I’m a HUGE fan of using the air fryer for simple dinners. I also love to reduce food waste wherever possible and I think that air fryers really help with this. You can re-heat leftovers in just a few minutes, to crispy delicious perfection, and you can use up leftover items from your fridge such as veggies and even bread to make delicious snacks in next to no time.

I’ve got a TON of great air fryer recipes for beginners and today I want to share with you my super simple air fryer tortilla pizza recipe. It takes just FIVE minutes to cook! It is absolutely delicious and a great way to use up leftover tortillas, perhaps ones that have gone a little bit hard.

I’ve made this recipe using the Ninja Foodi Dual Zone 7.6L Air Fryer AF300UK which I chose from the Electricals shop on the Very website.

Ingredients for air fryer tortilla pizza:

1 Flour tortilla (corn, or low carb ones would work well also)

30ml Pizza sauce (I sometimes use a thickened version of my pasta sauce for this)

Pepperoni or other toppings

30g grated mozzarella cheese (or similar)

Herbs (basil and oregano are my favourite!)

Method for making air fryer tortilla pizza:

Place your tortilla on a chopping board.

Spread pizza sauce over the tortilla. If you don’t have this in you can use a little passata and tomato puree mixed together OR even just use tomato puree and jazz it up with a little garlic powder, basil and oregano.

Add the meat or other pizza toppings.

Add the cheese last. As the air fryer has a LOT of airflow if you place the pepperoni on first, as I did with one of the pizzas, this may blow off the pizza and you’ll lose out on all that delicious flavour!

Either line the air fryer with baking paper, to prevent sticking, or use a spray oil to spray the entire air fryer basket. I prefer to use baking paper, as it catches the mess and is very simple to remove from the basket with a spatula. I also use spray olive oil, though you’re technically not meant to use this in the air fryer!

There is no need to pre-heat the air fryer for this recipe.

Cook at 200C (400F) for 5 minutes.

Top with a sprinkling of fresh herbs (or dried work well too).

Slice, serve and enjoy! It goes GREAT with air fryer garlic bread too. Alternatively see below for some other great serving suggestions.

Uncooked cookies and pizza in the air fryer basket

As the Ninja Foodi Dual Zone 7.6L Air Fryer AF300UK has two baskets I decided to cook some air fryer cookies at the same time, and the timings worked perfectly. Cooked to perfection!

What did I think of the AF300UK?

The dual zone air fryer is SUCH a good concept. I love air frying, and do it frequently, but I love that you can have two air fryer baskets to use at the same time. They can be set to different times and temperatures, or even different settings entirely. You have the option to max crisp, air fry, roast, reheat, dehydrate or bake.

I used the air fryer baskets, at the same time, on the same temperature and for the same cooking time. The results were fantastic.

Two completely different recipes, both cooked to perfection, and neither had a smell or taste of the other items I was cooking.

This is a great idea if you’ve got a household where someone is Vegetarian or Vegan, or even a household with allergies. You can assign one basket, and one side of the dual zone, to the person with specific dietary requirements to ensure that they don’t get contaminated by meat or allergens.

I’m going to be gifting this on to my sister-in-law, as I have a Ninja Foodi OL750UK that I absolutely adore already, which is quite sizeable!

What toppings go great on an air fryer tortilla pizza?

You can use ANY toppings that you love on a normal pizza. I’ve also got a recipe for an air fryer pizza that you may like instead.

Pepperoni, salami, ham, steak, peri peri chicken breast, cajun chicken breast or rosemary chicken breast all work great too.

What cheeses work well on tortilla pizza?

Again, just about any cheap works great but I love to use shredded mozzarella cheese, grated cheddar cheese or a mixture of the two.

Just about any white cheese works great on pizza, as do some others, and you can even skip the cheese altogether if you’re wanting to save on some calories.

What types of tortillas work best?

Flour and corn are my favourite, or a tortilla that is a mixture of corn AND flour. I love to make homemade tortillas too, and these are delightful when turned into a tortilla pizza.

If you want to use a low carb wrap then the carbzone ones work well for this, just make sure to give the basket a thorough spray before using them, and ideally use a little baking paper to prevent sticking.

How to make the tortilla extra crispy?

Skip the baking paper and spray the basket well, then preheat, if you want to ensure the crispiest base ever. You could also part air fry the tortilla BEFORE adding the toppings for a super delicious and crispy air fryer tortilla pizza.

What herbs work well on pizza?

This is really down to personal preference but I absolutely love to use basil and oregano. Fresh is my favourite but I do also use a lot of dried herbs, as I cook from scratch most days, and can’t grow enough herbs to keep up with the amount that I need to use!

Additional tips:

Always make sure to put the cheese last to weigh down the toppings.

Read my air fryer tips post if you want to learn more about using an air fryer. I’ve got a ton of great recipe posts too such as air fryer side dishes and air fryer desserts. Packed FULL of great ideas from myself and other food bloggers.

Some other great ideas that work well are breakfast tortilla pizzas and Mexican tortilla pizzas. I love to make my own Mexican spice blend which is packed full of flavour to jazz up any leftover peppers and onions from the bottom of the pantry.

Something to note about air fryer recipes is that all air fryers have different sizes, depths and as such the cooking times can vary. All air fryer recipes on this website are intended as a guide, and not a guarantee that the timings will be perfect. Enjoy!
