Ingredients and Substitutions

1 Naan bread- You can use leftover Naan, store-bought Naan, or frozen Naan; anything works fine. I used leftover homemade Naan Bread.

2. Pizza Sauce– You can use marinara sauce or pasta sauce if you do not have pizza sauce.

3. Mozzarella Cheese– If you want to make this vegan, use a vegan cheese that melts very well in this recipe.

3. Toppings- You can use any toppings you choose for this recipe. I have used tomatoes, capsicum, and Onion.

4. Butter or Olive Oil- I brush frozen Naan with some butter while toasting it in the air fryer so it gets all nice and crispy on the outside yet stays soft and chewy. I mostly use butter because it gives the pizza crust a nice buttery flavor.-

How to make Air Fryer Naan Pizza?

It is easy and quick to make an air fryer naan Pizza as long you have the ingredients sorted.

You can use frozen Naan or premade Naan for this recipe, and if that is the case, then toast the Naan inside the air fryer for 3 minutes at maximum temperature, flip it, and start assembling the pizza on the other side.

Spread Some pizza sauce, put some cheese on the Naan, and add some toppings.

You can choose any toppings you like; you can even use leftover chicken, veggies or any curry you think would go well over your Naan Pizza.

Now sprinkle a little cheese on top of the toppings to ensure the toppings don’t fly away.

Put the Naan pizza in the air fryer and cook it at 200°C for 5 minutes. You can cook for a minute or two longer, depending on how golden brown you want the cheese to be!

Enjoy this quick and easy meal!

Air fryer Naan Pizza Toppings

You can cover your air fryer Naan pizza with different toppings. You can use the classic cheese and pepperoni combo, or if you want something interesting, you can even try the butter chicken as a pizza topping.

Some of the popular veggie and meat topping ideas are below-

Corn+Onion+ mushroom

Corn Onion+Bell Pepper

Mushroom+ Bell Pepper+jalapenos

Mushroom+Onion+corn+Jalapenos+ tomatoes

You can mix, match, add, and remove as many toppings to the list above. So, now you know how to make a different Naan Pizza every time and have a list of different toppings ready for a pizza party.

If you are looking for meat + veggie or just meat options, then these could be it-

Diced BBQ chicken+ Onion+ Tomatoes

BBQ chicken+ Shredded chicken+ corn+ bell pepper

Pepperoni+ Cheese

Sauage Diced Chicken+ BBQ Chicken

Again, feel free to add or remove any of the toppings from the list, and you get a different flavor combo every time you mix and match these topping ideas.

Just make sure not to overload a pizza with too many toppings, as that can make the pizza soggy.

Tips to make Air Fryer Naan Pizza

1. Make sure the Naan fits in your air fryer before assembling; otherwise, it could be a task to measure the Naan edges and remove it from the assembled pizza; you can still cut the edges with a knife, but better safe than sorry.

2. You do not need to spray the air fryer basket with oil, as the Naan will not stick to the basket.

3. Preheating is optional for making naan Pizzas. I have never felt the need to preheat the air fryer when making a Naan Pizza, but in case you feel the need to do so, then you do, but it doesn’t make a lot of difference.

4. I have used a Philips air fryer for this recipe, and every air fryer is slightly different, with a difference in power. Your air fryer can take a bit longer or be faster(I highly doubt it since it usually takes longer). But do check on the 4-minute mark to get an idea.

How do you store leftover Naan Pizza?

You can refrigerate leftover Naan pizza in the fridge, and it will last for about three days inside the fridge without any issues.

If you want it to last longer and do not plan to eat it within three days, you might want to freeze it.

If you want to freeze leftover Naan Pizza, then freeze them individually on a tray first, so they do not freeze together for about 4 hours, and then place them in a zip lock bag and freeze them.

If you want to reheat the frozen Naan Pizza, place the slices in the air fryer and reheat them at 200°C for 3-4 minutes, and your slice will be piping hot and taste as good as when you made it fresh.

  • Add the toppings of your choice. I have added some slices of tomatoes, mushrooms, and bell peppers. Place a few more shreds of mozzarella on top of the veggies, just one or two, so that when it melts, it holds the toppings down.

    How to make Naan Pizza in Air Fryer


1. You do not need to spray the air fryer basket with oil since Naan doesn’t stick to the basket. You can still spray the basket with oil if you want a crispy base, but I prefer without.
2. You can use a parchment liner, but it is easy to clean with most pizzas if you do not overload the pizza with cheese(since it can melt and drip).
3. If you are using light toppings, add a shred or two on top of them so that they would melt and hold the toppings down.
