If you love pizza and want an easy way of making it, then you must try a puff pastry pizza. Puff pastry becomes the base of the pizza, instead of pizza dough and then you can load it up with your favourite pizza toppings.

This is also perfect for using up your leftover puff pastry and you can roll the puff pastry pizza to the size of your air fryer.

Pizza From Puff Pastry

I started my obsession with pizza from puff pastry with the kids at their after-school baking class. They made a delicious pizza and decorated it with all their favourite pizza toppings, as well as some that they were not so keen on.

I love it when the teacher tries to suggest olives to them and you can imagine the look on the kids’ faces.

Or some of the kids will be put off by peppers.

When they came out of the oven, I tried these little pizzas made from puff pastry I thought they were the most delicious pizza ever.

It then inspired me, for similar for the air fryer. In The Complete Air Fryer Cookbook, we used a homemade pizza crust, but we made it to the size of the air fryer. That is exactly what you can do with this puff pastry pizza, especially if you have a weird, shaped air fryer.

Can You Cook Pizza In Air Fryer

Yes, you can cook pizza in an air fryer. Air fried pizza is amazing, and you have so much choice of which type of pizza that you want to make.

Our favourite is our deep pan air fryer pizza, but you can do whichever one you want, or even cook frozen pizza in the air fryer.

Just remember to stick with a pizza that fits the size of your air fryer!

Can You Cook Pastry In An Air Fryer?

Yes, you can cook pastry in the air fryer. We have done so many times over the years and pastry is so golden and yummy when done in the air fryer.

Though depending on the air fryer type you have, some air fryers struggle to circulate the air around the food, so this can result in a soggy bottom. If this happens with a lot of baked goods you can flip them, such as if you were doing our air fryer Cornish pasties.

Can I Cook Puff Pastry In An Air Fryer?

Yes, you can cook puff pastry in an air fryer and it’s really good. It puffs up just like it does in the oven. Its also a quick way to be able to make a pie in the air fryer.

Pizza From Puff Pastry Recipe Ingredients

Pizza From Puff Pastry Recipe Ingredients

Pastry – In this pizza from puff pastry you can use a regular block of puff pastry or use the ready-rolled pastry, it totally depends on how you like your pizza. I usually make this pizza from off-cuts from making a batch of air fryer sausage rolls.

Toppings – Now that is the question, isn’t it? We all have favourite pizza topping don’t we? I was asked yesterday what my favourite is and I would say I love the shredded chicken, barbecue sauce and cheese like you get at Pizza Hut. But I also love lots of cheese and some tomato. So grab whichever is your favourite pizza topping.

Can You Recommend An Air Fryer?

I often get asked which air fryers I recommend and which one I use. In 95% of our air fryer recipes, we use either the Philips Air Fryer XL or the Cosori XL because they are the best ones, we have found out of many air fryers we have tried over the years. You can click on the links above and read up on them.

Plus, we recommend you head over to our air fryer recipes category as we have more than 500 tried and tested everyday air fryer recipes and have been air frying for 10+ years.

  • Roll. Place your puff pastry onto a clean, floured worktop and roll it out into a rectangle shape with your rolling pin. Or if you have a dual you can go smaller and do one for each dual drawer.
  • Toppings. Next mix the ingredients for your tomato base, then add them onto your rolled out puff pastry. I find it is easiest to add the tomato sauce using a pastry brush. Then decorate with your other pizza toppings such as grated cheese, sliced tomatoes or peppers, or another favourite topping.
  • Cook. Then cook your puff pastry pizza for 8 minutes at 180c/360f or if your air fryer is a little slower, you can adjust and add an extra couple of minutes to the cook time.

Quick & Fun Stuffed Crust

Now this is fun and so quick too. When you start preparing your air fryer pizza, slice some thin strips of cheese, like you are making carrot sticks. Then add them to the four sides of your pastry. Then fold them over. These then become your stuffed cheese pockets. They also give structure to the shape of your puff pastry pizza recipe.

  • Optional – if you would like to create a stuffed crust, roll the pizza slightly longer at the sides, add sticks of cheese, then fold them over, so that they are hidden. You can do this to two sides of the pizza, or all four if you prefer.
