Air Fryer Pizza Sandwich

This beyond easy air fryer pizza sandwich is so fun. These Pizza melts are super-portable, kid-friendly and so easy to customize. These are sure to be a new favorite.

Ingredients in Air Fryer Pizza Sandwich

Pizza Dough-For this dish you will need pre-made pizza dough. You can use either a tube of pizza dough or a ball of fresh dough, either will work just fine.

Pizza Sauce-Again, use a prepared pizza sauce. This can be homemade, jarred, or purchased from your local pizza parlor, whatever is your favorite.

Shredded Cheese-I used shredded cheddar for these Air Fryer Pizza Sandwiches as that is what we prefer; however, you could easily use shredded mozzarella, pepper jack, or whatever cheese you prefer.

Olive oil Spray– This is how you will be able to prepare the waffle iron before prepping the sandwiches.

Optional Toppings– These pizza sandwiches work best when you keep it fairly simple, but a small amount of dry toppings, such as a bit of ham, pepperoni or sausage will work well on these paninis.

How to Make Air Fryer Pizza Sandwich

One of the best parts of these sandwiches is how easy they are to prepare. You can also prepare the sandwiches through the “waffling” portion and then air fry when you are ready to serve them.

Begin by dividing up the pizza dough into 12 equal portions, which will yield 6 sandwiches.

Spray a small waffle iron with olive oil spray. Add one portion of dough to the bottom of the waffle iron. Top with 1 Tablespoon of sauce and 1 Tablespoon of cheese. Add a second ball of dough on top and press to close. Allow to cook until golden brown. This should take about 5 minutes.

Remove to a plate and repeat with the remaining ingredients.

Finally, air fry the sandwiches for 5-7 minutes until crisped, golden and the cheese is melted and serve immediately.
