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.
What do you need for Air Fryer Pizzas?
- Pizza Dough or Crust
- Pizza Sauce
- Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
- Pizza Toppings of Choice
That’s all you need, this is perfect served up with some Air Fryer Chicken Wings. I say to make these, wings and enjoy a movie night at home!
Let’s enjoy an Air Fryer Pan Pizza!
- Gluten-Free Pizza Dough or Crust
- 2 Cups Pizza Sauce
- 2 Cups Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
- Additional Pizza Toppings
- Prepare the pizza dough as instructed on the recipe that you are using if needed.
- Spray a 7-inch springform pan or a sheet of foil with olive oil cooking spray.
- Place the pizza dough or crust on the foil or pan and shape to fit the size you prefer.
- Top with pizza sauce, pizza toppings, and cheese.
- Bake at 375 degrees for 8 minutes in the air fryer.
Remember that all air fryers heat differently. If you are using a crust that is already cooked, check on the pizza after 3 minutes to be sure you do not over cook it.
If you are using a pizza dough, a cook time of 8 minutes worked perfect for our pizzas. Be sure to check it though after 5 minutes to be sure it's cooking nicely.
A nice coat of olive oil spray on top will get the crust nice and golden brown.
