The chef’s advice
- Garnish this pizza as you like! For a pepperoni pizza, lay the sliced peppers on top before cooking. Have fun customizing this pizza and making it yours!
- Check your air fryer pizza after the 8 minute mark to gauge how fast it’s cooking. Not all air fryers are created equal, and some may take more or less time to cook. Also, the cheese can burn quickly, so keep an eye on it once the 8 minutes are up!
- Use the air fryer to reheat leftovers! Bake your leftover pizza at 380 ° Fahrenheit for 2-3 minutes or until the cheese is bubbling.
