What I Love About Tortilla Pizza

  • It cooks super fast. They can take as little as 3 minutes to air fry.
  • Since tortillas are thin, they get super crispy in an air fryer.
  • It’s easy to make a low carb version with low carb tortillas.
  • It only takes a few minutes to preheat an air fryer.

Only 3 to 4 Ingredients Needed

  • Medium-Sized Flour Tortillas– I find the medium size works best, but you can use any size as long as they fit in the air fryer basket.
  • Pizza Sauce– you can use jarred pizza sauce or homemade.
  • Cheese– I use shredded mozzarella but Colby Jack or an Italian cheese blend work well too.
  • Pepperoni– I can’t resist pepperoni on a pizza. The mini pepperoni work really well on a Tortilla Pizza.

Easily Customizable

These Individual Tortilla Pizzas can be easily customized. You can make any kind of tortilla pizza you want. I like to top them with pepperoni and a little Italian seasoning, but you can add any pizza toppings. A little Parmesan cheese is a great addition. Just be sure not to weigh the tortillas down too much with toppings. A tortilla doesn’t form a very strong base.

Air Fryer Tortilla Pizza Recipe Tips

To keep the pepperoni from flying off the pizza, try to press them down in the sauce. It will act as a glue and hold them in place.

If you are going to use bell pepper or onion as a topping, you might want to soften them a little in the microwave or by sautéing them in a skillet or you can slice them very thin.

Air Frying Cooking Times Vary

Some air fryers cook a lot faster than others. You’ll want to take a peek at just shy of 3 minutes, especially if you know your air fryer cooks pretty fast. I use the Cosori Pro II 5.8-Quart Slow Cooker.
