Cooking a Frozen Pizza in the Air Fryer

how to cook frozen pizza in an air fryer

If you want a very quick snack, try throwing a frozen pizza in an air fryer.  It cooks faster than a conventional oven because there is no pre-heat time.  In fact, your pizza will be done in the Airfryer before your big oven comes to temp.

The product I used was the Power Air Fryer XL 5.3 Quart and the pizza was a square frozen Totino’s pizza. The total cook time was 8 minutes on 400. I was very impressed and will start cooking personal pan pizzas and other smaller frozen pizzas in the air fryer.

How to make a frozen pizza better

My wife and I always stock up on frozen pizzas when they’re on sale.  You can take a mediocre frozen pizza and make it better by adding toppings and ingredients.  I typically like to sprinkle on more cheese, a bit of ghost pepper flakes, and spray olive oil all over the pizza with the Misto.

I can’t wait to try the Totino’s pizza rolls cooked in the air fryer and other snacks like mini tacos and egg rolls.

Air Fryer Frozen Pizza

Cooking frozen pizza in an air fryer is a great way to quickly cook pizza without waiting for the oven to preheat.
Cook Time 8 mins
Total Time 8 mins
Course Snack


  • 1 Frozen pizza personal pan size (Totinos)
  • olive oil optional
  • extra cheese optional


  • Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees for two minutes. Place the frozen pizza in the air fryer and cook on 400 for 8 minutes. Your air fryer might be different than mine so cooking times may vary. Check the pizza after cooking for 6 minutes or so. When done, the crust should be crispy and the center of the pizza should be cooked through.


You can add extra cheese and cooked toppings before cooking for a better pizza. I like to spritz some olive oil before cooking also.
