Making huge homemade pizza can be hard, or, so we thought. Turns out, we just hadn’t tried creation it in an air fryer yet (for pizza)! This fantastic simple recipe yields some of the best pizza to ever come out of our kitchen. The air fryer excels in cooking crust ours was airy in the center and crunchy on the outside, immediately like in a true pizza oven! We’re beyond hooked, and we think you will be too. Who knew great pizza could be this easy?!
A couple tips for you:
For all time build your pizza inside the air fryer basket. Transferring an already-topped uncooked pizza is… very hard.
Use two pairs of tongs or two (2) spatulas to cautiously remove cooked pizza from the basket. It takes a modest concentration, but the pay off is big: all the toppings stay on the pizza, instead of the bottom of your air fryer.
