Easy Personal Pizza in the Air Fryer

This Air Fryer Pizza is on repeat in our house. We have been making it nonstop since I bought an air fryer. This recipe is a game changer! It is so simple to make and it tastes as good as any pizzeria! We actually stopped ordering pizza because we love this air fryer pizza so much! I love that this recipe is for individual pizzas and we can customize them with our own toppings. This has quickly become one of our favorite pizza recipes. You can’t beat delicious pizza in less time than delivery. Whip up some breadsticks and a salad for a meal better than your favorite pizzeria.

What is an Air Fryer?

An air fryer is basically a countertop convection oven. It circulates hot air around the food for faster cooking. The rapidly circulating air makes the food crispy, much like a deep fryer but with less oil. You also don’t need to preheat the air fryer, making cooking in the air fryer much faster than cooking in the oven.

How to Make Pizza in the Air Fryer

This cooking process for this delicious homemade pizza is effortless with only a few simple ingredients. Cut a ball of pizza dough into 4-equal pieces. Roll and stretch one piece of raw dough into a 6-inch round. Lay the dough round in the air fryer basket, and brush with 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Spread sauce on top of the pizza crust. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top of the sauce. Arrange toppings over cheese. Cook until the cheese has melted and the crust is golden brown. Transfer the pizza to a plate. Garnish with fresh basil or Italian seasoning and parmesan cheese and serve immediately. Repeat with remaining dough pieces. Easy peasy!

Tips & Frequently Asked Questions

  • I use a Philips Air Fryer: https://amzn.to/2Rt5AQ5
  • I use store-bought premade pizza dough for the pizza. I find it at my local grocery store in the bakery section at the grocery store. You could also ask your favorite pizzeria to sell you a pound of dough.
  • One pound of pizza dough will make four personal pizzas.
  • Want to use Homemade Pizza Dough? Try our 2-Ingredient Pizza Dough. It is made with Greek yogurt so you will be packing in a ton of extra protein!
  • Can use naan bread for the pizza base you don’t want to use homemade dough.
  • For the sauce, I use my No-Cook Pizza Sauce. It is delicious! 1000% better than the canned/jarred pizza sauces.
  • I topped the pizza with Italian sausage, pepperoni slices, and fresh mushrooms. Use your favorite toppings: olives, bell peppers, ham, pineapple, or onions all are delicious.
  • You don’t have to use the exact measurements listed in the recipe. Use as much sauce, cheese, and toppings as you prefer.
  • For best results, don’t overload the pizza with toppings.
  • Store leftover pizza in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

    1. I don't think the crust would be as crispy if you cooked it on parchment paper. It really isn't hard to get the crust in and out of the air fryer, but you can use parchment paper if you prefer.

  1. Yippee! I recently bought an air fryer and have been playing with it. Mine doesn't have a basket, it has 2 racks sorta of like and oven. I can wait to try this. Keep the air fryer recipes coming. Thanks, Steph
