How Do I Make This Air Fryer Pizza Recipe?

You might think making pizza from scratch is too time-consuming. But with the help of your air fryer, you can cook your pizza at home in just 10 minutes. All you have to do is follow these instructions:

Step One: Prepare the Pizza Dough

Mix the yeast with warm water in a large bowl and stir. Allow the yeast to rest for around five minutes until it begins to bubble. Then add the sugar, flour, olive oil, and salt. Mix until the dough ingredients are fully incorporated.

Step Two: Knead the Dough

Using the dough hook on your stand mixer, knead the dough for around five minutes on medium speed. You can also use your hands to knead the dough by transferring it to a lightly floured surface and working it for around 10 minutes.

Step Three: Let the Dough Rise

After kneading your dough, transfer it to a lightly oiled bowl. Cover the bowl with a clean towel and rest in a warm place for around one hour until the dough has doubled.

Step Four: Roll Out the Pizza Crust

Once the dough has doubled, remove it from the bowl and transfer it to a lightly floured surface. Separate the dough into four sections and roll each piece into a flat crust with a rolling pin until it’s around eight inches in diameter. 

Step Five: Air Fry the Pizza Crust

Dust the air fryer pan with cornmeal and transfer one pizza crust into the pan. Lightly press the crust down into the bottom of the pan. Preheat the air fryer to 380 degrees, then place the dough in and cook for four minutes.

Step Six: Add the Toppings

After four minutes, remove the crust from the air fryer and top it with pizza sauce, shredded cheese, pineapple, ham, and an additional layer of cheese. Return the basket to the air fryer and continue cooking for 6 minutes.

Step Seven: Cook the Other Pizzas

Repeat steps five and six with the remaining three pizza crusts.

Can I Use Different Toppings on My Air Fryer Pizza?

We love the sweet and salty combination of ingredients in Hawaiian pizza! But that flavor combination isn’t everyone’s favorite. Luckily, this recipe is easy to customize! Since you can prepare four individual pizzas, each one can have different toppings.

When it comes to picking the perfect toppings for your pizza, there are a few popular options to choose from:

  • Meats – pepperoni, sausage, bacon, ham, chicken, ground beef
  • Vegetables – bell peppers, onions, olives, mushrooms, jalapeno peppers, banana peppers, tomatoes
  • Herbs and seasonings – Italian seasoning, fresh basil, garlic or garlic powder, red pepper flakes
  • Cheese – parmesan, goat cheese, mozzarella, Romano, asiago

Can I Use Premade Pizza Dough in the Air Fryer?

If you want to enjoy homemade pizza but don’t have time to make the dough from scratch, try using premade pizza dough instead. Follow the instructions for cooking your dough, but keep an eye on the crust to keep it from burning. Premade dough may not take as long to cook as homemade dough.

How Do You Store Air Fryer Pizza?

These individual pizzas are the perfect serving size for one person. That means you can make them to order! But if you prepare too much pizza at once, you can store the leftovers until you’re ready to eat them again.

Prepared air fryer pizza can be stored in an airtight container for up to five days. When you’re ready to eat your leftovers, cook them in the air fryer at 350 degrees for around two minutes or in the oven at 350 degrees for around five minutes.

You can also store the prepared pizza dough in the refrigerator or freezer if you don’t use it all while cooking. Place the dough in a storage bag or airtight container and keep it in the refrigerator for up to four days. Transfer the dough to the freezer for long-term storage, where it can be kept for up to three months.

When you’re ready to cook your frozen pizza dough, move it to the refrigerator and let it thaw overnight. Then, follow the instructions in the recipe for cooking.
