1st Thing I Cooked In My New Air Fryer - PIZZA!
Peace foodies and pizza fanatics. I recently gave in to the hype and got an air fryer. I’m always hearing about how easy they make cooking without sacrificing the flavors and textures we all like. Plus, I have a 4 year old that I cook for daily. So anything that will make that process simpler and faster was worth looking into.
For the first go-round I wanted to stick with something real basic so I went with a pizza 🍕. Short list of ingredients and not a lot of work, especially if you’re buying pre-made crust. And my 4 year old sous-chef doesn’t like things being difficult…
- Marinara Sauce
- Barbecue Sauce
- Crushed red pepper
After dressing up the crust, the next step was to preheat the fryer to 350F, then line the basket with parchment paper and toss the pizza in and set the timer. I cooked the first for 10min and the second for 12min.
We made two small pizzas, one with marinara and one with bbq sauce.
My daughter hates crunchy crust so the prettier one is hers lol. I like a little burn on mine so I took the 2nd one.
I was definitely surprised at how everything was heated evenly in that short span of time. I’ve made a few more pizzas since this one and u can get the crust just how you want it by playing with the temp and time settings. It was just as good if not better than any pizza I’ve had out a conventional oven.
