Air Fryer Bagel Bites

These Homemade Air Fryer Bagel Bites are so much better than the store bought variety and can be made in mere minutes with only a few simple ingredients. This kid-friendly favorite will be a hit with the whole family.

What are the Ingredients in Air Fryer Bagel Bites?

Greek Yogurt– you will need the plain variety here but either regular or fat free will work just fine; however, make sure you do not substitute regular yogurt for the Greek yogurt as the texture will not be the same.

Self Rising Flour- Again, this flour really cannot be substituted so make sure to use self rising rather than all purpose or some other flour.

Garlic Powder– to add a bit of flavoring to the dough.

Salt– I used kosher salt

Pizza Sauce– any homemade or store bought pizza sauce that you like will work just fine, just choose a favorite. You could even substitute leftover marinara sauce for the pizza sauce if you prefer.

Deli White American Cheese– This is not the kind sold individually wrapped in plastic, but rather the kind from the deli country. It has the perfect texture and flavor for these Air Fryer Bagel Bites.

Optional Customizations

  • For the Dough
    • You could also mix in some additional dried seasonings such as dried basil, oregano or Italian Seasoning
    • You could add a bit of parmesan cheese to the dough to add additional flavor
  • Toppings
    • I made these either plain with cheese or with mini pepperonis; however, there are plenty of other toppings that would work great: sausage, olives, any pizza topping you like. You will just want to avoid anything too wet like fresh tomatoes which to lead to soggy bagel bites.

How to make Air Fryer Bagel Bites

Combine the Greek yogurt, self rising flour, salt and garlic powder in a medium bowl. Spray a muffin tin lightly with olive oil cooking spray. Be sure to check that your muffin pan will fit inside your air fryer. These 6-cup pans are what I used.

Divide the dough into 12 equal pieces. Lightly roll each and press a slight indention in the center of each one. Spray the tops lightly with olive oil cooking spray. Air fry at 375 for 5 minutes.

Divide the sauce among the cups, spreading out with a spoon. Tear the cheese slices into quarters. Top each cup with one followed by any additional toppings you would like to use. Add to the air fryer and cook for 5 minutes at 375.
