Learn how to reheat pizza in an air fryer. This simple method is the best way to reheat pizza to get a delicious crispy crust and hot, melty cheese. So easy!

THE BEST WAY TO REHEAT PIZZA

My family has pizza for dinner almost every week, and we always have leftovers. Which begs the question, if you don’t want cold pizza, what’s the best way to reheat it? While reheating pizza in the oven is ideal if you’re warming up pizza for a crowd, if you’re just reheating one or two slices of pizza the air fryer is the way to go.

  • Reheating pizza in an air fryer is faster than using the oven.
  • It tastes just as good, if not better, than freshly baked pizza.
  • You can’t beat the marvelously crispy crust and gooey melted cheese!

HOW TO REHEAT PIZZA IN AN AIR FRYER

Reheating pizza in the air fryer couldn’t be easier! This method works to reheat homemade pizza, pizza from your favorite pizzeria, or leftover frozen pizza.

Preheat air fryer to 350° F for 5 minutes, or according to your air fryer’s manufacturer’s instructions.

Add cold pizza slices in a single layer to the air fryer basket.

Air fry at 350° F for 3-6 minutes, or until the pizza is hot with crispy crust and melted cheese.

HOW LONG TO REHEAT PIZZA IN AN AIR FRYER

As a general guide, slices of leftover pizza will take about 3-6 minutes at 350° F to get hot and crispy. The nice thing about the air fryer is that it’s easy to remove the basket to check on the pizza as it cooks.

  • The cook time needed will depend on if you are heating thin crust, regular crust or deep dish pizza. Thin crust pizza will require less time than thicker crust.
  • Pizza with lots of toppings will need more time than plain cheese pizza.

MORE TIPS

  • Preheat the air fryer so that the crust will start crisping up as soon as it hits the hot basket.
  • Arrange the pizza slices in a single layer in the air fryer basket with just a little space in between them so that the hot air can circulate all around each slice.
  • Heat leftover pizza to your liking – some people prefer it just warmed through, while others like it extra crispy.
  • Check on your pizza every few minutes to see if it’s done.

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Preheat the air fryer to 350° F for 5 minutes, or according to your air fryer’s manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Once preheated, add the slice(s) of pizza in a single layer in the air fryer basket with a little room in between slices.
  • Cook at 350° F for 3-6 minutes, or until pizza is crispy on the bottom, cheese is melty, and pizza is and hot throughout.
