This makes a 6-8" personal sized pizza. Raw dough can be a little more challenging than using pre-cooked crust, but can be extra delicious for those willing to try. If you want to use a pre-cooked crust, see our recipe here for Air Fryer Pizza with Pre-Cooked Crusts. Air frying time will vary depending how thick you make the crust, type of dough, if there are any sugars added to the dough, and by different air fryer models. Adjust as needed. 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).

On a lightly floured surface, flatten and stretch the dough to round shape. Make sure dough is not too thin or it will tear, about 1/4-inch thick is best. Dust with a little more flour if needed to keep from sticking.

Continue to Air Fry at 380°F/193°C for another 2-4 minutes until crust is lightly golden. (if you want the crust extra crispy - air fry each side a couple minutes more).
