Cooking Time for Air Fryer Frozen Pizza

Cooking times depend on the size and type of pizza and the air fryer temperature. Based on a 350F / 180C temperature, your cooking time for air fryer frozen pizza will be:

  • a 6-7 inch deep dish pizza will take about 10 minutes.
  • a pizza that is 7-8 inches will need 10-12 minutes.
  • bigger pizzas can take up to 15 minutes.

Top Tips

  • Depending on the size of your Air Fryer, you can cook multiple personal pizzas in one go.
  • For the best results, do not overcrowd the air fryer basket so that the hot air circulates well and pizza cooks evenly.
  • The size of your Air Fryer basket will determine the largest pizza you can cook.
  • Also, individual pizzas may vary slightly in thickness so try and put pieces of similar thickness in at the same time. That way your pizzas can cook at the same rate.
  • For a crisper crust, spray the base lightly with some olive oil.
  • You can always reduce the temperature. If you notice your pizza starting to burn before it cooks through, then reduce the temperature for the next time.
  • Parchment paper liners are great (see images below) as it reduces clean up after cooking. But for the best results

Air fryer temperatures can vary depending on the make and model. I recommend starting with less cook time, checking for doneness, then adding more time as needed.
