Add toppings and cook at 370 degrees until cheese has melted and crust is crisp.
  • How to Reheat Pizza in Air Fryer: Take leftover pizza out of fridge. Preheat air fryer to 370 degrees. Cook for 2-3 minutes, or until hot and crispy.

  1. This was not a hit. The dough did not cook thoroughly so more time is needed in the air fryer than stated. A good idea for a couple of pizzas but not practical for a larger number due to the pre-baking then additional baking. Would love an updated recipe with improvements!

  2. 5 stars
    Done this whole thing, including dough & sauce, & the results are yummy!!! Plus, making my own pizza dough means I can have pizzas which fit perfectly in the air fryer!!! Great fun!!!
