Tips on Making Air Fried Toast Pizza

  • Use any type of sliced bread that you like. White or wheat bread works great.
  • If you have a regular loaf bread or sourdough loaf, cut off a slice and you’re ready to go.
  • Soft rolls work great too. If you want extra garlic butter flavor, buy the pre-baked garlic bread. Then add all the sauce and toppings you want.
  • We like to air fry the bread first to make it like a crispy toast. That way, the toast pizza is guaranteed to be crispy.
  • After air frying the bread on both sides, we add the sauce and toppings.
  • All air fried toast pizza recipe details are in the recipe box below.
  • Pro Tip: Use an air fryer rack that fits your air fryer to keep the toppings from flying around. The hot circulating air can blow your cheese and toppings off the pizza. These racks are great to hold the toppings down as they finish cooking

Toppings may fly off the pizzas, depending on how light they are and how strong your air fryer fan is. Use an air fryer rack to keep the toppings from flying off while air frying the pizzas (see photo in recipe steps).

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).
