If you have an air fryer, you already know how magical this little machine can be. The air fryer allows you to enjoy your favorite fried food but offers it in a more nutritious way. Plus, it’s easy to put some food in there, relax, and simply wait on your meal to finish cooking. However, you probably figured that there are some foods you could never make in an air fryer. One of those foods is probably pizza. However, you should be excited to learn that it actually is possible to make pizza in your air fryer. Take a look at how you can pull off this recipe.


One thing you’re going to love about this pizza is the fact that you don’t need many ingredients. Also, keep in mind that you can add pretty much any topping you want to this pizza – feel free to get creative. This is just an idea to get you started. That being said, you’ll need:

Now that you have all your ingredients ready to go, you can start throwing this recipe together. First, preheat your air fryer to 375 degrees Fahrenheit, and spray the basket with cooking oil. This will ensure that nothing sticks to the basket. Dry off your mozzarella (you don’t want it to be too watery and interfere with the frying process).

Next, roll out your pizza dough and carefully place it in the basket of your air fryer. Now is the time when you get to add all your toppings. Start with olive oil, and then add some tomato sauce that’s seasoned to your liking. Then, rip up your cheese and add bits of it around the surface of the pizza. That stuff is going to melt and make your pizza taste downright delicious.

Finally, it’s time to cook your pizza. Since the air fryer cooks food relatively fast, you don’t have to sit around forever. In fact, your pizza should be done in about seven minutes. After that, you can add your basil, parmesan cheese, pepper flakes, or whatever else you want to add to the toppings.

Now that you see how easy this recipe is, what are you waiting for? Try it out for yourself!
