The best way to reheat pizza in an air fryer. Use an air fryer machine to keep your pizza crust crispy, but as healthy as pizza comes. Site includes air delicious air fryer recipes! #foodie #healthyfood #foodlover


I don’t know about you, but I love pizza. Something made me determined to find a way to make leftover pizza new again and I found the magic trick by choosing to reheat pizza in an air fryer.

I’m telling you this method is genius!

I honestly could have pizza every day if I could. We always get enough to have leftovers because, why not? But I always find myself disappointed in the taste when reheating them.

Leftovers just tend to be… well terrible when microwaved. The cheese is piping hot in some areas and ice cold in others.

Then you finally get to the crust you remember being nice and crispy from the night before and you’re disappointed. Every. Single. Time. It’s now tough to eat and soggy.

You eat it anyway because pizza’s just too good to pass up, but I promise reheating pizza in your air fryer will change your pizza leftover life.

The best part about an air fryer is it works very similar to an actual deep fryer. It allows food to get crispy without making it too dry… as long as you use a little oil on certain foods.

Get ready for fresh tasting and crispy reheated pizza in an air fryer. This method works in any kind of air fryer you own, including the Power Air Fryer Oven.

Once you reheat your first slice of pizza, you’ll learn what works perfectly for your pizza.

Keep your pizza crispy and fresh by reheating it in your air fryer. Enjoy your pizza crust the way it's supposed to be. Heats up quickly to create ooey gooey cheesy pizza. #foodblogger #food #dinner




Before using your air fryer, make sure you are not doing one of these 5 mistakes.


Pull your pizza out from the fridge and place it in the air fryer, being careful not to overlap any slices. If you overlap the slices when reheating pizza in the an air fryer, the pizza will cook unevenly.

That will cause some parts to be too hot and possibly overcooked and some to be still cold. Think about how pizza tastes when microwaved. It’s just not good.


Now simply turn on your air fryer and set the temperature to 350 degrees. If your pizza has a very thin crust, I recommend starting at 325 degrees. The thinner your pizza, the faster it will cook throughout.

If you warm up the pizza too quickly, it can start to burn and make the entire pizza extra crispy — and not in a good way. It will just taste burnt.

If you notice the pizza starting to brown, especially near the crust, turn the heat down 25-30 degrees. This allows the pizza to continue to cook, but at a slower rate.


I like to only reheat 1-2 slices of at a time (depending on the size of your pizza and air fryer) to ensure the pizza reheats evenly. Cook the pizza for 3-4 minutes and then pull it out to check on the temperature.

Continue to cook in increments of 1-2 additional minutes until the pizza is thoroughly heated. Each piece of pizza can reheat differently depending on size and thickness, so it’s important to keep an eye on it to get the best results possible.

Air fryers are designed to be opened occasionally while cooking, unlike an oven. So checking on your food won’t cause it to lose heat if you just pull out the drawer for a few seconds to check on it.

The idea is to get crispy, cheesy pizza just like the first day.

You can use this reheating technique on takeout pizza and homemade pizza. Just remember the thinner the pizza, the lower the temperature!

It’s as simple as that! You will now have fresh pizza that tastes SO much better than those soggy microwave attempts. You can finally enjoy your pizza and it’s easy!

Consider how crispy the air fryer makes your food.


Wednesday 26th of December 2018

Yes, Alta! It makes it stay nice and crispy. Not just reheated pizza, but other kinds of food as well.

Hi Samantha, I had an air fryer a few years back but got rid of it as I never used it. It does make sense that pizza would heat up better in one than in a microwave.

Thank you for sharing at the #kkepingitreal link up.

Hi Debbie, yes it's so easy to have an appliance and not use it. Thankfully now they have cookbooks upon cookbooks to help with what to cook in them to avoid that!

I just can't eat left over food reheated #keepingitreal

I definitely get that. I feel like the microwave kills all the good taste in food. That's the reason I love air fryers. Reheating food is just the start of what you can do. I personally love roasting vegetables and making french fries in them.

Oh this is great! I would rather eat cold pizza (which has it's merits) than pizza reheated in the microwave, it's never the same.

It really isn't Alicia! We used to buy pizza on vacations and stick it on the AC to eat the next day cold. Definitely not the best tasting, but it worked. Air frying it to reheat is SO much better.

I would never have thought of doing this! I will tell my son as he loves his pizza, but I don't eat it often. #keepingitreal

If he loves pizza, he will love it from the air fryer. I am a pizza lover too, but the dip from the box the first night to reheating it in the microwave the next day, is terrible!
