Did you just have a pizza party at home and have lots of leftover pizzas? Instead of using the oven or microwave to reheat the pizzas, you can reheat pizza in air fryer. It is much faster as compare to using the oven as you do not have to pre-heat the oven. When you use a microwave to reheat the leftovers, they just tend to be… well terrible, the cheese is usually piping hot in some areas and ice cold in others. It is tough to eat a soggy pizza.
With the air fryer, you can enjoy crispy reheated leftover pizza in a few minutes. The best part about an air fryer is it works very similar to a deep fryer. It allows food to get crispy with little or no oil, as it uses hot air circulation technology to crisp up the food. I have experimented with reheating pizza at different temperatures for different timings. Let me share with you the best way to reheat pizza in an air fryer.
How to Reheat Pizza in Air Fryer?
First, take the leftover pizza from the fridge. Place the slices into the air fryer basket. Make sure you place them in a single layer and not to stack them, as this may cause some part of the pizza to not be cooked evenly. If you have a lot of leftovers, reheat them in batches to ensure they cook evenly.
The best temperature for reheating the pizza is at 320F. Reheat them for 3-4 minutes. Check the pizza and see if they are cooked thoroughly; if not, continue cooking and check on them every 30 seconds to ensure they are not burnt. The pizza can reheat differently depending on thickness, so it’s essential to keep an eye on it to get the best results possible. For thicker crust pizza, you may want to increase the temperature to 350F.
