Air Fryer Pizza Toast

If you have never tried the air fryer pizza toast, this is your sign to go and make this recipe. I have used thick bread similar to the Texas toast bread in this recipe, as a thick cut bread gives better results.

This is my take on the famous Pizza toast recipe, and in no way do I claim it to be authentic. I like making it this way, and this is my vegetarian version of the air fryer pizza toast, or some could even call it close to the air fryer Texas toast pizza.

This recipe is simple and easy. You can make this pizza within 5-6 minutes, and you will love the results.

It is like small mini pizzas on bread, and the taste?


This recipe is perfect for when you do not have enough time to make meals; this seems like the ideal way to make something quick and delicious.

Why you will love the recipe

1. It is very simple, easy, and doesn’t require a lot of ingredients. I recommend using thick-cut sliced bread to make this recipe, or you can even use Texas toast for this pizza recipe..

2. It is Kid-friendly- Trust me, not all recipes are kid-friendly, as some kids are picky eaters. However, I have never come across a kid who doesn’t like cheese toast and pizza. This air fryer pizza toast combines both, making it one of the best kid-friendly recipes on the list.

3. It is pretty versatile- You can change the combination of pizza sauce, toppings, and cheese, making this recipe a new one every time you try a new combo.

Ingredients and substitutions

Bread– Thick-cut bread is what you need to make this homemade recipe, but if you do not have thick-cut bread, then you can also use Texas toast, which would work fine as well, and you can make an air fryer Texas toast pizza, which would then be a garlic bread pizza toast. Either way, it tastes good.

You can even make this on a loaf of French bread and then chop it into pieces, giving it the right finger food presentation.

Butter- You need to spread butter on the side of the bread where you would not put any toppings or cheese. If you use a Texas toast, you do not need to do this!

Mozzarella cheese- You need this to top the toast with some cheese, as this is a pizza toast for a reason. You can also use a cheese blend to get a better taste. You can also use fresh mozzarella cheese to get a fresh, creamy flavor from this pizza toast.

Toppings- You can use any toppings of your choice. I love mushrooms and olives and pickles and hence used this combo. I want to add that maybe I should have replaced the pickle with some finely chopped bell peppers, as that would be a better combo.

You can top up your pizza toast with fresh mozzarella, burrata, and slices of tomatoes like Hailey Beiber, or go for the classic pepperoni and cheese like everyone else on the internet.

Different toppings that you can add to your pizza toast

Some of the other toppings that you can add to your pizza toast are-

1. Pepperoni and cheese

2. Salami, Sausage, and cheese

3. Chicken and cheese

4. Mushroom, Olives, corn, and cheese

5. Mushroom, onions and cheese

Another variation for this recipe is the famous Haley Beiber tiktok pizza toast recipe, where she tops up sourdough bread with some fresh mozzarella, melts it in the oven, and then tops it with some tomato sauce(or pizza sauce. You can use anything you like here), tomato slices, burrata cheese, and some grated parmesan. She toasts it again for a few minutes till the cheese melts.

Tips to make the perfect AIR FRYER Pizza Toast

1. Make sure you layer the pizza toast with pizza sauce, cheese, and then toppings. This anchors the cheese, preventing it from flying around when you start the air fryer.

2. You should try and use thick-cut bread. This makes it easier to hold them down because they are thick. You can try making it with regular slices of bread, but check after the first two minutes to ensure the bread is not flying around.

3. You do not need to preheat the air fryer for this recipe. You can if you want to; I didn’t and would recommend you do the same.

4. You can use parchment liners if you are worried about the air fryer getting messy after you make several air fryer pizza toasts back to back.

How long do you cook, and at what temperature?

You can cook Air fryer Pizza toast at 200°C for 5 minutes. It cooks perfectly every time. If you want to, you can cook it for a minute or two longer, but mostly it is done at the 5-minute mark.

Yes, it is that easy to make this recipe.

Can you freeze them?

You can refrigerate these air fryer pizza toasts for 2-3 days. However, they will stay frozen for 2-3 months if you want to freeze them.

This way, you can make a few in advance, and when you do not have time to make dinner or want an easy meal, you can reheat these, and they are ready to serve.

How do you store and reheat the leftovers?

Freeze the leftover pizza toast first on a sheet pan and freeze them separately. Once frozen in about 5-6 hours, you can drop them in a zip lock bag and freeze them together.

This way, the toppings and everything stays intact, and the two pizza toasts do not freeze with each other.

Reheating can be a task if they stick to each other; going through that process is not fun.

Reheat them at 200°C in the air fryer for 3-4 minutes, and they will come out as good as when you first made them.

  1. You can apply butter on the pizza toast if you want to, but I did not in this recipe.
  2. You can add any toppings and experiment with pepperoni and other meat options.
  3. Make sure to check the pizza toast after 5 minutes and you can keep it longer in there if you think you need more browning on the cheese.
