Another air fryer recipe for all you busy home cooks out there! Forget takeout. Make personal pizzas in minutes by turning your air fryer into a mini pizza oven.

This air fryer pizza recipe takes a twist with a double-decker crust! Layer two tortillas spread sauce and cheese in between, then pile on your favorite toppings on the top layer.

Ingredients

Here’s what you need to make the easiest tortilla pizza at home:

tortilla wraps, mozzarella cheese, cheddar cheese, salami, and pizza sauce.
  • Flour Tortilla – perfect for air fryer pizzas because they cook much faster than traditional pizza dough and require no prep work like kneading or rising. This makes them ideal for a quick and easy pizza fix.
  • Pizza sauce – You can use store-bought marinara sauce for convenience, or make your own from scratch using crushed tomatoes, herbs like Italian seasoning, and spices.
  • Pepperonis or Ham – Both are great options. Pepperoni slices adds a cured flavor, while ham offers a milder, smoky taste. Choose whichever best suits your preference.
  • Cheese – Mozzarella and cheddar are my favorite combination for making homemade pizza! Mozzarella melts beautifully, providing a gooey texture, while cheddar adds a sharper flavor and a touch of color.

Cooking Tips:

  1. For a thicker and more flavorful air fryer pizza, try a double-decker crust! Layer two tortillas with cheese and sauce in between. This creates a thicker, chewier crust and gives you space for extra cheese and sauce in between the layers for a flavor and texture boost.
  2. Go easy on the sauce – Too much sauce can make the tortilla soggy. Spread a thin, even layer, leaving a small border around the edge to create a crispy crust.
  3. Shred your cheese – Shredding your mozzarella will give you a meltier, more delicious topping.
  4. Don’t overload – Resist the urge to pile on too many toppings. The air fryer cooks quickly, and a heavy load can lead to uneven cooking and a soggy middle.

Cooking Time

The cooking time for air fryer tortilla pizza can vary depending on your air fryer model and desired level of crispness, but typically it takes between 3-5 minutes.

Here’s a breakdown:

  • For a crispy crust: Aim for 4-5 minutes.
  • For a softer crust: Cook for 3-4 minutes.

Keep an eye on your pizza at the last minute to ensure the cheese is melted and bubbly and the crust reaches your preferred level of crispness.

What to Serve With

While air fryer tortilla pizzas are delicious on their own, you can easily turn them into a complete meal by adding some tasty sides. For a light and refreshing option, a simple green salad with a light vinaigrette dressing cuts through the richness of the pizza.

If you’re craving something more indulgent, whip up some quick garlic bread using sliced baguette or French bread.

For a warm and comforting meal, pair your pizza with a bowl of creamy tomato soup.
