Air Fryer Frozen Pizza is quick to make and ends with a crispy crust you will fall in love with.

I love to cook frozen food in the air fryer and air fryer frozen pizza is no different. The crust ends up crispy while the cheese melts at the perfect rate.

And let me tell you, I am CONSTANTLY making this in my air fryer. With 2 young kids home all the time right now, it’s something super quick and easy to make while putting together the kids’ lunches.

Frozen pizza can vary from frozen French Bread Pizza to Deep Dish Pizza to even Ellio’s rectangle pizza, so there are a few temperatures and times I have found that will end with perfect results.

Just look for your favorite kind of pizza below, follow the cooking directions, and enjoy!

These directions are for smaller personal pizzas or mini pizzas. If you have a larger toaster oven-style air fryer and are looking to cook a larger pizza, you will need to adjust your cooking time.

Cooking Frozen Pizza in the Air Fryer with Temperatures and Times

  • Small frozen personal pizza (mini pizza): 400 degrees for 6 to 8 minutes
  • Frozen French bread pizza: 350 degrees for about 5 minutes
  • Personal frozen deep dish pizza (like Red Baron’s): 400 degrees for 6 to 8 minutes
  • Ellio’s pizza: 350 degrees for about 5 minutes – I like to add a little extra cheese in the last minute to make it even cheesier!

Do I Need to Preheat My Air Fryer?

Yes, I recommend preheating your air fryer to allow the frozen pizza to get crispy on the outside and fully cooked and hot on the inside.

Think of your air fryer like a mini oven. You always preheat it before placing food in and with an air fryer, you should do the same.

This way recipe directions will always have the correct timing and you can start setting and forgetting foods in the air fryer like a frozen pizza!

Can I Place the Frozen Pizza on a Parchment Round?

I find that air fryer frozen pizza cooks best without any parchment round or aluminum foil underneath. Since an air fryer’s heat source is on the top, you want it to circulate as much air to the bottom and get a crispy crust.

Using parchment paper will cause a softer crust.

I also do not recommend using an air fryer silicone basket for these directions. The baskets set the food up slightly higher and will brown the cheese a bit more. If you do plan to use a silicone basket, start your temperature at 380 degrees and cook for a few minutes longer.

Silicone baskets are great for cleanup and are completely dishwasher safe.
