As easy as pulling one out of the freezer and heating it up, making a mini pizza in the air fryer is an easy lunch or dinner. It takes less than 10 minutes to make, and does not require preheating the oven! Use your favorite brand of mini pizza and enjoy it in minutes.
While I love cooking, sometimes you just need something quick. I like to keep frozen mini pizzas on hand for an easy lunch or late night snack when I don't feel like preparing anything.
My favorite brand is the Home Run Inn mini pizzas. They have different varieties like sausage and pepperoni, veggie, and plain cheese. The crust is crisp and buttery and turns out perfectly in my ninja foodi air fryer.
Why you'll love this cooking method
- It's quicker than the oven! Making a personal pizza in the air fryer means no preheating.The actual cook time is about 10 minutes or less, which is a total win in my book.
- The pizza comes out perfectly done. Cooking frozen pizza is easy, but it's always nice to have it come out just the way you want it! Air fryer pizza has a crisp crust and a lightly golden brown top.
- It doesn't heat up your whole kitchen. Especially with summer rolling around, the air fryer has been especially helpful for heating up food without using the oven which keeps the house cool.
For more air fryer frozen foods, try air fryer Trader Joe's Orange Chicken, air fryer mozzarella sticks, air fryer frozen chicken wings, Ninja Foodi frozen burgers in the air fryer or air fryer potstickers. These all make tasty snacks!
Frozen pizza of your choice. The cook time will vary depending on the circumference of your particular variety as well as the thickness. But as far as ingredients go, you just need your pizza and you are good to go!
And that's it! There is no need to add cooking spray when making this, as there is enough fat and oil from the pizza toppings and cheese to brown the pizza nicely.
