Ingredients

Base

  • 1 small french loaf cut to fit in air fryer
  • olive oil
  • 1 ounce ⅓ cup parmesan, shredded
  • 6 ounce 1 ½ cups mozzarella, shredded

White Pizza

  • 1-2 ounces handful goat cheese
  • 1-2 ounces handful feta
  • 1 cup arugula
  • drizzle balsamic glaze*

Tomato Based Pizza

  • cup or more pizza sauce*
  • 14 pepperonis or more
  • ¼ cup sliced red onion onion
  • ¼ cup sliced bell pepper

Instructions

  • Review all recipe notes and instructions before beginning.
  • Assemble the pizzas. For the white pizza, start by brushing the bread generously with olive oil. Spread the tomato sauce on the other pieces of french bread. Divide the mozzarella and parmesan cheese between the 4 pizzas. Put a little more on the tomato based pizzas. Finish the white pizzas with the feta and goat cheese. Finish the tomato based pizzas with the pepperoni, onion, and peppers.
  • Air fry at 350 degrees for 5-7 minutes or until the cheese is beginning to brown.
  • While the pizzas cook, combine the arugula, a drizzle of olive oil, and salt in a bowl. Toss well. Set aside for topping.
  • Cook the remaining 2 pizzas and enjoy. Finish the white pizza with arugula and balsamic glaze.

Notes

Pizza Sauce: I normally just buy a jar of sauce to keep it simple, but you can make homemade sauce too. ⅓ of a cup is enough for about 2 pizzas. I did not add any to the white pizza.
Balsamic Glaze: This is different from balsamic vinegar. You can normally find it near the balsamic vinegar in the grocery store. It is thicker and sweeter.
Shred your own cheese. I always recommend buying blocks of cheese and shredding it yourself. A couple months ago I did away with pre-shredded for good and I will never go back. It melts so much better and has more taste. 
Use soft french bread. You do not want to use a super crusty bread or the pizza will be too tough. 
Check your pizza after 5 minutes. Every air fryer is made differently so cooking time will vary. I always recommend keeping an eye on the food so it does not over cook. 
The toppings will fly around. I find that sometimes the toppings fly around in the air fryer. You can either just put them back on top at the end or put your cheese on top of the toppings to hold them in place. 
Customize the toppings. This recipe gives 2 different ways to make this pizza. Feel free to customize these with whatever toppings you like, or have on hand. 
Batch cook if needed. Depending on the size of your air fryer, you may have to cook the pizzas in batches. I recommend serving them right as they come out though.
