Now that you know what you need to pick up at the store, you can focus on putting your pizza together. First, you’ll want to preheat your air fryer to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and spray the basket with cooking oil. After all, you don’t want your pizza dough to stick to the bottom. Make sure you also pat your mozzarella cheese dry since you don’t want the moisture from the cheese to mess up the frying process.
Next, roll out your pizza dough and transfer it to the air fryer. Drizzle some oil on top and spread it around, and follow that with the tomato sauce. Finally, put chunks of cheese all over the pizza to ensure that it melts and spreads relatively evenly.
Put your pizza in the air fryer for about seven minutes. You’ll know it’s ready when the crust looks crispy and the cheese is melted. Now, you can add on all the toppings you want, like basil, parmesan cheese, and red pepper flakes. You’re not going to believe how good it tastes!
Now that you know how to make pizza in your air fryer, you can have a quick, tasty dinner just about any day of the week, without even having to do that much work (or turn on the oven).
