Ingredients

  • 16 oz ball of pizza dough, divided into 2, My personal pizza dough recipe (Note: You can stretch this recipe into 3 balls of dough if you need.)
  • Pizza sauce
  • Olive oil
  • Garlic salt (optional)
  • Italian herbs (optional)
  • Shredded Italian blend or mozzarella cheese, You can also use torn up mini mozzarella balls
  • Any other toppings you'd like to add to your pizza

Equipment

Instructions 

Preparing the dough (Skip to assembling the pizza if you're using pita or naan):

  • Preheat the air fryer to 400º F.
  • Sprinkle a bit of flour over a clean surface and divide your dough ball into 2 balls (you can stretch it to 3 balls if you need). Work the dough out into round pizzas that are just about the size of your air fryer basket.
  • Spray the bottom of the air fryer basket with a bit of olive oil or non-stick spray.
  • Brush the top of the crust with a tiny bit of olive oil. If you want a flavored crust, sprinkle some garlic salt and Italian herbs over the outer crust. (Optional, but we recommend it!)
  • With a fork, carefully poke holes in the center of the dough (avoiding the outer crust area). This will keep the middle of the dough from ballooning as it cooks.
  • Transfer the dough to the air fryer basket and pre-cook it for 3 minutes. Pre-cooking the shell will help you get a nice golden crust in the end without overcooking the cheese and other toppings.

Assembling the pizza:

  • Open the air fryer basket and dress your pizza—you can keep the crust in the air fryer while you do so, for efficiency. (If using pita or naan, just place it in the air fryer basket since it's already been prebaked).
  • When the pizza is ready, close your air fryer basket and cook the pizza for 5 minutes.

Notes

Instead of using fresh pizza dough, you can make this even simpler by using pita or naan as your base.
