Notes

Air Frying Tips and Notes:
  1. Cook Frozen – Do not thaw first.
  2. Recipe timing is based on a non-preheated air fryer. If cooking in multiple pizzas back to back, the following pizzas may cook a little quicker. 
  3. Recipes were tested in 3.7 to 6 qt. air fryers. If using a larger air fryer, the pizza might cook quicker so adjust cooking time.

If your air fryer is preheated or if you are cooking multiple batches, you may need to reduce timing by a few minutes (unless preheating is called for in the recipe).

Why did the pizza burn in the air fryer?

It’s probably because your air fryer cooks really hot. Ninja air fryers also tend to cook much hotter than other brands. We have a starting temperature and timing. Check your frozen french bread pizza a little earlier. If it looks like it’s cooked and crispy, then you’re good. If you feel you can use another minute or two, then cook it for longer. It’s all trial and error for your first pizza because air fryers all cook so differently and pizza brands can vary in the thickness of the french bread.
