Air fryer pizza is probably my kids’ favorite meal! I love air fryer recipes in general but especially during the hot months when I’m NOT about to turn on my oven. Made with semi homemade pizza dough you can top them with anything and they’ll come out perfect. (originally published 7/19, affiliate links present)

I mean, who doesn’t love cheesy pizza??!! You can make it in any brand hot air machine, there are lots of brands out there.

They all work the same really, we have a few and there’s no noticeable difference. 😉

Ninja Foodi Pizza

If you love air fryer recipes too, here are some resources to start with:

Air Fryer Pizza Recipe

  • I have a traditional Cosori air fryer as well as a Ninja Foodi which is a pressure cooker too. This will work with either type.

Here’s what we used for our 2 mini personal pizzas.

Yes, of course you can make homemade pizza dough. Not going to happen in my house. I’m all about easy peasy so this mix that only requires water is perfect!

  1. 7″ springform pan
    1. can put a round piece of parchment paper underneath
  2. Pizza crust mix
  3. Spaghetti or pizza sauce
  4. Mozzarella cheese
  5. Olive oil spray
  6. Pepperoni
  7. Olives

Of course use any pizza toppings you love or just leave them plain cheese for the littles.

I like this pizza dough mix because all you need is hot water to turn out great in just a few minutes. This air fryer dinner recipe is something my older girls can make on their own, which they love.

  • If you’re making Ninja Foodi pizza you could just use their air fryer basket instead of the springform pan.

It won’t have a totally flat bottom because of the holes in the bottom but that’s no big deal. I like using the pan so everything stays in tact though.

Once your dough is the right consistency then you press it into your pan. Spraying with olive oil beforehand does help.

You’ll want to preheat your air fryer to 320 degrees for a few minutes now.

Then you’ll want to spray your raw dough with some olive oil spray and “bake” it a bit before you load it up with toppings.

Once that is done spread on some sauce, cheese and toppings and you’re set to melt those. Margherita pizza is my husband’s favorite pizza.

  • Since these are just the right size for one everyone can personalize it with exactly what they love on their pie.

We have made Instant Pot pizza before but this way gets it nice and crispy. You can get the CrispLid to turn your Instant Pot into an air fryer. See which one you like. It’s our favorite meal.

Once it’s done slice it into thin slices and you have the most perfect little pepperoni pizza ever.

I have that problem, so I put my pepperoni in microwave on paper towels and heat for just a few seconds then put them on the pizza when I take it out of the air fryer. Pressing into the cheese didn’t work. I use frozen deep dish pizzas and add the pepperoni. They are 4pak for $4 at Walmart frozen section. Cook in 7 minutes, no mess to clean up and delicious

If they're loose then they might. Just after the first minute or so open it up, press pepperoni on to slightly melted cheese and they'll stay in place

For an even quicker pizza use flour tortillas for the crust one for thin crust two for thick crust moisten bottom tortilla with water so they stick together
