Air Fryer Pizza gives you individual sized pizzas in less time than it would take for delivery, so any night can be pizza night.


  • 1/4 lb. pizza dough, at room temperature*
  • 1/2 tsp. olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp. cornmeal, optional
  • 1 Tbsp. tomato sauce
  • 1/4 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Toppings of your choice (fresh basil, pepperoni, sliced mushrooms, etc.)


  1. Preheat air fryer to 350°F.
  2. Stretch or roll the dough into a very thin disk just small enough to fit into the basket of your air fryer (about 8 inches in diameter and ¼-inch thick).
  3. Rub both sides of the dough with olive oil, then place it in the air fryer basket. Sprinkle top with cornmeal, if using.
  4. Cook for 5 minutes. Flip and cook for 5 minutes more.
  5. Spoon the sauce onto the dough. Use the back of the spoon to spread it into a thin layer, leaving a ¼-inch border around the edge.
  6. Sprinkle the Italian seasoning over the sauce.
  7. Sprinkle the cheese on top. Cook for 1 minute to soften the cheese. Add remaining toppings and continue to cook for 3-4 more minutes, until toppings are heated and starting to brown in places.
  8. Let pizza rest for a few minutes before eating. It’s very hot!
