    How to Make Air Fried Pizza

    1. Preheat air fryer to 375F and set for a 7 minute cook time.
    2. Cut pizza dough in half to make two sheets. Shape the dough in a circle, crimping the edges up to form a crust. Make sure it will fit into your air fryer. You’ll be cooking one pizza at a time.
    3. Brush pizza dough with olive oil on all sides. Place dough in the air fryer basket.
    4. Spread on pizza sauce. Top with cheese, pepperoni and green pepper (or any other toppings you like).
    5. Air fry for 7 minutes. Remove pizza with two spatulas. Repeat the same process for the second sheet of pizza dough.

    Recipe Tips

    • Assemble the pizza in the air fryer. Do not try to assemble it outside the air fryer and transfer it in. Been there, done that and don’t recommend. It’s much easier to get the dough in there and add all your toppings right inside the basket.
    • Use TWO spatulas to remove the pizza from the air fryer. These aren’t little pizzas. You could lose toppings if you attempt to remove the pizza with only one spatula. Put a spatula under the two sides of the pizza and carefully lift out to a plate.
    • Every air fryer is different. My Ninja Foodi Air Fryer cooks this pizza perfectly in 7 minutes. Keep an eye on the pizza by checking in on it periodically. Your air fryer could require a slightly longer or shorter time to cook.
    • When you are preparing the pizza dough, make sure it will fit in the air fryer basket. Don’t worry if it’s not a perfect circle. It will still taste good!
    • You can leave off the extra virgin olive oil if you want. Even though my air fryer is non-stick, I still put it on there for extra flavor and so it won’t stick. Sometimes food still sticks to my non-stick basket!
    • Whatever you do, DO NOT use an aerosol cooking spray (like PAM) in your air fryer. It will ruin the coating.
    • Use cheese that you shred yourself! The pre-shredded cheeses have extra ingredients in them and I find they don’t melt the same.

    Can You Make This Pizza Ahead of Time?

    You can get all the toppings you want ready ahead of time, but I don’t recommend assembling the pizza until you are ready to cook. For the best results, make it right before you plan to eat it.

    How Long to Cook Pizza in the Air Fryer?

    I found 7 minutes to be the sweet spot for my Ninja Foodi Air Fryer. Check on your pizza periodically to see if it needs more or less cooking time as air fryer brands cooking times can differ.

    Storage Tips

    If there happens to be any leftovers, store them in the fridge for up to 2 to 3 days. You can reheat in the microwave OR reheat the pizza in the air fryer!

    How to Reheat Pizza in the Air Fryer

    It’s easy! Set your air fryer to 325F for 4 minutes. Pop the cold pizza in the air fryer and it will heat it up much better and way more tastier than the microwave ever could.

    1. I tried this recipe and followed your directions. After seven minutes of air frying the top was cooked and the bottom was raw. I changed it to bake for a few minutes to try to cook the bottom. Don’t know what went wrong.

      1. Hi Deb,

        I’m sorry to hear you had issues! What kind of air fryer do you have? I use a Ninja Foodi. I know that air fryer times can vary based on the air fryer. It sounds like yours might require a longer cooking time. What kind of pizza crust did you use? I used the Pillsbury pizza crust.

        1. I have a five quart Gourmia. I used Pillsbury dough too. I tried again. This time I baked the crust with no toppings til it was slightly browned. Then I added the toppings and I think I air fried. Came out much better. Still needs a little tweaking but it was pretty good. Thanks.

          1. I have the same raw dough issue. My pepperoni was crispy. I think I’ll try ti cut the 1/2 of the pizza dough in half again and see if that helps! Precooking the dough will be the next idea after that.

    2. I love your recipes. Tx
