Cooking pizza in an air fryer is super easy. If you are after a snack or a light lunch, try making this air fryer pizza recipe that uses pita flat breads as a base. For an extra light base you could also use a flour tortilla.

I usually use fresh basil, mozzarella balls and rich passata for a traditional tasting Italian style pizza, but you can use your favorite sauce and whatever cheese and other toppings you prefer.

I would recommend not piling the base up with too many toppings, as the quick cooking time means that the pizza may not have time to cook through before the cheese starts getting over done.

If you are looking for other cheese-related light lunches or snacks, try my recipe for air fryer toast pizza or air fryer toast quiche.
