I continue to find more and more ways to use my air fryer. It has really made life easy, especially during the week when we’ve had a long day and have no interest in making an elaborate meal. Who am I kidding? When have I ever made an elaborate meal during the week?
We like to keep things easy around here. Easy BUT delicious. My post today isn’t as much of a recipe as it is just a confirmation that you CAN make pizza in your air fryer. I’ve never had any problems with any of the toppings flying around. Some people place a trivet over their pizza while it bakes, but I haven’t needed to use one.
I made a margherita pizza, but you can add whatever toppings you prefer. I started with adding some balsamic drizzle to the crust.
For a normal cheese or pepperoni pizza, you would use pizza sauce. Next comes the cheese. Let me caution you, here. This cheese layer is an optional one. Don’t put A TON of cheese on the pizza or it will just end up gloppy (is that a word?). We’ll put more on later. 😉
Sometimes when I add more cheese, I find I do need to bake it a bit longer. Just keep that in mind.
Now start putting your toppings on. Same rule of thumb as the cheese. Don’t go overboard. I thinly sliced a Roma tomato and placed the slices around the pizza.
I strategically placed some fresh basil in between the tomato slices.
Sprinkled a couple mini cubes of mozzarella over the top.
And then topped it all with more cheese. I’m such a hypocrite. Please remember what I said about the cheese. I’m from Wisconsin so I just can’t help it. You? I’m sure there’s help for you.
You’re looking at an “at least 10-minutes baking time” pizza here. That’s just because I went a bit overboard (which I like to do). So remember, do as I say, not as I do.
Now get that pizza pie in the air fryer basket!
A 10-inch crust fits perfectly into the basket. What you get is a pretty delicious pizza.
A little more balsamic drizzle and fresh basil over the top of my creation and I was ready to eat!
So, pizza in the air fryer? Yep, totally possible. I wonder what I’ll discover I can cook in this beauty next week?
