Lots of factors influence outcome of how the pizza reheats. Pizza slices varies so much in size and thickness, so you’ll have to adjust timing. All air fryers are different sizes and some cook much hotter than others. Once you cook your first slice or two, you’ll know more of what works for your model of air fryer and size of your slice. Air fry for about 3 mintues first for 1 slice and add additional minute until it's reheated to your liking. Read our write up discussing the use of perforated parchment sheet or foil to keep the melted cheese on the pizza from sticking to your air fryer basket, try or rack.
1-2slices leftover pizza
oil spray, (optional to lightly coat the pizza so toppings don't dry out - need depends on yoout particular toppings)
Place foil or perforated parchment sheet to base on air fryer basket, rack or tray. Place the pizza on top. If needed, lightly spray the top of pizza so that the toppings don't burn or dry out (optional).
Air Fry at 360°F/180°C for 3-6 minutes or until cooked to your desired crispness. If unsure, start cooking for 3 minutes first. Then check to see if it's to your liking. Cook additional minute or two if you want the pizza to be crispier. Deep dish crusts will take a little longer, while thin crust will be slightly quicker.
Let the slice of pizza cool for a touch & enjoy!
Air Frying Tips and Notes:
Recipe timing is based on a non-preheated air fryer. If cooking in multiple slices back to back, the following slices may cook a little quicker because the air fryer is already hot.
Recipes were tested in 3.7 to 6 qt. air fryers. If using a larger air fryer, the pizza slices might cook quicker so adjust cooking time.
