Air Fryer Bagel Bites

by Karly

We love making Air Fryer Bagel Bites for a quick lunch for the kids (or for me!) when we’re short on time! These frozen bagels are topped with pizza sauce, cheese, and pepperoni for a tasty lunch in under 10 minutes!

If you somehow found this recipe and don’t know what a bagel bite is, let me fill you in.

It is a small bagel with tiny pizza toppings on it. You buy them in the frozen food section of your grocery store. They are usually served as a quick and easy snack or a lunch for kids, much like air fryer pizza rolls.

The things are “ok” when you make them in the microwave, but the temperature and texture of the bites are inconsistent. However, they are perfect when you cook them in the air fryer. They are as good as they get!

And hey, these might make a great lunch for the kids, but don’t let that stop you…they’re pretty great for adults too. I’ve been known to eat my fair share. 😉

Ingredient Notes:

Bagel Bites- As of the time of this publication, you can get plain cheese, pepperoni, or sausage and pepperoni bagel bites. Go with whichever flavor you want, this recipe will work for all of them. They usually come in a box of 18 or 40.

How to Make Bagel Bites in the Air Fryer:

Air Fry: Add bagel bites to your air fryer basket. Space them out in a single layer, try not to let them touch. I was able to easily fit 9 bites in my 6 qt air fryer. (See our recommended air fryers here.) Air fry for 8 minutes at 350 degrees F. Let cool for just a couple of minutes before serving.


Do I put the bagel bites tray in the air fryer?

No, the tray is meant for microwave use only and isn’t safe (or necessary) for the air fryer.

Can I add extra toppings to the bagel bites?

Sure! Add a slice of olive, finely minced onion or peppers, or whatever sounds tasty during the last 2-3 minutes of cooking.
