Reheating Pizza Air Fryer
I know y’all make frozen “pies” at home when you’re busy and need a quick dinner right? BUT you probably don’t finish the whole thing all the time. Us too.

Can you use an air fryer to reheat pizza?
Absolutely. This is just one of many air fryer benefits, this thing is great for everything. Instead of just nuking it so it’s a floppy piece of softened dough, you can now make it taste as good as fresh! Just takes 1-4 minutes.
I mean really. I’m sure you’ve needed to do this thousands of times in your life but I guarantee this will be a game changer. It is really hard to get pizza slices to that same texture as when it’s freshly out of the oven.
THIS is it though my friends. I guarantee you’ll never use your microwave for this again.
To say we love this cheesy treat is probably an understatement. My girls are kinda’ obsessed with making air fryer frozen pizza rolls when they want a quick in between meal snack.
Usually with those you only put in the # you think you would eat in that sitting. BUT you could use these instructions if you had some leftover too. I’d just say 1 minute would do it for those little bites.
You’ve gotta’ air fry it people!! I swear it will make it taste just like it was freshly baked in your oven again in just 1-4 minutes.
Air Fryer Reheat Pizza
This is what we had at the end of the day, yeah didn’t look super appetizing. I made this for lunch but there were just 3 of us. I personally like mine browner than you see here so I threw 2 pieces in right away.
Then for dinner everyone did the same at 400 degrees for 2 minutes and it brought them back to life.

You could easily omit the parchment paper if you didn’t have any or really wanted the bottom crispy too. I just care about the top cheese really and wanted an easier cleanup (since the cheese will ooze).
I do suggest you always preheat your Cosori or other brand you have for 5 minutes at the desired temperature. If you don’t you’ll need to increase the cook time probably an additional minute. Not a big deal for this but a tip.
It is most important if you cook certain items though like air fryer frozen chicken wings or corn dogs in air fryer. With those you really want an even temp. throughout the timing, this is not as necessary.

It doesn’t matter what brand you have my friends. As long as it has the air crisp or air fry option these tips will work great. I have a few different ones (because I’m kinda’ nuts) and there really is very little differences.
Even the dual toaster oven styles work great to reheat leftovers with an extra crispy cheesy layer on top.
Time needed: 2 minutes.
Reheat Pizza in Air Fryer
Preheat your air fryer for 5 minutes at 380 degrees for cold out of the fridge leftovers or 400 F degrees for room temperature leftovers.
Use a piece of parchment paper just large enough for 2 pieces to fit on it, or spray with olive oil. Place thin slices or thick ones on top and lower into your air fryer basket.
Close drawer and cook for 1-2 minutes if at room temperature to begin with or 2-3 minutes if it was cold out of the fridge.
Timing will vary slightly depending on how large your pieces are, the thickness, and how brown you like it on the top.
You really could use 400 F either way but if it is harder and colder I think it works best at a bit lower temp so the insides can warm well too. If you’re just crisping the top it’s a quick 1-2 min. Pizza reheats quite quickly and less is more so the cheese doesn’t dry out.
Thick crust slices in the basket like deep dish styles may need 3-4 minutes. Just keep an eye on it and open at the 2 minute mark. We typically don’t make thin crusts but they’d probably be closer to 1 min.
