Why you’ll love reheating pizza in your air fryer
Reheating leftover pizza can be a hit or miss. While microwaving is the most common method for reheating pizza, it often leaves the crust soggy and the toppings overcooked.
Fortunately, there’s a quick and easy solution that can revive your leftover pizza to its former glory: reheating it in an air fryer.
Unlike microwaving, air frying leftover pizza will restore the crispiness of the crust and bring the cheese and toppings back to their original melty, gooey goodness.
Air frying is a great way to cook fresh pizza too, try my recipes for homemade Air Fryer Pizza, Air Fryer Flatbread Pizza and Air Fryer Frozen Pizza.

What do you need?
Leftover slice of pizza: Whether you have leftover pizza hut pizza, frozen pizza, or homemade pizza you can reheat it in an air fryer.
Parchment or foil: If you like you can place it on a small square of aluminum foil or parchment paper to prevent the toppings from melting all over your air fryer basket. Though check that this is ok for your air fryer as some brands do not recommend it.
How long to reheat pizza in an air fryer?
The cooking time depends on many factors, including the type of pizza you are reheating, how many slices you want to reheat, and how efficient your air fryer is.
Thin crust pizza will reheat more quickly than a thicker crust pizza. If you want to reheat a single slice of pizza then the cook time required to heat it through will be much shorter than if you want to reheat multiple slices.
I have summarized the estimated cook times for different types and amounts of pizza in the table below.
|Slices of pizza||Thin crust pizza||Deep dish pizza|
|1-2||2-3 minutes||3-4 minutes|
|3-5||3-4 minutes||4-5 minutes|
|6+||4-5 minutes||5-6 minutes|
These times are right for my Philips Airfryer. If you have another powerful brand like a Ninja Foodi or Nuwave then expect cook times to be similar.
It might take some trial and error to get the times exactly right, so the first time you try I would check on progress after 3 minutes, and every two minutes after that until the right level of reheating is reached.
You don’t have to turn to air fryer off, just pull the basket out to check on the pizza.
