About these Bread Pizza recipe
If you’re looking for a quick and easy meal that everyone will enjoy, try making air fryer bread pizza! These individual pizzas are a hit with both kids and adults alike. Whenever my parents visit me in the UK, they always request this dish for dinner, and it’s easy to see why.
One of the best things about making bread pizza in the air fryer is that it requires hardly any prep time. All you need is a slice of bread, some sauce, cheese, and toppings of your choice. Simply assemble the pizza, pop it in the air fryer, and you’re good to go!
If you don’t have bread at home, don’t worry – you can also make naan bread pizza using the same method. These are just as delicious and can be ready in under 15 minutes.
When it comes to air frying, I recommend using either the Instant Air fryer Vortex plus with a capacity of 5.7l or the Instant Pot Air fryer Vortex plus Versazone, which has a large single capacity of 8.5l. Both of these appliances are great for making bread pizza and many other air fryer recipes.
As for the sauce, I like to use medium hot tomato salsa instead of traditional pizza sauce as my cheat ingredient. I find that the seasoning and flavours are just right, and it gives our homemade air fryer pizza toast an extra kick.
You will need the following Ingredients for homemade Bread Pizza recipe
Bread – For this recipe, you can use any type of bread you like. Sliced everyday bread such as farmhouse bread, tiger sliced bread or thick white bread works well, but you can also use artisan bread or French bread
Sauce – Store-bought tomato salsa is my secret ingredient for the best bread pizza.But you can also use pizza sauce, pasta sauce, pesto, marinara sauce, tomato ketchup, or buffalo sauce..
Cheese – I love using shredded mozzarella cheese for pizza. You can also use shredded cheddar cheese or a mix of both. Use whichever cheese you have available in the fridge.
Seasoning – For seasoning, a pinch of Italian seasoning and ground black pepper is recommended for each slice.
Toppings -You can use any of your favourite toppings for the pizza. Some popular options include tomatoes, peppers, onions, jalapeños, olives, and herbs. Feel free to get creative and try different combinations of toppings.
