Get ready to make a delicious Air Fryer Pan Pizza that is easy to make gluten-free too!
It’s not hard to see that we love air fryer pizza. One of our favorites is this Air Fryer Garlic Bread Pizza Toast. It’s AMAZING.
The not so amazing part?
My son and I are gluten-free so we have to make an alternative to that delicious pizza. The next best thing? A personal pan pizza.
When I was a kid, we used to get all those little free pan pizza coupons if we read enough books. Do your kids get those? My son does, but unfortunately, he rarely gets to use them since he is gluten-free. I know my daughter is going to enjoy them as she starts to get them too.
My son doesn’t really mind, but I know he also doesn’t know what he’s missing either. Those things are GOOD!
I’m here to tell you though that making personal pan pizzas in the air fryer is just as good, plus it’s fun. This can be done a variety of ways too.
How do you make Air Fryer Pan Pizza Crust?
The crust will be the key here, you can make it completely from scratch and use your favorite pizza dough recipe. If you are gluten-free, I suggest this Delivery Style Pizza dough from Better Batter, it’s my favorite. It makes enough for 4 pan pizzas.
Most dough recipes will make enough for 4 pan pizzas. These do have to be cooked one at a time so remember this when using an air fryer.
If I’m only needing 1 or 2, I cook those and save the remaining dough for more pizzas later.
Another tip is that you can actually use either a piece of foil and shape your pizza or you can use a springform pan and shape your pizza crust in it. Once it’s shaped, simply place the entire pan with your topped pizza dough right into the air fryer. This is a great way to make a deep dish style too.
Now, if you do not want to make your own crust, you can make one that’s already made. If you do, just watch the cooking time closely, because using dough took about 8 minutes. I would suggest about 4 minutes to start if the dough is already made.

I have heard people say their toppings fly off their pizza How do I keep this from happening?
If you wrap it in foil that helps it all stay in place. I wrap mine and curl it up on the sides so it’s not totally covered but it comes up on the side and keeps all the toppings in. Then about 1/2 way through the cooking time, I check on it and fix them if needed. So far though they stay pretty well.
I cooked a pizza in my power air fryer XL in the pizza pan that came with it. The top of the pizza cooked ok, but the bottom of the pizza was rather doughy, how do you make the bottom more crisp?
I usually spray the bottom of the pan with a little bit of cooking oil, did you do that? If not try that next time that seems to help make it crisp.
I will typically just do my own garlic bread to make some gluten-free for my son or I ll use some gluten-free English muffins. YES! If you are like me and simply like to make things a little less messy, this is doable. The key though is to make sure the foil isn t covering the entire air fryer basket.
