The Best Air Fryer Pepperoni Pizza Recipe

So of course I’m a little biased, I made this pizza, a few times and it tasted great each and every time. So why wouldn’t I say they’re the best when I believe they are? I do have a few tips for anyone who is thinking of making this recipe though so check them out.

Pizza in air fryer. They’re great but I understand not everyone will have the same air fryer that I do. I know that some people like to use silicone moulds in their air fryer, which don’t get me wrong they’re great. With this recipe though, avoid them. I find instead, it’s easier to use baking paper under your pizza. This makes the pizza so much easier to transfer to your air fryer and also makes sure the pizza is cooked evenly.

Another air fryer pizza recipe tip, don’t overload your pizza. If you have too much topping then the pizza will burn on the top and take longer to cook in the middle and you don’t want a burnt pizza. Make sure you have a moderate amount of topping on your ninja foodi pizza so that you get the best pizza possible.
