How to Make Air Fryer Pizza

For making pizza in an air fryer, you need to prepare the pizza base first. Now, you can go for a store-bought pizza base also but I like to make my own as it’s very easy to make and it takes just 5 minutes to bake the base. So, why not?

Also, this time I have made pizza base using semolina. If you want to use whole wheat flour then you can check my post Whole Wheat Pizza’.

Thus this post has 2 parts, the first is to make the base and the other is to make Pizza.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q) Can I make Pizza directly after rolling the pizza base?

Q) How to get a crisp base?


Q) Can I keep The Pizza Dough In the Refrigerator Or Freezer?

After the first rise of the dough (that is after step 9 of ‘making dough’ method), you can keep it in refrigerator up to a day or in the freezer for up to 3 months. Whenever you need to make, take out 30 minutes before making so that it softens up. And then proceed as usual. If in the freezer, take out and keep in refrigerator overnight. When becomes soft, take out and proceed.

But, I will repeat that fresh base tastes the best.

Q) New To Bread Baking?

If you are new to bread making or have some inhibitions in using yeast, then my suggestion is that you first go through the basics by reading ALL ABOUT YEAST and BASICS OF BREAD MAKING.

Once you get familiar with yeast then the pizza base is good to start with. You get an idea of the yeast, dough etc and then can move easily to bake loaves of bread. You do not require a loaf tin. No fear of cracks or getting a perfect loaf of bread.

  • air fryer


For Pizza Base

  • 2 Cups (280 g) Fine Semolina (Chiroti Rava)
  • 1 tbsp Cane Sugar Or Any Other Sweetener
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Instant Yeast
  • 3/4 Cup + 1 tbsp Water, Lukewarm
  • 1 tsp Oil

For Pizza

  • 1/2 Cup Pizza Sauce
  • 1/2 Cup Veggies (Onion, Bell Peppers, Capsicum, etc)
  • 200 g Pizza Cheese
  • 2 Tbsp Oil


For Pizza Base

  • If you are using a store-bought pizza base then skip this section and straight away move to 'Make Pizza' section below.
  • Take fine semolina, salt, cane sugar and instant yeast in a bowl.
  • Add water and knead into a soft dough. I used my food processor to knead the dough.
  • If you are kneading by hand then knead it for at least 10 to 15 minutes till the dough stops sticking and becomes smooth.
  • Take out the dough, keep it in a greased bowl and turn the dough upside down so that it is well greased from all sides, otherwise the dough may dry out during proofing and develop cracks.
  • let it proof for an hour or till the dough doubles in volume.
  • (Tip: As it's very cold nowadays, so I kept the dough in the air fryer after preheating it for 3 minutes at 180 degrees C and it proofed well in exactly one hour)
  • Take out the dough, knead it for 30 seconds.
  • Divide the dough into 5 or 6 pieces.
  • Dust a little dry flour on the kitchen counter and roll a round pizza base. Keep the size that fits in your air fryer basket.
  • Keep the base thin only as it rises while baking also.
  • After rolling, take out the air fryer basket, put the rolled dough, and leave it for 5 minutes for second proofing.
  • Prick nicely using a fork otherwise, it will puff up like a balloon while baking.
  • Preheat the air fryer (without the basket) for 3 minutes at 180 degrees C.
  • After 3 minutes, insert the air fryer basket into it and bake the pizza base for 4 to 5 minutes.
  • The pizza base is ready. Make all other base like this.
  • Let it cool on a wire rack or make pizza immediately.
  • Once cooled completely, you can store these in a ziplock bag and keep in the refrigerator.

Make Pizza

  • Preheat air fryer for 3 minutes at 180 degrees C.
  • Take pizza base, brush oil on the edges. Apply pizza sauce all over, arrange veggies and grate cheese.
  • Keep it on the air fryer basket and bake for 5 minutes at 180 degrees C.
  • Lift it using a spatula.
  • Serve with love, Strawberry Mojito optional.


  1. If you are using a readymade pizza base then skip the first part and straight away start from how to make Pizza.
  2. This much dough gives 6 pizzas each of 6''
  3. You can use any other flour instead of semolina like whole wheat flour, refined flour, or a combination of flour. In that case, everything will remain the same except the quantity of water.
  4. If you do not have fine semolina then grind the regular one in your mixer and you will have fine semolina.
  5. Do not bake at a higher temperature otherwise, it will remain soft from the bottom.
  6. Pizza base remains good for upto 2 days in the refrigerator.
