Some of our readers have talked about how they were lucky enough to have an air fryer at work. In some cases, they pitched in together to buy one. Sometimes somebody brought one. Whatever the case, all of them have loved that luxury!

For those people, and others who get to eat at home while working, you need this recipe! You can cook a frozen pizza, including preheating and everything in under 10 minutes. This is plenty of time for a lunch break.

Plus, since you are using the air fryer instead of the oven, you have no risk of forgetting to shut it off, it is more energy-efficient, and it won’t heat up your whole kitchen!

This is an all-around win and will be how I always make a personal pizza.

Also, let’s think about the kiddos here – my kids LOVE frozen pizza and now they can make frozen pizza in the air fryer with no help at all. Makes a great after school snack for them to share!

Besides this air fryer frozen pizza, we also love to make air fryer frozen french fries and frozen chicken nuggets in the air fryer!

How to Make Air Fryer Frozen Pizza:

Gather your ingredients – Obviously, you need your personal sized frozen pizza. We used a hand-tossed crust pizza, so a crust of medium thickness. If you like to add your own toppings to pizza, and who doesn’t, you can get them out and prepared also. This is a good time to preheat your air fryer to 380 degrees F also.

Cook the pizza – Add whatever toppings you chose to your pizza. Next add your pizza to the air fryer basket and cook for 6 minutes at 380 degrees F. You need to start checking it here. Depending on your crust and air fryer model, it could be done. If you have a thicker crust, like ours, it will likely take 8 minutes or more.

After it is done, remove and let it cool for 2-3 minutes before slicing and serving.

FAQ:

Can I cook with parchment paper or foil in the air fryer?

Placing foil or a full sheet of parchment paper in the air fryer might make clean up a bit easier, but it’s not allowing maximum air flow in the air fryer, which is what makes air fryers so magical! If you’d like to use parchment paper, be sure to buy the kind designed for air fryers with holes in the paper.

Can you use an air fryer to reheat pizza?

Absolutely! Reheating pizza in an air fryer gives it that fresh baked taste and texture. Reheat at 350 degrees F for 3-4 minutes.

Do I need to preheat the air fryer?

Some recipes work best when you preheat the air fryer, but it’s not always necessary. In this case, we do prefer to cook with a preheated air fryer, but the pizza will still come out delicious if you’re short on time and don’t wait for it to preheat.
