Air fryer mini pizzas are so easy to cook in the air fryer. Here are a few things you need to know to make air fryer pizzas.

Step 1: Toast the English Muffins

To get a crispy crust, toast the English muffins in the air fryer at 380 degrees F or 193 degrees C for 3-4 minutes.

I will sometimes spritz the English muffins with a little bit of olive oil to give it a nice pizza flavor and to help make the English muffins more crispy.

Step 2: Assemble Pizzas

Layer the English muffins with sauce, cheese, then toppings. Add a little more cheese on top, if desired.

Pro Tip: Layer the pizzas inside the air fryer basket. This way, you don’t have to transfer the English muffins from the air fryer basket, to the counter, and then back to the air fryer, and risk loosing pizza toppings.

Just be careful to not burn yourself on the hot air fryer basket.

Step 3: Air Fry

Pro Tip: If you don’t want to get your air fryer basket all cheesy, lay down air fryer parchment paper to make clean up a breeze!
