Ingredients needed and substitutions
Tortillas - For this recipe I used 6 Inch Mission Carb Balance Flour Tortillas as the pizza crust. You can swap the flour tortilla for a corn tortilla and make a copycat Taco Bell Air Fryer Mexican Pizza. Just use the corn tortilla as the base and add refried beans, low fat chop meat, taco seasoning and Mexican shredded cheese.
Cheese - Shredded Mozzarella works well for this recipe. Fat Free shredded mozzarella is 0 points on WW making it a good choice for this low carb air fryer pizza if you can find it. If you cannot have dairy try using Daiya Dairy Free Shreds for a dairy free pizza. Part Skim Ricotta Cheese or Whipped Cottage Cheese makes for a nice added protein boost to this keto tortilla pizza recipe.
Toppings - I added some fresh grilled Zucchini as a topping for this healthy air fryer pizza. Any grilled vegetable is a nice addition. If you are a meat lover try adding some mini pepperoni.

Yes you can. Cooking pizza in an air fryer is a convenient and efficient way to achieve a crispy crust and delicious toppings. Remember, air fryers can vary in performance, so it's essential to keep an eye on the pizza during the cooking process to achieve your desired level of crispiness. With a little practice, you'll become an expert in making delicious pizzas in the air fryer!
The cooking time for pizza in an air fryer can vary depending on the size and thickness of the pizza, as well as the specific model of the air fryer. As a general guideline, here's an approximate range of cooking times:
Mini or Personal-sized Pizza: 5-8 minutes
Small Frozen Pizza: 8-12 minutes
Medium-sized Pizza: 10-14 minutes
Large-sized Pizza: 12-16 minutes
The best air fryer temperature for cooking pizza typically falls in the range of 375°F to 400°F (190°C to 205°C). However, the exact temperature and cooking time can vary depending on the thickness of the crust, the toppings used, and personal preference for crispiness.
- Choose Whole Wheat Tortillas: Opt for whole wheat or multigrain tortillas instead of refined flour tortillas to increase fiber content and nutritional value.
- Preheat the Air Fryer: Preheat your air fryer to ensure even cooking and a crispy crust.
- Use Cooking Spray: Lightly spray the air fryer basket or the tortilla with cooking spray to prevent sticking.
- Go Easy on Sauce: Use a moderate amount of tomato sauce to avoid making the crust soggy. You can also try using a low-calorie or sugar-free pizza sauce.
- Add Lean Proteins: Use lean proteins like grilled chicken, turkey, or shrimp instead of fatty meats like pepperoni or sausage.
- Load Up on Veggies: Load your pizza with colorful and nutritious vegetables like bell peppers, onions, tomatoes, spinach, and mushrooms. These add flavor and bulk without many calories.
- Watch the Cheese: Cheese can quickly add calories, so use a light hand. Opt for reduced-fat or part-skim mozzarella or try alternatives like feta or goat cheese for a tangy twist.
- Incorporate Herbs and Spices: Enhance the flavor of your pizza with a variety of herbs and spices, such as basil, oregano, garlic powder, or red pepper flakes.
- Precook Dense Veggies: To ensure that vegetables like broccoli or cauliflower cook thoroughly, consider giving them a quick blanch or roast before adding them to the pizza.
- Mind Portion Sizes: Keep the size of your tortilla pizza in check to control portion sizes and calorie intake. A smaller pizza can still be satisfying and delicious.
- Experiment and Have Fun: Don't be afraid to get creative with your toppings! Experiment with different combinations to discover your favorite guilt-free pizza.
